how could i even check, without draining it and starting over?
PS fluid is clear
Not all the time OEM and generic PS fluid, yes, it'* "clear". I have used Lucas Oil PS fluid, it'* a dark red.

the entire reservoir is full of the stuff.. and its really THICK and sticky... im thinking that the rack doesnt like it until its warmed up...

i sucked out all of the red stuff out of the reservoir to the best of my ability.. and im gonna put some clear stuff back in...

is there anyway i can get ALL of it out?
