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.

*tear* well after trying to fix it for the past couple of weeks.. I have decided to uninstall it. I've taken it everywhere and nothing. We have removed it 3 times and checked everything but absolutely nothing works out. I just want to return it but I havent heard anything from IPF in weeks. I don't want to sell it because I don't want anyone else to deal with this problem :/
