Power srering fluid turned clay color


Yes, this is a problem. The clear power steering fluid is a mineral oil base and the red Lucas additive is petroleum base. Your car uses the red petroleum base, which is actually Dexron ATF (automatic transmission fluid). Lucas is great stuff, the person at the parts store just doesn't know their stuff. You need to flush the system to save your pump from going out very prematurely.

Stering ok to right no power stering turing to the left checked fluis fluid low toped off fluid no assist when turing to left after topping off fluid.


depending on how low it was, you may have air in the system and it may need bleeding. start it up and turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold a couple of seconds then turn all the way to the left and hold 2 seconds. do this several times and see if that helps.

Power Steering Fluid Filling & Bleeding
  1. Repair the power steering system.
  2. Turn the engine OFF.
  3. Raise the vehicle so the front wheels are off the ground.
  4. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left.
  5. Fill the power steering fluid reservoir to the FULL/COLD level and leave the cap off.
  6. Have an assistant watch the fluid in the reservoir while you turn the steering wheel fully to the right and fully to the left at least 20 times. NOTE: On systems with long return lines or fluid coolers, turn the steering wheel from lock to lock at least 40 times.
  7. Add fluid as needed to keep the fluid level at the FULL/COLD level.
  8. Install the reservoir cap and start the engine.
  9. Center the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  10. Run the engine for about 2 minutes.
  11. Turn the steering wheel in both directions and verify correct power steering operation.

Car stering wheel is hard to turn left or right


your power steering pump has a cap on it.you have cold mark and hot mark.when car is cold engine not running.when you remove power steering cap it should be on cold mark.if not add until you get to cold mark on cap stick..dont over fill or you blow the seal.now when engine is hot been running.turn off car check.power steering cap should read full hot.mean level is correct.when you first check power steering fluid and it was real real low.you got a leaking high pressure hose.or power steering pump seal is leaking.if all check out good.your problem could be low tire pressure.worn ball joints.and tie rod ends.rack and pinion steering gear binding.

check power steering fluid if real real low you have a leak at hoses or pump seals.if all is good check for low tires and lack of lubrication to at ball joints and tie rod ends. if all is good you have power steering pump failure.

Sounds like a hamster in a wheel


After about 3 - 4 years, a powersteering pump accumulates a lot of metal specs, once they start building up, your pump starts choking, and wont be able to let the fluid flow through and basically fry itself. My advice, have a shop, drain and flush your power steering pump / fluid. You can even do it yourself, but it requires 2 people; Lift front end up, on jacks followed by stands, unhook the powersteering pump line, turn car on, and have your friend, mom, father w.e turn the wheel from left to right, let the old fluid drain out, one old fluid is out, pour NEW powersteering fluid into the pump, you will need to let it flow through, so it flushes itself out. Remember to put a large pan underneath where the pump is so you dont get fluid everywhere, be prepared to buy at least 3 - 4 bottles of fluid. Let 2 bottles run through, then put the pump line back on and fill 'er up.

Then your done, drive and see.
