98 F-150 power steering

4 posts in this topic

Just had the head gasket replaced. He replaced the power steering pump as well and now it constantly whines. I was told to drive it for a while before worrying about it. I have put about 100 miles on it now and it hasn't gotten any better. Any suggestions on to fix this?

If there was any air in the system, as they were hoping, it should have been out already. Since they installed the part, I would bring it back to them for warranty purposes. Make sure they put in the correct fluid, It should take mercon v. If it isnt quiet dont let them tell you that its as good as it gets. I have run into some problems with after market pumps being noisey. If it wasnt an oe pump, they may need to upgrade to oe.

I'd bet its an aftermarket pump also.

I would say this also! At dealership what tech declines a "service part warranty" on a repair like this grin.gif

Air does take a while in these to work its self out. If it was a dealership, you will have a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty with the repair. That’s lock, stock and barrel. No cost to you. Noise or the pump locks up, it’s covered. Aftermarket it would very!

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
