    The power steering cooler is the big aluminum thing in the upper radiator hose.

    flushed everything but the gas tank haha and it is still doing it so i am guessing that the ps cooler is bad and might have a blown head gasket since i do not have the power i used to and there look like there is brown in the radiator with the ps fluid =(
