    I replace my power steering hoses on a 98 2500 chevy van and my power steering is almost non exhistant. The resivour is full and it has a single feed line from the resivour to the ps pump.
    Do I have to bleed the lines some how?

    Welcome to Plowsite :waving:

    You will need to crank the wheels a few times from side to side,with the engine running to help get the air out.Top up the fluid,as it will go down.

    If that doesn't work,then you have another problem,like a bad pump,plugged or kinked line,broken belt,or a damaged steering gear.
