Well, the grOan was back this morning ~15 f. It was similar to before.

Now I realize that I didn't rev at all. So since I am taking it in for oil/ATF drain/fill I'll just have my guy flush it properly.

So now my question is, how long does a pump last with air in the system ? I am aware of cavitation that can occur with pumps but not sure if that is possible in this application. Is it just annoying groaning or is it something that can damage the pump?

Just turn the wheel from lock to lock 4 or 5 times and it will bleed out the air.

I am not convinced thats without consequences. It will undergo excessive wear during that time and those wear contaminants are now in the fresh fluid. Its probably the equivalent of wear occuring over several thousand miles under normal operation with fluid.

And this happens not only while draining the old fluid but when filling up the new fluid too (step 6). The reservoir will run dry and you keep adding new fluid until the whole system is full.

Does anyone know if the '01 psf reservoir had a filter ?

I have an 04 w 200,000 miles

Steering was sticky when driving. I replaced most of the fluid using the turkey baster method several times over. The steering is now functioning like new when warm, but a new problem developed. On a cold morning, lots of whine from the PS system.

I think my reservoir filter is clogged and the new fluid is more viscous than the thin, black worn out stuff I extracted when changing the fluid. I'm going to either clean the filter or just replace the reservoir entirely. Big time cold snap coming this weekend, so I should know the results soon.

Let me know if cleaning the filter works. Having a similar issue and want to know whether it's worth it or just need to replace the whole reservoir.
