I'm no expert, but did you check the resevoir to see if the pump is actually pumping?

Sorry about that. I guess I didn't read your whole post last night. The pump has a relief valve that may be clogged. You could clean that out and put in fresh fluid. That would be the easiest thing to do first.

Like I said before, I'm no expert on the subject. I just installed power steering on my Jeep last week. One of the brochures that came with my pump from Napa, talks about the relief valve. It says that it may get clogged from contamination. The valve looks like it is the part that the pressure hose screws into. It looks like it can be unscrewed from the pump. The picture shows an O ring and a spring inside, so be careful if you pull it out. Maybe someone withsome first hand knowledge will post.

It's duirty fluid more than likely

Take the low pressure side off, place in a bucket and run 3-4 quarts through it with motor running. It'll flush out al the old gung, chunks and stuff.

Refill and bleed, it'll be good as new.
