Hi, my PS fluid is milky and I wanted to change all the fluid in the pump and steering sector. Removed only line on the steering sector

that would come out (first jacked up front end) and turned steering wheel back and forth. Emptied pump reservoir several times

before reconnecting line on steering sector. Filled up pump reservoir and started engine. Whines when I turn wheel right to left.

Turned off engine and checked reservoir...milky again but hadn't lost much fluid.

Does the steering sector take different weight oil as opposed to PS fluid and if not why the whine with full reservoir?

The lines from my PS pump run to the top of the steering sector. Are there different compartments in the s. sector for PS fluid and a heavier weight gear oil in a separate

compartment of the sector?

The ATF or “power steering fluid” lubes everything inside the steering gear. It may take several flushes to get the water out. Once you have good fluid in there and all bubbles are worked out, the pump should be quiet.
