Default anyone replaced all the hoses?

so last wk, i did the power steering flush myself. old fluid was like black cherry smoothie.

what i noticed and found most difficult was removing the old hose connected to reservoir. i mean it was like glued on and rubber was so hard it cracked in pieces. busted some knuckles, too...

similar event took place when replacing pcv hose.

so was just thinking if anyone replaced all the hoses on their ls's.

Yeah I had lotta trouble with the blasted PCV hose too even with the engine stone cold.

Haven't had to do the power steering hoses yet but agree with you on flushing it.

I need to do my power steering flush / change out the hose too. the steering was acting soooo messed up a bit ago.. it would act like there was no power steering at certain points of turning the wheel.. then go away. then come back... then go away...

I suction out all the fluid I can with a syphon, and add new stuff, about every 50K miles, takes 5 minutes. (my original pump has 240K on it and is still fine).

Your PS solinoid needs to be cleaned. Click on the first thread at the top of the page and check out the second link. (power steering bible) You'll find everything you need.
