you need to pop the hood WITHOUT opening the driver side door. check the level on the resevoir, it should be a few mil under the edge of the top. if it's like halfway you need to top it up halfway or something to prevent air getting in the system. when you open the driver side door the pump will start and if there is not enough oil in the resevoir it wil start sucking in air and kill the pump REAL fast. if there is enough in the resevoir you can open the door and put the ignition on to let the system to full pressure and then check the level, it should have a few mil of oil above the metal plate inside the resevoir, if not: fill up until you get about half a inch above the metal plate.
Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
