Problem:
The power steering reservoir is plastic and has very low heat dissipation. As a result, the steering system overheats
if the car is driven hard. Even if driven normal in warm climates, the system runs hot causing the life of the steering
component to be reduced.
Solution:
All German Auto has developed a billet 6061 aluminum power steering reservoir. The billet finned design offers
superior heat dissipation over the stock reservoir. The internal replaceable hi flow filter offers better than stock
filtration with less back pressure.
Benefit:
This AGA power steering reservoir is a direct bolt in part that installs in minutes. It lowers the power steering system
temperature significantly, extends power steering component life, prevents steering fluid from overheating in hard
driving conditions, and has a replaceable filter.

Installation instructions:
These instructions are for experienced technicians only.
If instructions are needed to remove stock components refer to All Data, Mitchel or Factory Manual.
1. To reduce oil spilled during replacement, empty reservoir with suction device. If necessary, remove
surrounding components (ex: air filter housing) to gain access to power steering hoses. Loosen
clamping bolt on bracket. Remove clamps from hoses (If hose clamp is crimp type, cut with pliers)
and remove reservoir.
2. Check condition of hoses. If cracking or swelling, replace hoses.
3. Installing reservoir: Fit hoses on reservoir. NOTE: supply and return hoses are different sizes.
CAUTION: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN CLAMPS. Slide reservoir into bracket and tighten clamping
bolt. Fill reservoir with factory fluid to proper level. Start engine and let run for 1 minute. Shut engine
off and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Recheck fluid level.
For extreme driving conditions, install vent kit (if purchased).
Push nipple into vent hole in cap. Route the vent hose to a low point in the
engine compartment. Make sure the hose is away from belts and hot
components in engine compartment. Secure vent hose with zip ties. Do
not over tighten zip ties causing the vent tube to be restricted.

Instructions for Replacing the Filter:
1. Begin by removing the power steering reservoir from the vehicle.
2. Using a strap wrench, unscrew the top of the reservoir.
Small o-ring
(located under filter)
Large o-ring
(located in top seal)
3. Remove the bolt (5mm Allen) from the center of the filter and remove filter. Remove the small o-ring
under the filter. Clean filter housing for any debris. Install small o-ring (to keep o-ring in grove, a small
amount of the supplied grease can be used). Install filter. Install bolt/washer and tighten to 60 inch
pounds (5 Ft. lbs). Remove the large o-ring in reservoir top. Install new large o-ring. Apply film of grease
to o-ring. Screw top on and hand tighten with strap wrench.
Caution: if the threads don’t line up perfectly when screwing the top on the reservoir, the
reservoir will be damaged!
4. Once the reservoir is back together, install in vehicle per the instructions above.
