    Cost me a small fortune to get this fixed... Then the shop told me that they got the "smaller" OEM one and that is why it went out again! Then I had to pay for the redesigned one.... Really got taken for a ride at that shop...

    Drained the fluid, installed a new power steering reservoir, hoses, and clamps.. The reason I replaced the reservoir is because it contains a filter in the bottom, and they are not very expensive to replace. I think job cost like $50 or $60 dollars, and a few hours on a Saturday.. Easy Peasy.
