Good idea. I've changed the Ps fluid as the pump was making a little noise
at extreme turns of the wheel. These modern vehicles still use Type F for
power steering correct? It didn't say on the cap but every Ford I've ever
owned has used regular tranny fluid for the power steering. Seems to be
working fine so I assume all is well.
Tough little truck this is! I never expected a modern vehicle to be so
reliable and durable. Of course most of the emissions equipment is not there
anymore so that's a good thing for reliability. I'm surprised that the
Duraspark box survived being under water, and actually kept the engine
running while being submerged and resubmerged. Pretty cool.
