Take your resevoir and stick a screw driver up the bottom of the large hole to break the screen, it will cause the pump to suck fluid with less resistance and less change of the pump trying to suck in air (if air reaches the seals, they will blow). I know that sounds rediculous, but you and i know that this is a rediculous issue and almost nothing works... just check the fluid quality often, i also put clamps that can be tightened on everything that does not have threaded ends. Sounds dumb, but hey im driving my car after this horrible experience

Well I definitely havenít spent that much. Rock auto has been replacing them but a bunch for all the shipping. Been doing the alignments with a peice of rope and a tape measure. But the air pushing through when I start the engine could be what is causing the blowouts

Currently I have an A/C Delco rack and acdelco pump that says gm on it but originally I had a a-1 Cardone rack and pump and didnít make a different but turning the wheel was improved compared to the feel of the reman

When you replaced the main seal did that cause anything else to break like o rings or something?

So i have an absolutely horrible feeling that every time i start the car its going to blow again. Just on start ups, just when its cold... what ive been doing so far is start it and immediately put it in gear lol... however, its driving and not blowing the seal. I have a feeling that when the fluid is cold and thick, it drains the reservoir too quick and that high idle start does this.. When that happens, its more likely to try and suck in air. When i get about 5-10 minutes down the road, its totally fine to relax, just start ups and when its cold was the issue. Iv driven 300 miles so far with the chrysler rack and my modification to the resevoir. Started it maybe 15-20 times since

Ive noticed that off brand remanufactured racks feel like they give me more power steering assist, however, while searching for hours and hours on forums where someone has had the same issue, i can ONLY find where someone has had low or no power steering assist (not blowing any seals at all).. im like "come on, i wish thats all i had to worry about".. the remanufactured off brand racks have a possibility of having slightly different tolerances, that being said- i felt more power steering assist, but kept blowing seals. Put the chrysler rack in and now my power steering is weaker (like when i first got this car a month ago), but it has not blown.. beginning to think the chrysler rack has tolerances that cannot be any other way
