    hey guys im on Pump #4 in 2yrs. I just changed the pump again, bleed it good with all new fluid, but its still acting up. When I start the truck in the morning I can barely turn the wheel with out it squealing, and from what I have seen the squealing is from the Pump, the pulley stops turning. Like the pump locks up. also does this @ Full lock when its warmed up.

    Any idea on what could be the problem, and does anyone offer an after market pump for the 2.7L

    Installed new pump, took return hose off, poured new fluid in pushed old shit out.

    Belts not loose and went through 2qts flushing the system.

    The pump stops spinning when trying to turn.

    I think you need to inspect the rack. You may have metal in your system from the previos pump failures.
