Default Simple power steering flush

Saw this video.

Seems like it would work. Just a lot of repeating the same thing. Seems easier than jacking the car up and removing various hoses and such.

Should I go for it?

Worst than could happen is I end up with a mix of old fluid and new fluid. Unless of course there is PS fluid in now and it mixes with the ATF I am going to put in. I'll make sure to repeat his "flushing" steps atleast 10 times but most likely more to be safe.

I really do google everything and search on here, before I post. 90% of the time both of those are no help. I don't have the money to keep taking it to a shop to get looked at, so I try to figure out as much a I can myself.

Oh and this worked BTW.

Took a little over 30 min, and $22. The pump was $7 and the rest was 3 quarts of ATF.
