Power Steering Pump: Testing and Inspection

Power Steering Oil Pump: On-Vehicle Inspection and Service

CHECKING RELIEF OIL PRESSURE

CAUTION:
Before starting work, confirm that the belt tension is within specification. 

1) Connect the Tool between the power steering oil pump discharge connector and the high pressure hose, then bleed the air from the hydraulic

circuit. 

2) Start the engine. Run the engine until the power steering fluid temperature reaches 50 degrees - 80 degrees C (122 degrees - 176 degrees F).

CAUTION:
^

Warm up the engine with the shut-off valve fully opened. If the engine is started with the shutoff valve closed, fluid pressure in the
power steering oil pump increases to maximum pressure. This will raise fluid temperature excessively.

^

Do not contact the belt with the hose while the engine is running.
