You need to drain the power steering, it won't be working fine if u don't correct it now. You must remove one of the hoses, start the vehicle while someone watches the flow of fluid, as soon as it stops draining, turn off the car, reconnect the hose, and fill w/ the proper fluid. To get the air out of the lines, (after refilling to cold mark),start car, turn wheels back and forth several times, recheck level, repeat if necessary countrycurt0

You may not have one. Just remove the bottom hose, or remove the engine drain plug put a garden hose in your radiator idle the engine while adding water this will flush your whole system. let the car cool replace engine plug add your antifreeze and your set.

it is probably in your steering rack and pinion, if you have rack on your truack otherwise it is in the steering box, you would be surprised to know how many time the main shaft gets twisted in an accident then causes steering problems

Accidently poured brake fluid into power steering reservoir


You'll need to bleed the system from the steering box, as you would the brake lines, by turning the steering from lock to lock repeatedly. If there's no air in the system there is a good chance its the steering pump causing the problem.

Accidently poured brake fluid in power steering reservoir


You have permanently damaged the seals in the system. Pump, hoses and rack will need to be replaced eventually. Drive it till it leaks.

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

I accidently put automatic trans fluid in my power steering reserviour


Transmission fluid and power steering fluid are the one in the same. They are both hydraulic fluid. Only the red dye. Your vehicle will operate fine on transmission fluid in the power steering pump. Just don;t put power steering fluid in your transmission

Power steering gushed out from under car on the


Sounds like one of your power steering lines burst from pressure, or the pump itself went/is going bad, you need to take it into the nearest repair shop and have them repair/replace it.

And I highly suggest you do not drive the vehicle till it is fixed as that's an easy way to cause an accident.
