    Use a turkey baster to remove all the fluid from the reservoir, jack up the front of the car so the wheels are off the ground, top up the fluid with correct power steering fluid, locate the low pressure return hose at the reservoir and allow it stick into a empty gallon jug (you may need to attach a longer rubber hose to it, start the engine get a fried to turn the steering side to side as you constantly top up the fluid level, when the fluid is coming out clean ,the system is flushed. Reattach your hose turn the steering a few times then drive the car and recheck the level.
