power steering

I had my mechanic put a new power steering hose on,drive belt,leads and clean the isc.Now when i turn the steering wheel ,it sounds like a hummming ,kinda werring noise,sounds like the pump and it feels like the revs are too high.The revs go down to where they should ,but take a bit longer.Now is this normal after the work thats been done or has the mechanic stuffed up.Thanks guys.

Re: power steering

Sounds like air in system, check level.Turn steering wheel from lock to lock to let the air escape..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: power steering

I am still getting the werring noise ,since ive had the work done.Its still slightly there when i turn the steering wheel and i can hear it in the revs at idle.The power steering should be bled by now.My mechanic said maybe it because its got a new hose.Is there a proper way to bleed the power steering or should i change the fluid .He didnt when putting on the new hose.Just topped it up .Its starting to bug me now.thanks.

Re: power steering

Did he fit correct hose? They have inner pipe to prevent hammer/ surging ????

Re: power steering

In my AU, every time i turn car quickly (eg racing) or go on full lock and back off it sounds like a blow valve (dont laugh it does), its just too much pressure in the system

Re: power steering

Its not losing a drop of fluid.Its 65000 ks old or could the noise be the new leads top gun 8mm because the werring is in the revs.
