    easiest way to drain the ps fluid is to go under the car and disconnect the return line. Throw a pan underneath and direct the little rubber hose to it. turn on the car and watch the fluid come out. Turn car off, reconnect, fill with dex, turn wheel, start car, recheck fluid, have a nice day.


    I know this is old but, eh

    So, just cleaned out the PS pump, res and was curious if anyone knew of a rebuild kit for these? like new o-rings and all? without going to the dealer for them, since they are mm sizes which are obviously less common...

    I'm gonna have to change mine soon. I was hoping I could just get a brass barbed nipple and connect one end to the return line, and the other to a clear plastic hose to stick in a container, start the car and have someone turn the wheel lock to lock while adding the Dexron.....would this method work?

    Years later (note I did this post 7+ years ago):

    - The screen has to be clean. Period. What my post was about. Gunk on the filter screen.
    - Dump the fluid out of the rack at the bottom of the PS rack. Slowly turn the steering wheel after the rack hoses are disconnected (otherwise mess), then refill with any non-synthethic Dextron. Red is good. Yellow is bad. Brown is dangerous.

    We are constantly drilled on using the search feature here, so rather than starting a new thread I found it just as easy to ask my question here, since I already took the time to conduct the search...was just wondering if it will work.

    Squeal like a pig. Happiness is a clean screen. Power steering questions are coming up again and I thought bumping this thread might make it easier to find - good info regarding power steering and it makes it look like Chris might still be around.
