    Power steering pump

    My son's 00 Z28 has been leaking fluid from the PS pump. It's got 100k miles so I'm thinking maybe it's just wore out. So we replace the pump and reinstall the resevoir. Now keep in mind we didn't have any prob other than the leak.

    Well now it's binding up and turning the wheel in either direction is really tough.

    Now I'm a simple man, so I think the new pump is bad. Swap it out and we should be okay. Am I missing anything?

    Thanks.

    my guess would be that you installed a bad pump. if its hard to turn after you installed the new pump, that would be my guess. unless one of the lines got kinked during the r&r. maybe my reply will spark others interested in this who have more experience. good luck. let me know what happens.

    That's what I'm thinking, Semper Fi. Since we have a warranty on the part, all it's going to cost me is time.

    I'll let you know.

    Thanks.
