Can't find capacity of power steering fluid on my 2003 dodge 1500 pu, also can I add Auto-RX and after 1000 miles change the fluid using the turkey baster method which takes more miles cause u only change & refill the amount in the reservoi (sp)?

I don't know why you'd want to do the turkey baster dance ... you can just remove the return/low pressure hose and pour fluid into the resovoir until it comes out all fresh and sparkly from the return.. you'll waste less fluid and be done much sooner, just put the hose into a plastic jug to keep it from getting everywhere.

I agree.  I have done it to my 02 Tundra and my father's 99 F-150 and it took approximately 10-15 mins each.  Very easy to do and that way you get all of the fluid out of the power steering pump and lines.  The only thing I did differently was after I pulled the line off, I put the end into an empty 20oz empty water bottle, then had someone start the vehicle.  After the fluid finished pumping out (about 3-4 secs), shut the vehicle off, reconnect the hose and add new fluid to the full level.  Start the vehicle again to circulate the fluid throughout the system (about 15-30 secs), shut the vehicle off and disconnect the hose again.  repeat the process until clean fluid comes out of the hose.  It took me 2 cycles on my dad's truck and 3 cycles on my Tundra.  Good luck

Auto-Rx seems to be working well in my 2003 G35. While I was having my engine oil and filter changed to start the rinse phase, I noticed that I had a PS fluid leak from a seal that was getting some of the adjacent equipment wet, but not dripping. So I added 2 ozs of ARX to the PS reservoir and drove it for 1200 miles. Yesterday, while having the engine oil filter changed, I also had the PS fluid replaced (syphon/re-fill method) and noticed that the seal leak has almost stopped completely. All of the adjacent equipment is dry now, but the O-ring seal is still a little moist. I'll continue to monitor it. Thank you Auto-Rx.
