I didn't bleed my p/s system
Just changed my p/s high pressure hose this morning, was riding fine all day until about 10 mind ago, steering became extremely difficult n when I popped the hood, fluid looked as if sprayed everywhere.. Is it possible this happen b/c I didn't bleed it? N yes the o rings were replaced when I installed the new one, please help!

Re: I didn't bleed my p/s system
Now you need to find out if you have ruptured any lines and replace them, this includes any seals as well, you also need to check the rack to see if there is a leak there too. Oh, and you might want to check the PS pump too.
It pays to ask questions / check things - even if the question seems stupid. Does not matter how stupid the question is.
Do it right the first time, saves you a headache later on.

Ok the u very much, I guess in a way I did bleed it somewhat... I did turn the wheels as mentioned but not n the air b/c it was on car ramps... I also didn't unhook the return line like the instructions said on the acdelco package but the i just read the Cadillac manual n it doesn't mention that step when bleeding... I just read to not let the reservoir get low when bleeding... I did it with cap on a when left to right a couple times...
