I'm new to the Forum....and an overall car repair dummie. I was recently (1 week ago) told that my 2001 Celica needs a Power Steering Flush. I declined the service initialy as I thought the price to be a little too much. I have never heard of this, but I have never owned a Toyota. As I was doing a little research on the P/S flush, I have discovered that there are two general schools of thoughts:
1. That the P/S flush is a bunch of bull and that it's just another money maker;
2. That the P/S flush is a necessitity for newer model cars and that those who think the former may not be "in the know".
I have no clue what to belive. Note that neither of the above is my personal opinion. The car does have 107,000 miles on it so I could see where this may be a good idea. On the other, I had a mechanic try to replace the entire Catalytic Converter when my O2 sensor needed replacing. Any advice is greatly appreciated! thanks!
