07 JK 3.8, shredded serp belt, now PS issues
07 JK, 6spd, Sahara, 93k. I've only put a few thousand miles on it since buying it.
Last week my alternator seized and destroyed the serp belt.
As I was pulling into a parking lot to survey the damage, the PS was making a lot of whining noise.
I parked it, figured out the problem, got the seized alt replaced, got it running again...and now PS is acting up.
It was whiny for the short drive after the alt repair, and when parked, it slowly lost all the ps fluid over the period of few days, engine never started during that time.
I took off the PS reservoir, filled it with water, and turned it upside down. The cap is leaking significantly. I took off the low pressure line, it looks ok, I guess.
Anyway, I figure since it was run low on fluid, and I have all these messy lines off the vehicle, I may as well replace all the lines and the pump so I don't have to do this again.
Should I upgrade to a better PS reservoir, lines, pump?
Anyone get rid of PS on a JK?
Thanks in advance.
