p/s fld flush (something for us newbee's)

(This is for us newbee's so if your a old salt juz hit the back button)

I dont know why I didnt try this sooner-http://www.superdutypsd.com/power_steering_flush.php

Super easy and yet another thing that I wonder why didnt the first owner ever do this. The whole job was done for under $20, from what my son sais the steering seem's to be smoother and this is one of those you cant screw up jobs. So make sure your kids is their with ya,a chance to look like you know something if you know what I mean.
Ill probably change it out again after the winter with some fancy stuff and forget about it (like the first owner).
Oh yea and no I didnt put the link above together,not trying to get credit for it. Juz thought I'd bring it to the new guys attention out their. This is a job that dosnt seem to get talked about to much!

That's the site I used when I did mine last year. Such an easy procedure. I don't think my fluid had ever been changed.

Did you ever do a follow up flush on your truck? I have read that you should do a second flush a short time later to reeley get the trash out.

I'm doing a power steering flush this week. I'm gonna install a Magnefine in-line filter to the inlet to the power steering cooler after the new fluid is installed. I know this will introduce some air to the system when I cut the line & install the filter. Is this an issue?

Thanks for any help.

Aloha...

No, as far as I know to remove are just to left lock to right lock a few times to purge the system.

and that flush I dont think will work on an 06 will it?

I didnt think the 06 had the same system.. Maybe ti was the 7.3 I was thinking of.

I would also guess that this is what I need?

Thumbs up

Oh, it worked to perfection. I did it today, as I had time and the needed fluid etc. Took all of 15 minutes or so and I pushed >3 qts of new fluid through until new, red, clean fluid ran out. Probably the easiest maintenance I've ever done on the beast.
