2004 Toyota Highlander V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 35K miles
Dealership has told my daughter that the power steering system in the car needs to be flushed and fluid replaced because it is brow/black in color. I looked and I agree with color change. The vehicle is not driven hard or in any extreme weather condtions mostly back and forth to work. My question is if the color starts out pale yellow what caused it to get to this color in the first place and in such a relatively short period of time? Also, shouldn't the cause of the color change be adressed? I read somehwere that you can't tell just by color but this is not just a color change but also seems like a viscosity change. She has never added fluid and there are not leaks. There are no malfunctions with the steering
have the same problem?
