Re: Resealed Pump Noise

Did you do the full-lock to full-lock back and forth a few times to purge 
the air from the system?  Then check fluid level and top-off if reqd?  What 
kind of "strange noise" exactly?

I've never felt the need to feel the PS pump so dunno if the temp is good 
or bad.  But you now have a new spare pump, right?  ;-)
