Customer Question

i have put small amount of water in... Hi have put small amount of water in power steering resevoir and drove it 2 miles before realising. Have drained the resevoir and put new fluid in then ran it for a few seconds turning the wheels but it still has
creamy fluid. Cannot drain from rack as skid pan and really arkward. Will it make it even worse if i drive 15 miles to mechanic to have it flushed?

hi,15 miles isn't bad but it could mess the pump or rack,and I agree that it is hard to get at .
does it still have power steering and does it whine when driving straight ?
Or whine when you turn ?
if the steering is stiff and very hard to drive/steer nor turn ...I wouldn't take a chance ,,,..jazzmaster ..
