Thank you for your reply. Not sure how to bleed system. Is there a bleeder valve for the steering fluid/pump?

Did you flush the system?
Did you do the work?
Is it full of fluid?

Thank you for your reply. Manchild completed the work. Replaced all fluid due to the fact that it was no longer in the system, on driveway instead!
