1958 Buick Century Power steering Pump Issue


Recommended Posts


I rebuilt the power steering pump in my 58 Buick and assembled it back in the car, but do not have any power steering. Does the pump need to be bleed in a special way?


The shop manual does not list this particular issue. Did I make a mistake in reassembling the pump? Any thoughts of where I should look first?


Any help is appreciated.


Thank You

I'm no expert but it might have some air in it still.

When mine leaks down after awhile it growls to let me know I need to top it up.

Even then I have to turn both left and right fully to get the fluid through and the air out.

Not sure if this helps or not.

I'm sure others will chime in.

Here goes just like cable news:  "I think, I don't think"...

Take it apart again and closely follow the service manual.

Maybe it was taken out of service because it was inoperable.

I thought it was a good idea to rebuild a a junk dynaflow and just quickly swap the original.  i ended up pulling it 3 times and still had to use the original after a rebuild.
