After I repaired the slow leak in the tubing below my power steering reservoir it turned out that the power steering pump in my 9000 CDE was shot. Probably because I drove it empty. The pump would not hold fluid. I now have about a gallon of power steering fluid on the floor of my garage. I could watch the fluid poring out as I poured it in the reservoir. So I took the car to my local indie and he took the pump out and confirmed that it was no good. He did not want to install a new pump without a pulley on it, so I found one from PartsGeek for $163.00. The pump arrived yesterday and my indie installed it this morning. WOW, does the car steer nice now. I can turn the wheel so easily!
So to my mechanic I say - Job well done! A little more expensive than I could wish but I love it!
