replaced the pump and it worked for about 5 minutes on my trip around the block then power steering pump started getting loud again and smelling hot then went silent and I lost steering assist again and the reservoir overflowed and splattered fluid out the top like the first time...........
a) the new pump blew up again! (heard horror stories of people going through 4-5 parts from autozone before they got a good one)
b) the reservoir is actually clogged somehow and caused the pump to blow up
c) I have no idea what the fack is going on
I removed mine, connected the input hose to the output in a closed loop, removed all of the extra pulleys and ran a shorter belt.
