Similar problem as described above, except no problem with the pump.
I put a NEW Motorcraft rack in my Son's 99 Ranger tonight...........
I was told to disconnect the coil pack & turn the motor over while turnin the wheel side to side as someone made sure the resevoir stayed full, but it bucks like a freakin bronco!!
Idlin its fine, but as soon as you try to turn the wheel one way or the other, it jerks so bad it'll break your wrist, and you CAN'T TURN IT!?????
Any ideas would be GREATLY APPRECIATED and/or info on this vacuum pump thing mentioned!!!
Curious: If I removed the line from the cooler, put a hose from a container of PS fluid to the cooler, and used a siphon hose to draw the fluid through, would it eliminate the air within the system???
