Power steering fluid looking iffy


NAXJA Member #1108
I just swapped out my steering box for another, and when I filled it up to cycle the steering, the fluid came out like this, full of bubbles.

Any ideas why it's doing this? Could it be that water got into the box?

froth most likely. Just need to get all the air out of the system. Have you replaced PS fluid before and not seen this?

same thing happened when i put a new power steering pump on. it's just so many bubbles coming to the surface that it sorta froths up. give it a second to go away and go back to bleeding out the system.
