hi guys recently i swap my engine and i empty all fluids on my engine including power steering fluid , yesterday i filled the reservoir and turned the car on tried turning the steering wheel and when i let go the steering wheel the cap for the reservoir explote and spill fluid everywhere:mad: , i drain some of the fluid i put in and put the cap on again , and then again moved the steering wheel and i can hear pressure coming out of the reservoir

DOES THIS MEANS MY POWER STEERING PUMP IS BAD?

I never had this problem before , i was thinking that i my have air on the system but how can i take it out if that is the problem??

Thanks in advance for any help or answer.....:fistbump:

Well... I have heard of the need to bleed a PS system before. I have no idea how to do it. However... it seems like, if there's pressure to blow the cap off the reservoir; that the PS pump is working. Bleeding it is probably similar for most all cars. Search this site as well as YouTube for 'how to' videos.
