    Coolant in PS reservoir 1999 SS

    I have a 1999 SS camaro that the PS pump started to whine yesterday. I checked into it today and with some inspection it appears I have some coolant in the PS reservoir and PS fluid in the radiator. I am thinking this could be a bad power steering cooler? I was planning on trying to replace PS cooler, the hose that runs from PS pump to cooler, flush radiator and PS system....thoughts?

    I am in a bit of uncharted territory as I bought the car new back in Nov 98 (4 months delayed as there was a GM strike that year) and with 87k miles other than a cracked H20 pump (was 16 below here in Denver) 4 light bulb replacements, stock cd player motor going out and a sticky clutch pedal in the winter, I have had freakin ZERO problems from this car. By far the best built car I have ever owned!!!!

    all stock except for the SS floormats and the SS badge that replaced the plastic CAMARO badge on the dash...pretty extensive upgrades huh

    The PS cooler - 10417037 - is $141 from GM parts. Replace it, then flush the PS fluid and you should be good to go.
