Well I tore of a return hose on a snow bank and ran the power steering fluid dry.
Had to keep the engine running until the tow truck arrived as it was -20C!!!
Anyway put the hose back on and refilled with fluid.... now the pump is making quite a noise and the fluid will foam up in the resevoir and eventually overflow.
My guess is the pump is fried as it was ran dry for quite some time but just want to get some second opinions before I fork out for a new one. Still not sure why it would cause the fluid to foam up though.
All help appreciated.
Hello and good day:
You guessed it.....You fried your P/S Pump...Remember your Serpentine belt was running around your pump while you were waiting for the Tow.
Is the sound from the pump like a low grinding??
good luck with this...any further help let us know.
