Fluids Recommendation

Alright guys, I'm changing/flushing the powersteering fluid tomorrow in my truck (2001 F-250 PSD) and changing the oil and oil filter.

Is there a specific type of powersteering fluid yall recommend, and about how much does it hold? I don't know what kind is in it now but it whines all the time.

Also, planning to use Rotella-T 15W-40 w/ a K&N oil filter. Is this Ok, or would yall recommend something else?

Thanks again for all the help guys

flushing the powersteering system- use synthetic ATF fluid. yes, transmission fluid. it's what's recommended. on how to flush it, i have a thread that i posted in a while back, i have to search for it. i just had it the other day. ill post it up when i find it in a minute.

that oil is a great oil to use. i switched from that to 5w-40 synthetic rotella, and it's a definite improvement, especially in the wintertime, it doesn't romp romp romp when starting, and it builds pressure faster. however for summer use, it's not really needed. it's also twice as expensive.

if that K&N filter filters as well as their oiled paper filters, i would steer clear of it. LOL. however i have heard that K&N makes some pretty good oil filters.

have fun and if you need anything just holler.
