if you're up this way again, stop by the house and I'll take a look at it. I've got a spare pump or two in the garage if yours is screwed.
But.. Normally if there is fluid in the res that means there is fluid in the rack.
Your belt still good?
Your flex joint still rotating nicely(with front end lifted there will still be resistance when you turn the wheel)?
Any fluid spots under the car?
Ever changed the filter?
