Default How many quarts to flush power steering system?

?
There are lots of posts on the procedure but no one mentioned how many quarts you need.
I'm guessing 3 or 4?

(going with Royal Purple synthetic ATF)

I think it took three to turn my fluid from brown to mostly red.

Went and got 2 quarts after I posted this. It only took 1 1/2 qts to get mine from brown to red. The pump holds way less than I thought, seems like it's less than half a quart.

It will change after you drive it back to brown.

still red

and I still have the whine too. it didnt get quieter at all which kinda irritates me since I used synthetic atf and everyone says their PS got quieter when they put syn atf in it.

Just my usual luck i suppose. (I usually don't get better results from anything I do to this fucking truck)
