so I continued the PS fluid "change" on the beater Elantra (I had started it and used about qt of PSF the 1st time, and did the rest today).
The PSF was still dark/black the last time I stopped;

Today I started again and sucked (using mightyvac) PSF out, filled, started car, turn wheel lock to lock several times, then repeat etc etc...

After going through about 1.5 qt of new PSF Fluid, the fluid coming out of car looked pinkish/red, so I just finished off that qt and added some LubeGuard PSF conditioner...

I should be done when it looks like this, no?




Products used: (The ATF I chose is certified for Hyundai PSF spec PSF3 or whatever that is)

Yeah, I think you got it. That's very clean.

Thanks! I guess I was a bit surprised that it came out clear that early.

Looks good! Notice any difference with the LG p/s product? Just curious as it helped on the '77 F250.

Oh I just put it in, and haven't really driven since; So it would be sometime before I can tell any difference, if any.
My car wasn't making any steering/PSF related funny noises etc either; I just added it as a precaution, as this car is so old.

I do remember it curing a steering related noise I had in my old Tbird one time.

To know it is really clean, get an empty water (clear) bottle and fill it up with used PSF/ATF and that'll give you a better idea of its condition.
