You have more stuff in the system than just a pump. You have a steering rack that has valves in it that could be sticking. You may have a variable assist valve if you are equipped with variable assist steering. You have lines and linkages that could a have a problem. If you installed the pump, but did not make sure the pressure valve was not in place on the high pressure line, you may have a problem there.

Does a Chevy Metro 2000 have power steering and if so where is it?

some metros dont have power steering .if you dont see a p.s pump being driven by a belt in front of engine you have no power steering If your tires are properly inflated, you can usually tell without opening the hood if the car has power steering or not by how much muscle you have to put into a turn on the steering wheel, unless you're like my dad. He owned a 1972 Datsun truck, and he claimed that it had power steering. His term for power steering is "It takes all the power you got just to steer it." My dad's 2001 Chevy Metro has no power steering, and is bare bones package. Just be careful that if your car does not have power steering, to remember that there are cars that do, and keep that in mind while you are going around a curve with that other car...
