Power Steering Flush
Finished a power steering flush today myself, she has 117k on her. The first flush was done by the dealer at 60k. I think i paid them $80-$100. I won't do that again.
Keep in mind that I have about zero skills at turning wrenches. I used turkey baster to extract as much PS fluid out of the reservoir as I could. Then I added two ounces of Seafoam Trans Tune and topped her off with clean 5931 PS fluid. I used Valvoline as wally world had it for $12 a gallon. Ran the truck about 500 miles this week.
This morning, I used the turkey baster again but filled the reservoir with 100% Trans Tune then drove about twenty miles and drained all of the power steering fluid. Then I poured the rest of the Trans Tune into the reservoir and let it drain. Then I connected the hose back and added PS fluid until the system was full. I drained the fluid by removing the hose that connects the PS pump to the PS cooler under the front dumper. During the drain processes, I turned the steering wheel from side to side to push everything out (engine off).
I was surprised at how easy this was and it took about twenty minutes to perform. Total cost: $22.
