Louis; Could be a couple of things. Are you absolutely sure you are using the correct type of fluid? Depending on the year, it could use Hy-trans or stright hyd. fluid. The other possibles require removing the pump. Once done, check the pump inlet for restriction, I once found part of a shop rag in the inlet of a D-14. After so long it would get sucked up by the pump a block the inlet causing the hyd. to work very slowly or not at all. Then check the pump for worn gears or worse yet, a badly worn or corroded pump housing. Good Luck. John W.

Thanks John! I'm going by the AC service manual on the oil but I'll check it through again. Your idea about pickup blockage may be a good place to look for trouble so I guess the pump is going to come off and check all that out.
