ATF Dexron II or III (i used a little more than 2 quarts)
2-5ft of 3/8 inch vacuum line
Barb coupler (again 3/8 will work fine)
Some garbage bags
1 ) Put the front wheels on the garbage bags. This will reduce stress on the steering system while doing the flush.
2 ) Remove cap from power steering fluid reservior and siphon as much fluid out as you can.
3 ) Disconnect the return line from the reservior (smaller hose) and hook it into your extension tubing, running it to a bucket or empty soda bottle, etc. (tip - unbolt the coolant reservior and move it up and out of your way)
4 ) Plug the now exposed return hole in the reservior. A small wad of ATF soaked paper towel will work in a pinch.
5 ) Line the area surrounding the reservior with lots of towels to soak up stray fluid.
6 ) Fill the reservior with fresh fluid.
7 ) Have your friend start the car and turn the steering wheel lock to lock. IMPORTANT: your job is to keep the reservior filled with fresh fluid. Shut down when the fluid coming out is the same color as the fluid going in.
8 ) Remove the plug from the reservior return hole and quickly re-attach the return line (here you will understand why we line the area with towels)
9 ) Check your levels, start the car up, turn the wheel to purge any air that may have entered the system, re-check the levels, add more fluid if needed, drive around for a few minutes, check levels again.
10 ) Have a cold one.
