So, as I was getting a new set of tires installed on my RR the other day, the tire store, which also happens to do general maintenance service, decided to give me a complimentary checkup.

I was told that everything looked OK w/ the exception of the valve cover leak and the dirtiness of the power steering fluid. Now, I knew that the valve cover was leaking a bit, like any other RRs, but until now didn't even cross my mind to flush the power steering fluid.

So, with regards to the power steering fluid, is there a recommended way to do the flush? I was thinking about doing the turkey baster method of replacing most of the fluid in the resevoir w/ new fluid. Atleast, my thinking is that doing so is gonna get the overall ph level down.

Hey, thanks for the input about the Dexron III. Though getting my hands on straight-forward Dexron IIIs might be difficult as most auto shops around here has Dexron IV or, some mixture that's for extended mile vehicles and/or domestic vehicles w/ specs requiring Dexron IIIs or better-But doesn't exactly say that it's Dexron IIIs.

BTW, was there supposed to be a link in your text? I was curious about the article that you're talking about.

Thanks for the input, guys.

Now, all I need to find is Dexron III and a helper who's willing to work for free or maybe a round of beer.

Yeah, I haven't tried the online route yet for the fluid to be honest, but from local brick&mortar shops like Napa, Pepboys, Autozone, etc, straight-forward Dexron IIIs is pretty much impossible to find.
