INTRODUCTION
to the Flo-Dynamics PSX3000
Congratulations on the purchase of your PSX3000 power steering fluid
exchanging machine!
Simply put, this machine is the cleanest, safest, easiest, fastest, most thorough,
and most cost-efficient method of power steering fluid exchange ever devised.
Suddenly, power steering maintenance has become a more realistic proposition.
Fluid exchanges are cleaner and neater than ever!
Service neglect leads to power steering system complaints including poor
handling, hard or sluggish steering, and objectionable noise. Historically, power
steering system fluid service has been neglected, often due to the lack of a
convenient method for providing such flush or fluid exchange services. Previous
methods for flushing the power steering system or replacing the power steering
fluid were time consuming and often inefficient or incomplete. Now, it’s easier
than ever to replace up to 95% of the old power steering fluid in less than 8
minutes, to ensure your power steering system has a long, trouble-free life.
Please take time to read through this manual to familiarize yourself with the
PSX3000 before performing your first power steering fluid exchange.

OPERATING PROCEDURE
NOTE: To prevent overfilling, if the used fluid tank becomes too full the system will disable the
“DRAIN” button on the pendant, an audible alarm will sound, and the “Used Fluid Tank Full” LED
will light up. At this point the “FILL” button on the pendant will remain active, but the “DRAIN”
button is disabled.

Ensure the vehicle’s battery terminals are free of any corrosion.
Attach the PSX3000’s battery clips to the vehicle’s battery terminals.
Activate pendant service mode by pulling the knob on the machine’s control panel. The
pendant service mode LED will light up.
Remove cap from vehicle’s power steering fluid reservoir (and screen if applicable)
With the vehicle’s engine running, place hoses (same length) into power steering fluid
reservoir. You may use the included dock magnet to hold the hoses in place.
Turn the ball valves to the “on” position on both hoses.
While watching the fluid level in the reservoir, use the “DRAIN” and “ADD” buttons on the
remote pendant to repeatedly drain and add fluid. Repeated purging and adding of fluid
will flush the old fluid out of the reservoir.
Turn the vehicle’s steering wheel all the way to the left, then all the way to the right, and
back to center.
Check the color of the fluid in the reservoir to ensure a clean exchange. Repeat steps 7
& 8 if necessary.
When finished, adjust fluid level, turn the ball valves to the “off” position on both hoses,
and remove hoses from power steering fluid reservoir.
Turn off vehicle’s engine, and replace reservoir cap and screen (if applicable).
