    Question Power steering problem please help!

    I have a 1986 Dana ss 21 foot with inboard outboard set up. It has a Volvo 290 outdrive. For some reason my power steering fluid is building up so much pressure it is spraying out of the cap. If I drive it 10 minutes and check the power steering fluid level its almost dry and have to fill it back up. Anybody else have this issue?

    Has someone worked on the system and possibly plumbed some hoses backwards?

    Default power steering

    The only thing I can think of is the previous owner may have tampered with the pressure relief spring in the back of the pump. It is a Saginaw pump, is there a power steering rebuilding shop in your area. Check with them.
