    With fluid full, turn the steering wheel back and forth 4 or 5 times to bleed air out. Any leak in the system can continue to suck air in though. Also, check belt tension. If belt is slipping, that will create the same symptom as a failing pump. If all of that is ruled out, it's probably a bad pump.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
