    Spongy brakes? Hard steering? Noisy pump?

    It might be time to do a power steering flush.

    Its a very simple procedure.

    You will need:
    3 quarts Mercon V ATF (Synthetic Prefered)
    3/8" ID Hose/Tubing
    Pliers
    A bucket

    I was having issues like rebounding pedal, and after learning the flush proceedure my braking problems are gone.

    About 150,000 miles at the time I did it.
