Getting ready to put new power steering pump on, but forgot to flush system, and can't find a line to Drane, So with out damaging the new one, HOW do I flush the system...??


Disconnect the return line from the pump and let it hang into a drain container. Start the vehicle and turn the wheel, this will evacuate old fluid into container. Stop engine and fill the reservoir with new fluid and repeat, this will flush the system. Reconnect the return line to the pump and add new fluid. Start the vehicle and turn the wheel slowly until its easy to turn and you don't hear any noise from the pump; this evacuates any air from the system

I have a 1997 Chevrolet half ton and it keeps blowing power steering lines. I've replaced my pump and it still does it what should I do


Did you flush the power steering fluid before you installed the new pump? It sounds like something is blocking the line creating pressure that blows the line off

A local shop stated that I should change my power steering flush and my auto transmission fluid. I thought that they were the same thing. Are they 2 different fluids? If so, hw ofern should they be...


They are 2 different fluids for sure. As a rule most manufacturer's suggest transmission fluid and the filter should be changed every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. If you do mostly city driving it should be closer to 60,000. City driving is as hard on your transmission as towing trailers.
A power steering flush is a new one to me. I'm not saying that maybe you shouldn't but none of my manuals or experience suggest this is something that needs to be done. I'll admit that I don't have much info on new cars but perhaps a call to a dealer might be in order before you agree to it.
You should consider having the cooling system flushed though. This should be done every couple years because coolant loses its strength over time. They should replace the thermostat when they do it. Be adament about that,make sure it is replaced. If you've never had it flushed a "reverse flush" would be the better one to have done. This flushes against the natural flow of the coolant and will clean a lot more crud out than a normal flush.
Hope this helps.

HOW TO FLUSH POWER STEERING FLUID


Firstly, get the proper power steering fluid that is meant for your car (some cars use power steering fluid, some use ATF, while others use hydraulic fluid...be sure to use the right one meant for your vehicle!!).

Secondly, get a clean turkey baster, with the car off, **** out the old fluid using the turkey baster and dispose of properly. Fill fluid to proper fill line on power steering reservoir bottle. Then start the car and run it for a couple of minutes while turning the steering wheel gently lock to lock and centering the wheel before shutting it off.

Third, repeat second step until fluid being sucked out matches or is VERY close to the clean fluid being put in.

Fourthly, clean up any spilled fluid thoroughly, as it may cause stains and or a fire hazard.

Fifthly, you are all done....should take you about 10-15 minutes entirely to do a proper flush of the power steering system.

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.
