First of all, thanks for all the answers to my (?) about Mercon-V as PS fluid.

Here's another one, also about PS fluid.

I've heard of people using a syringe (or a turkey baster) to suck out the power steering fluid in the PS-Fluid reservoir and replacing that amount with fresh ps-fluid. Repeating this procediure several times will eventually get all the dirty ps fluid out, and will be replaced with new ps-fluid.

Has anyone tried this? would this work?
(the guys I know who've tried this say that it worked very well)

BTW, How many qts does the PS-system hold in a 4.6L?

any comments ?

Thanks

That would take a long *** time...

Disconnect the coil packs, drop the bottom return line from the PS resevoir. Then you can crank the engine to pump the fluid out, just keep filing the resevoir and eventually you'll have it all flushed out.
