    i've bought some dexron III is that the right fluid before i put it in and cause the seals to f**k up. ?????

    Cant find much on net.

    The chamber was pretty much empty, i noticed a whining noise from engine bay when turning wheels on stand still, i think its air in the power steering pump or summit. Chkd oil and it was low... not much at all.

    Also you need to check the fluid level when its warm with the wheels straight. If you are checking it on a cold engine and a cold day it will be normal for the level to be slightly under minimum.
