That hose does come close to the back plate of the vortech housing, they had to keep it loose until you were ready to slip on the reservior. I had the power steering res. zipped tied to the fan shroud until i was ready to complete the install.

I would maybe drain the unit and inspect the hoses where they push on to the fittings.

Years ago mercury outboards came out with a double wall fuel line. If you slipped it over a hose barb with a really sharp end you could cut the inner liner and creat a valve type flap inside the hose. Removal of the hose and everything would be perfect until you would poke at it with a pick. Catch the flap just right and you could fold it over. Heard lots of horor storys bout the fuel line when they came out. Damn near bought a freshly built 260hp power head by doing it myself. Didnt have ten minutes on it when I shut it down. Thank god for good ears would have cost our shop a forture.

Always seemed the 2 dollar part would cost me the trouble.

Not sure what the power steering hoses look like so just a thought.

There have been issues with the pumps on the LLTs but most have failed in the really cold weather. The only other thing it sounds like is a pinched hose but you should see that.

My Camaro V6 auto- A6 makes a typical power steering whine when it gets hot and it only has 9000 miles on it. It runs way too hot for me (200F), and no one makes a 160F thermostat.

Where do you read the temps on the power steering? yes any fluid will get hot, power steering is a high temp hydraulic blend oil. If it doesn't boil over that is really excessive.

Duke is referring to the coolant temperature, I believe.

The cooling system on my V-6 (2012) works differently, depending on whether the a/c is running. Mine does fans on at 180 and off at 170 when the a/c is engaged, but on/off at 220/210 when it is not. It is a high pressure cooling system and is designed to run that way. Do not drop in a 160 thermostat or you will probably confuse the computer as well as never reach designed operating temp.

The hose came with a coiled up wire inside to keep it from collapsing.

Siko,

We use a different hose now that does not need the spring inside. Please, if you guys need anything, hit me up on my cell.

Thanks,

Jesse!

Again sorry for the lag and thank you all so much for helping . So as of right now, they did figure out that the steering wheel pump's pressure was low. so right now its getting replaced and hopefully that should be the end of that ^_^

Hold the bus gus...

Everything steering wise was working normal prior to the s/c install correct?

When you picked up the car after install the power steering did not work correct?

I think there has to be some simple issue that was caused/created during install. Damaged or clogged hose. I would check output at the rack from the hoses. Remember the radiator has a power steering cooler. Check those as well along with flow in and out of the cooler.

That rack is not going to be a cheap part to throw at it which is what it sounds like they did when replacing the pump.

Where did they test pump pressure? If they tested it at the rack you could still have a blockage showing up as low pressure.

Was pump pressure good after install of the new pump?

Go back to the basics, belt routing, hose routing, is it kinked under pressure or folded over, fluid full, can you see the fluid circulating when running with p/s steering cap off. did they install the correct fitting to relocate the power steering resovoir. Please send pics, it may clear up so much.
