Power steering

I am sure this is not the right place to post this (I will get a message saying it's been moved) So I will post it here and MAYBE I will get some one to answer before they move it. SO

Power steering, I need more. Gonna flush it, few questions.
How?
How much? Fluid do I need to get?

The way I do it at work is buy the flush kit ( additive and fluid )

Start car
Open cap
Get my vacuum tool ( canister that hooks up to air hose )
I'll suck out the fluid until almost empty
I'll add the additive
Turn wheels side to side 6-8 times
Suck out fluid
Add fluid
Turn wheels 6-8 times
And repeat until I used up all the new fluid.

Pull the return hose off of the power steering pump and have it run into a suitable drain container.
Plug the nipple that it was attached to on the pump.
Take the cap off of the power steering pump.
Start the engine and keep pouring power steering fluid into the reservoir until the fluid coming out of the return line runs clean.

Get 4 or 5 quarts. You can take back what you don't use.
