"Hey, what's this red juice at the bottom of the turkey pan? Is that thing cooked all the way?"...

LOL on turkey baster .... from a guy that gets accused of that.

I pull the supply hose off the bottom where it connects to the pump. That takes some work to get to (pull off belly pans) so the suck out and replace method is probably the fair course if nothing else is wrong.

Hey, Honey, that yellow turkey baster bulb has always had black marks on it.

Pamela,
Yeah, we get into it but we have fun too. Anyway; lest you think we're kidding, Jim is right--just use the turkey baster method. I had to do this on my old Nissan truck and it worked fine. By the time you do 3 or 4 cycles of this you'll be in good shape.

Thanks guys....I don't know what I would do without all the advice that I receive from everyone. It is very much appreciated I particularly like the turkey baster method myself too....you know I never ate turkey until I came to live in the US - turkey just does not have the same appeal in Australia - we are more of a beef/lamb eating nation!! But I must say, I do like turkey and I am looking forward to my third Thanksgiving tomorrow....ooops, or is that today for all of you guys not so lucky as to live here in sunny Hawaii!!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE.....

decided to drag this old thread up instead of starting a new one...

i'm putting my new power steering reservior in tonight and want to use the "best" fluid... i'm already aware that i should use ONLY dexron III, but i'm not clear on the synthetic/dino issue. Redline makes a synth D3.... will that cause leaks or problems similar to what i'd see if i used regular old power steering fluid? or is synthetic ok and y'all were only reccomending against it because most is not d3 compliant?

i'm pretty sure i have a quart or two of old parts plus store brand dexron3/mercon from back when i flushed the auto tranny in my ford, i suppose i could use that, but the redline stuff i saw was only $7/quart which is more than i even need...

whaddaya say?

Does the Lucas Oil Power Steering Stop Leaks stuff work or will this kill my power steering system?

I hate to resurrect an OLD thread, but it looks like a lot of auto parts store don't have Dexron II or III anymore, so would Dexron V or VI be ok? I've not done much transmission or PS work on my 944 up to this point, but I'm getting ready to swap the PS pump and I just want to make sure I got the right stuff on hand, thanks.

Dexron VI meets the requirements of Dexron I, II and III. In theory most of these fluids are interchangeable but its best to go with the closest you can find to the factory spec.

In general when the manual specifies any type of Dexron or Mercon (Other than Mercon V) typically buy Dexron III.

You can still get it at walmart. the supertech non synthetic is Dexron 3 IIRC and its 2.84 a bottle. The later dexrons should work ok as well.

I was at my local Napa and they had this, and it's rated for dexron 2 systems. $10
