Power Steering Fluid is simply ATF without the red dye.

I use atf most of the time as I usually have plenty of that. Otherwise swepco 715 if I specifically need PS fluid.

I only use Idemitsu Bukaki power steering fluid. Never have any circle jerks in 4wd on dry pavement.

Looks like NAPA has the Idemitsu PSF for a more reasonable price than Amazon if anyone is interested.
Just a moment...

You can flush the PS fluid by simply jacking the front tires off the ground, removing the PS return line, and turning the wheel clock to clock with the engine off and the key in the on position.
To prevent a mess I plug the return port on the reservoir and extend the return line into a bucket on the floor. As soon as the reservoir is almost empty and before it can suck air, I fill it to the top with new fluid.
Repeat the process a few times until the fluid running out is clear.

No turkey basters, no partial fill, and easy clean exchange of all PS fluid.
I did the same method in 2011 on my 3rd gen. Check my photos. Works like a charm.

Anyone having heavy steering wheel? I changed the oil using the baster method over several days but it did not help. I'm running 285s since new. I cannot tell at which point the steering became heavy.
