Is there a video or tutorial on flushing the power steering fluid? Mine is almost dark as oil and needs to be flushed and have new fluid added. Also, what fluid do you recommend?
A DIY power steering flush is one of the biggest money-savers. It's easy and you don't need special tools. If you had nothing at all tool-wise, you could get away with only a $5 set of pliers. A PSF flush was actually the first maintenance thing I've done to a vehicle other than oil changes. It sounds complicated which is why automotive shops can charge so much. I don't want to bash shops and how they make money because I might be working at Midas this summer... If a place only charges $20 for an oil change, the money has to come somewhere else. The Midas manager said that brakes are a big part of their profit, I thought it would be exhaust.Thanks you all! I had contacted Midas and asked for an estimate and they wanted $79 total. I am going to do it myself. I have done everything else myself and it makes me feel a sense of accomplishment. I have had help with a lift, but have done some other things to it that I haven't done before which makes it fun!
