The last time I had my car serviced, the mechanic told me that while it wasn’t a pressing issue, my power steering pump was starting to go. Lo and behold, it’s that time. I started to notice that while idling I hear a dry, raspy sound coming from the engine. I left the car on, opened the hood, and it’s definitely something spun by the belt. I’m 99% sure it’s the power steering pump, so I’m going to replace it. That said, can anyone offer any words of caution before I embark? Furthermore, do I need to “bleed” the lines? How does one go about doing that, anyhow?
I’m somewhat mechanically inclined. I’d just really hate to get in over my head on this.
