Not really needed unless you have had a major failure with either system...its a gimick alot of shops use to make quick money with uneeded repairs

Brake fluid gets changed every 2 years-- on all your
vehicles.

Power Steering & Transmission every 3 years

NEVER Flush a Transmission--just drop pan & refill

I would not use a Just Brakes--- Chain Store Place

Use a local shop that has been there with same
owner for 30 years

SOURCE: Lost all power steering fluid and brakes

Hi Salmancasmi,
On vehicles with a hydraulic booster you will find that the power steering pump supplies fluid through bot the steering gear box and the hydraulic booster.
Just a visual inspection of the system should point you to the part that failed, most likely a hose. These can be obtained through your local parts store or dealership.
Locate and replace the failed part, refill the reservoir with power steering fluid. With the front of the truck on jack stands, start the truck and turn the steering wheel from full left to full right several times while pumping the brakes. This will remove the air from the system. Recheck for leaks and fluid level and you'll be on your way.
Hope that helps, good luck.

SOURCE: Maintenance Toyota Solara 2000

I have kept my cars running for a long time (250k+) by changing fluids as u are doing, and fixing things right away, not letting them develop into bigger problems, so u are destined to have your car for a long time! Many of the maintenance items u list are typically NEVER done by anyone, but they should be. Here's what I recommend from many years of maintaining my cars:
ps flush-50k or 5 yrs
brake fluid flush- every time u have brakes replaced.
Rad.drain, flush, fill -new coolant is said to be good for life of car, I would flush and refill 50/50 coolant water mix every 4 years.
Fuel Injection- I'll get flak over this, but I never do anything to the system, just change your fuel filter every 2 years, or 20k
Trans Flush-don't have it done if they '**** out' the fluid from the dipstick tube. I consider that method a waste. Have the pan removed to drain it, and replace the trans filter if equipped w/ one (u can't change the filter if u **** the fluid out of the dipstick.) Also, some vehicles have a magnet on the bottom of the trans. pan, which collects fine shavings from normal wear and tear (and pieces of metal from a trans. about to go bad). U need to drop the pan to clean this crud off the magnet.
oil and filter (good quality filter-cheap junky ones are much lighter than a quality one) every 3k or twice a year whichever comes 1st
I'll add: air filter- every 20k or once a year
check tire air pressure once a month, rotate tires for even wear (every 5k miles) Can I buy your well maintained car when u r ready to sell it?

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

SOURCE: oil in water header tank.

oil in header tank indicates a blown head gasket this could also explain the hunting.The brakes might just need bleeding,while this is done you can check for fluid leaks.Shakey steering at a certain speed is wheel balancing,this is quite cheap to fix but it must be done at a tyre fitting garage.hope this helps,good luck.

2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

How much does it cost to have a brake flush and power steering flush for a 2004 f150 FX4 truck


prices on services will vary from town to town, state, to state, country to country. It would be impossible to give you an accurate estimate for the repairs based on the area you live in. Your best bet is to call your local service facilities, whether they be dealer or independent and find out what they charge.

For my area $89 each is pretty average.

Brakes


It could be your power steering pump not building pressure in your brake booster or your master cylinder which is where your fliud goes. Try flushing the system and check for leaks and restrictions

Fuel injector flush how hard is it to do it yourself? That and power steering and brake flsuh. 2005 Avalance V-8


depending on how bad the injectors are you can put some Lucas fuel treatment in your gas tank and it will clean them up for you. I use it every other fill up and have had no problems. My avalanche has 88,000 miles and I have never had injector problems. The power steering flush and brake flush you will need a vacuum pump.

Brakes: Locate the bleeder valve on each caliper and hook up your vacuum pump to it and pump it 4-5 times. Make sure your fluid reservoir is full. Put clean fluid in reservoir as needed. Repeat this again. ON bake brakes you will want to give it a few more pumps than the front because they are farther away from the master cylinder. You will need 2 of the small bottles of brake fluid or 1 large bottle. Sorry, I dont remember the oz. on each size.

Power steering: place a hose into the reservoir and pump all fluid out. Turn wheels all the way both ways and repeat twice. You will need several courts of power steering fluid.

What is required in the service of a 3.0l subaru liberty at 100000kms?


your owners manual will tell you exactly. usually all filters should be changed (oil, air, auto transmission if equipped, fuel, cabin air etc) as well as spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor if equipped, check the belts and hoses as well as the charging system. All fluid levels should be checked and topped off. Check your tire p.s.i. as well.

Do it yourself brake and power steering fluid flushing/change


As you are bleeding the brakes, start w/the furthest line (right rear), have someone add fluid at the same time. Do right rear, left rear, right front, left front until the fluid runs clear. Power steering, disconnect the low pressure hose to drain the canister. Refill with fluid. Repeat procedure, until fluid is clean.
