NEVER USE TEFLON TAPE ON ANY POWER STEERING CONNECTION

Let me elaborate on how exactly to bleed your system.

First of all double, and triple check that everything is tight. Loose connections might not leak but could allow air into the system. Do not over tighten o-ring hoses as the o-ring might be crushed.

Step 1: switch ignition OFF

Step 2: raise front wheels off ground (or all 4)

Step 3: turn steering wheel full left

Step 4:fill fluid resevoir to full cold mark.

Step 5: turn steering lock to lock at least 20 times, up to 40 times. If you're using our cooler it may be in excess of 40 times. DO NOT turn the wheel fast, slow is better for the bleeding process and it could likely cause fluid overflow.

Step 6: while turning wheel, check fluid level, a 2nd person is almost required. If you see any signs of bubbles/foaming, recheck all connections for leaks then repeat the steps above.

Step 7: NOW we start the engine. If fluid foams while cranking, wait 10 minutes or more until dispersed air has time to accumulate and purge through the reservoir.

Step 8: Return wheels to center and lower car.

Step 9: run engine at 2000 rpm for two minutes.

Step 10: turn wheel in both directions and check for smoothness and quiet operation.

We took out the COPPER crush washers on the STEERING RACK FITTINGS ONLY they were causing the O-ring fittings to not get a proper seal. The PUMP fitting still needs the crush washer/o-ring as its always been. Replaced one AN fitting with a 90 deg fitting on the reservoir and gave detailed instructions on how to properly bleed the power steering pump.

The reservoirs were changed too, pictures in a few

People who have the crush washers, should we cut them off before installing?

Taken from the website:

Features: Aluminum Baffled Reservoir with -6AN and -10AN Outlets

FAQ: Is this can baffled?
No, both outlets are on the bottom of the can, eliminating the need for a baffle.

So, are the lines black, or silver? In the first picture, there is a silver line, but in the install picture, they are all black.

Thanks for the fast replies, i'll be picking up one of these kits in the future. First kit kind of had bad reviews. It sounds like the kinks have been worked out though.

I have the same problem. Chase Bays advised me to remove the crush washers on the rack for those leaks, but never suggested anything regarding the large fitting at the reservoir.

This is related to the power steering sensor that gets deleted like on our kit and ISIS's, Sikky, any other high pressure hose replacement thats out there. Its there to raise idle if turning left to right while parked, but I find it annoying. Also, theres no need to turn your wheel left to right when idling

The power steering pump of course uses the engines drive belt and like an AC compressor it's going to put "load" on the engine. You might also notice on your other cars (usually 10+ year old ones) when you turn your headlights on, crank the radio up, anything that puts load on the electrical system and/or engine...the idle will drop and/or lights will become slightly dim.

There is a few things that can cause this. Your IACV/AAC is supposed to regulate your idle to compensate but sometimes it can't fight with our weathered components. The first thing is going to be the alternator. Depending on your engine the alternator amp rating is 70 to 135+ amps. You want 100+ amps. Every decent sized city has a shop that can repair and rebuild an alternator or at least test it. Those auto parts store replacement alternators are awful so beware.

Equally important is replacing your battery/alternator/fusebox power wires & grounds. Stock they're usually 10 or 8 gauge which is sufficient depending on your starter and alternator amp ratings but the wires are OLD. I recommend 6-8 gauge for alternator and 0-4 gauge for starter. Engine/Trans ground's 8 gauge and Battery Ground 0-4 gauge.

These items from us will help you:
