Remanufactured; Without Reservoir
Cardone's Remanufacturing Process:
  • Units are re-built with 100% new O-rings and premium-grade Viton® seals to prevent leaks. Viton® does not break down at high temperatures like conventional seal material
  • Critical components (campacs, spool valves, etc.) are triple-tested to ensure product reliability
  • Shafts are surfaced to precise specifications to eliminate premature seal wear and extend pump life
  • Unit is computer tested to measure pressure, bypass, fluid flow, valve operation, steering effort and noise
Installation Tips
  • Replace Power Steering Pressure and Return Hoses when replacing the power steering pump. Steering hoses can degrade internally and cause contamination in the power steering system, which can damage the new power steering pump
  • Where applicable, replace the Power Steering Reservoir or clean the internal filter
  • Completely flush the system with an OE approved Power Steering Fluid prior to installation (the correct type of fluid is noted on the reservoir cap or in your owner's manual). Flushing the system is critical to prevent system contamination and failure
  • Consider replacing the Belt (found in the Belt Drive category). Modern belts wear gradually and become less efficient, which can put strain on the Power Steering Pump and other belt driven components
  • Install the pump and all supplied o-ring seals according to installation instructions, to prevent leaking
  • Consider installing a Power Steering Filter on the Power Steering Return Hose to prevent system contamination and extend the life of the power steering components
  • A replacement Power Steering Pump can whine or make noise until air is purged from the fluid. Bleed the system during installation to prevent noise and extend the life of the steering components
