Will 3/4 cup of brake fluid hurt my power steering system?
It was nice for you to measure it before putting it in..
Yes get it out...easy thing to use is a turkey baster.... find cheap at a 99c/$1.00 store.... AND once you get it out and and new fluid in...THROW THE BASTER AWAY...As I hope you do with the measuring cup you used to put the "3/4 cup" in...
I actually have no idea how much he put in (I'm estimating) but I've been driving the truck around for three days since it was topped up so I imagine it has circulated throughout the system. I'll have it flushed. Thanks for the advice. It never ceases to amaze me how great the mechanical literacy challenges are here. I started taking creepers apart in my dad's shop when I was 8 or so and have owned and serviced dozens of old cars over the years. I bought the LJ so I could start teaching my 12 yo son some mechanical basics. He knocked out his first oil change on the cruiser last night with some assistance. I didn't realize I'd be locked in a constant struggle to protect it from the guy that drives my son to school.
