have not yet got around to bleeding out all the old brake fluid, but the stuff in the resivoir was getting a little greyish as well.
oh, yes... either get new suctioning stuff for each job (mixing these fluids will kill both systems) or clean the billy hell out of the system with lots of rags and 99% isopropyl alcohol, get it dry before doing anything else with the suctioning gear. if fluid softens anything up, don't monkey around, throw it out now.
I very recently used my "home tuned" Mason jar and Mityvac combo unit to remove the power steering fluid from my 1997 Geo reservoir. It worked quite well. I didn't enjoy the cleaning at the end, but that is mandatory in rules for acceptable garages!
could have also been splashed with suntan oil in the plant on Monday morning and wiped so the foreman wouldn't notice, or something like that.
