Air in power steering

I put a new power steering pump on my 95 VTEC and I need to purge out the air in the system. How do I do this. Also I took off the air inlet on the throttle body and now the tach doesn't work how does this happen?

Easy. Turn the steering wheel from left lock to right lock, keeping the res full of ps fluid. Could take as much as 20 cycles back and fourth. Just keep going till you don't see any more bubbles coming out

Edit: with car off. If it is running you could burn up the pump. When I did my trucks ps, I jacked up one side so only one wheel was on the pavement and it made it easy.

So weird, when I replaced my power steering pump I took the old one off and put the new one on, started it up and all is well.

Re: Air in power steering

you can work the fluid in with the engine off but you will never get all the air out without letting it run. once you have it running, you will have to turn the wheel several times. as long as the fluid in the reservoir is bubbly or frothy, there is still air in the system. you may have to leave it running for a fairly long time. sometimes its quick and other times its not.
