I checked the fluid and I have seen healthier fluid. It'* darker than it should be, and I'm 99% sure it'* the original fluid. It needed just a touch to bring it to the right level. It didn't really change any symptoms. And i want to send a warm thanks to GM for moving that pump and reservoir down there on the L36.
I can get a remanu pump for about $60, or even less at a yard. I can get a therapeutic flush and refill for $50. I was trying to figure out if I should skip the flush. I don't know if it is even possible to stop the pump from singing and improve the power assist by changing the fluid.
(Just an FYI, this car had about 2,000 miles total put on it in the 2 years before I got it. I don't know if that is so good for fluids and lines. I have changed, flushed, and bled everything else jic.)
