You can use a suction pump you can pick up from the auto parts store. Remove what you can with the pump and install fresh fluid. Recheck daily and follow this procedure until the fluid has cleared up. There are cleaners, but I don't recommend any as they sometimes have an adverse affect on the seals. This is a 'do it yourself' procedure. If you want it done faster, you'll have to go to an automotive repair shop that can completely exchange the fluid for you.

In that case then the fluid is too thick of a viscosity to run through the lines. In some cases you can clean it out otherwise install a new one. must pull pump to clean out.

Spark Plug - Removal & Installation

Remove the spark plugs and wires one at a time to avoid confusion and incorrect wiring during installation.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and if the vehicle has been run recently, allow the engine to thoroughly cool.
  2. On engines equipped with spark plugs, carefully twist the spark plug wire boot to loosen it, then pull upward and remove the boot from the plug. Be sure to pull on the boot and not on the wire, otherwise the connector located inside the boot may become separated.
  3. On engines with coil-over-plug ignition, remove the ignition coil for access to the spark plug. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Engine Electrical, Ignition Coil.
  4. Using compressed air, blow any water or debris from the spark plug well to assure that no harmful contaminants are allowed to enter the combustion chamber when the spark plug is removed. If compressed air is not available, use a rag or a brush to clean the area.
Remove the spark plugs when the engine is cold, if possible, to prevent damage to the threads. If removal of the plugs is difficult, apply a few drops of penetrating oil or silicone spray to the area around the base of the plug, and allow it a few minutes to work.
  1. Using a spark plug socket that is equipped with a rubber insert to properly hold the plug, turn the spark plug counterclockwise to loosen and remove the spark plug from the bore.
WARNING It is recommended that you NOT use a flexible extension on the socket. Use of a flexible extension may allow a shear force to be applied to the plug. A shear force could break the plug off in the cylinder head, leading to costly and frustrating repairs.
To install:
  1. Inspect the spark plug boot for tears or damage. If a damaged boot is found, the spark plug wire must be replaced.
  2. Using a wire feeler gauge, check and adjust the spark plug gap. When using a gauge, the proper size should pass between the electrodes with a slight drag. The next larger size should not be able to pass while the next smaller size should pass freely.
  3. Carefully thread the plug into the bore by hand. If resistance is felt before the plug is almost completely threaded, back the plug out and begin threading again. In small to reach areas, an old spark plug wire and boot or a short length of rubber hose, placed on the spark plug, could be used as a threading tool. The boot will hold the plug while you twist the end of the wire and the wire is supple enough to twist before it would allow the plug to cross-thread.
WARNING Do NOT use the spark plug socket to thread the plugs. Always carefully thread the plug by hand or using an old plug wire to prevent the possibility of cross-threading and damaging the cylinder head bore. Remember, your truck has aluminum cylinder heads and the spark plug threads in the head are easily damaged.
  1. Carefully tighten the spark plug. If the plug you are installing is equipped with a crush washer, seat the plug, then tighten about 1 / 4 turn to crush the washer. If you are installing a tapered seat plug, tighten the plug to 1115 ft. lbs. (1520 Nm).
  2. If equipped with coil-over-plug ignition, install the ignition coil assembly(ies).
  3. If equipped with spark plugs, apply a small amount of silicone dielectric compound to the end of the spark plug lead or inside the spark plug boot to prevent sticking, then install the boot to the spark plug and push until it clicks into place. The click may be felt or heard, then gently pull back on the boot to assure proper contact.

I hope help you. Good luck.

My 2001 toyota tacoma is squealing nonstop and i think the powersteering pump is bad is this correct


I'm inclined to believe that your power steering pump is low on fluid or bad.

Squealing can come from any belt slipping or an accessory like the power steering pump being worn out.

Good luck, to you.
