Power Steering unit just started leaking. Checked the reservoir and it was close to empty and foamy. Topped off tank but am concerned that air might have gotten into rack?

If so, will the air work it's way back out and do I face any serious damage?

Thanks.

Running the pump dry is not good ... but everything else is little concern. So if you keep the reservoir full, the bubbles will work themselves out and all should be well. Even though my glove box manual says the fluid should be mfgr'd by "Pincushion" (Thanks Volvo, for all the quality and the confusion!), it is actually to be "Pentosin CHF11S" avail at O'Reilly's Auto. They prob will have to order. Approx $25 per liter.
