Forgot a little story about a foolish guy in a hurry to drive his truck.
When I first pulled out of the garage, the power steering pump was howling pretty loud. With out turning off the engine, I popped the top. Dry. Topped it off, still running, and it quieted down. "Good," I think. Then I read the bottle! !@#$*^*(#^^&@! BRAKE FLUID! Off to the internet. No, they are not compatible.
I disconnected the return line into a 5 gallon bucket, jacked the front tires off the ground and, without starting the engine, manually pumped 3 quarts of new PS fluid through by the following method:
1) Top off reservoir.
2) Steer full left.
3) Top off reservoir.
4) Steer full right.
5) Repeat for half an hour.
So far so good. Only time will tell.
