      Hello 'O blessed folken 'O mine own seeouul!
      Yeah, I had that campaign too.  Take off the clip inside the reservoir along the center stud and there is another cover below that.  Take off that cover(like upside down bowl) and the filter will be below it.  I suggest replacement, however, of the filter because there is contaminated oil in the system, having done it's circulation for a time and creating the sludge that is on the filter and not allowing the fluid to flow into the pump on the return side.  Whatever you do, use the dexron to clean filter and refill w/ dexron.  Good enough? ha.
      Good Luck,

      Good morning John,
      Hey, now that you mention it, over the weekend I tried to install a power steering pump. I went to the local pick-a-part this weekend and pulled a brand new looking pump off a 6 series. Even though it looked exactly the same it did not work. The pump screamed bloody murder. I pumped the brakes and turned the wheel to hopefully get the air out of the system. Unfortunately, this did not work. I was forced to put the old pump back on. Now, it sounds worse. I went back to do a little research and found that the pump does have filter. I'm going to try cleaning that. Any advise??
      Have a great day,

      I know I had to replace the fan clutch and it made a difference in
      the temp. It was just slipping too much. The old one lost fluid at
      the front through the...viscous coupling?

      Any thing happens with that thing and I can probably give you
      unwarranted advise on it! I have changed/serviced/ cont. to service

      > Hey John,
      > My apologies for not posting pics. I will do it this weekend. I've
      been pulling my hair out with this overheating problem. I had the fan
      clutch and the thermostat replaced just yesterday and it was still
      overheating. After just two minutes of the car running the system
      would become pressurized and fluid would start to leak out of the
      sensor in the coolant resevoir. This morning I discovered the
      problem. When the system started overheating a helpful mechanic
      bypassed the main cooling fan so that the secondary fan, the one in
      front of the radiator, would constantly run. The mechanic who did the
      work yesterday didn't realize this. After discovering this, I
      reconnected the cooling fans leads to the sensor on the radiator. The
      fan clutch kicked in and began to cool the engine. From what I could
      see the pressure was relieved from the system. Hopefully, things will
      remain this way. I'll post those pics soon.
