Well after 305,000 miles this morning I woke up to alot of power steering fluid under the van and a dry reservoir. Thought it was the air conditioner condensate but unfortunelty no. Looking underneath it appears the pump is leaking. I notice the service manual says the exhaust system needs to be taken off at the converter to remove the pump. Is this really necessary? If so I'll do it but with the high miles...anything less that I have to take apart is always a good thing. I'm trying to plan the job...any other ideas or helpful hints on this job? I appreciate any and all help as usual. Happy 4th of July all.
