Little food for thought. If you replace your power steering pump, and it's not working correctly, and you have spent 4+ trying to bleed out air bubbles.

GET NEW HOSE CLAMPS!!!!

That solved my problem after endless hours of bleeding the system and changing the fluid 3+ times.

I know right lol. Biggest freaking headache. All because of 1 stupid clamp.

FML.

Made me appreciate power steering so much. Our cars are near impossible to turn without that ****.
