Power steering question/trouble??...

96' chevy pick up, serpentine belt, my buddy replaced the power steering line and and now the power assist only works at high RPM... I figured the belt was slipping or perhaps an air lock/bubble ??..?? thanks...

Re: Power steering question/trouble??...

it kinda sounds like you fired it up without bleeding the system and "frothed" the fluid.
Let it sit over night so the bubbles can pop, then with the engine off, turn it lock to lock 5 or 6 times, then check the fluid and give it a try.

Thanks Jim, it's his truck so I will let him know to give that a try.. I did ask if there was "tiny bubbles" (no relation to Don ) in the fluid and he said yes, so... Thanks again...
