I'm using power steering fluid. The truck is a 1997 and this is the first time the power steering system has been touched in anyway. Also when I looked carefully at the fluid I pumped out it looked like it had black bits in it. I did a road test and the steering doesn't seem to be as responsive as before...it has a tighter feel. Time perhaps for a new steering gear. Lastly when I start the engine there is a slight whine coming from the pump. I'm just going to see what happens over time; everything else appears to be ok. Thanks for the reply and nice looking machine you got.
