    I can't figure out what is wrong with my pump. In the morning when i go out and drive the car the steering is sorta smooth but after about 2 minutes of driving the steering is stiff and its like not having any power steering at all. Now i have flushed the system out several times and nothing. The pully turns very nicely but its like the fluid isn't flowing. Could i have a clog somewhere in my line? Bad pump? What's the deal

    The symptoms i have are just about what you had minus the leaking. So i am looking at a bad pump?

    YEP. I flushed my system many times, even replaced all the hoses . everything seemed okay, untill all the replacements had problems.
    and remember, you dont have to remove the bracket. the three bolts holding the pump will back out enought before they hit whats behind them to remover the pump. a send of open end ratchet wrenches it a must, without a doubt. and a gear puller for the pully.(dont lose the key, but the new pumps all came with one)
    you should be able to do it all in about 2 hours, tops
