Issue / Question:
Had to remove power steering pump when replacing valve cover gaskets on my daughter-in-law’s Mitsubishi. Now power steering fluid is bubbling out of reservoir. Followed proper bleeding instructions, but doesn’t seem to help one bit. Daughter-in-law says power steering pump was making noise before we ever removed it, but it wasn’t bubbling like this. Don’t think pump is bad, because it is making all this bubbling. No apparent leaks in the lines that we can see. My son & I need help before his wife loses patience. Valve covers nice and dry though.

Answer:

Sounds like there’s air in it. Sometimes removing the belt and by hand rotating the pump pulley backwards sometimes helps remove the air.
