No that didn't work

Dear customer I am concerned about what filling the steering fluid reservoir the problem has not been corrected means and that there are problems in the power steering system may be that the pump has problems the proper pressure for proper operation this means that the pump may be in need of repair, it may also be damage to the steering box as the internal seals of the broken box this makes the internal pressure is not retained and the steering is very hard.

It is good to check for steering fluid leaks.

The advantage is that both the pump and the steering box can be rebuilt, which makes repairing this type of problem less expensive.
