Yeah, having the power steering fluid in there would burn it up. When I mess with my power steering hoses, pump, or resevoir, I cover the alternator. Just to be safe. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">Originally posted by FLASHLIGHTMAN:
<STRONG>So is what your saying the fluid SHORTED out the alt or something??
I'm just curious because i don't wanna put in another one and have it smoke too, but if the cuase was just power steering fluid,i'll make sure it don't spill again.
Thanks a LOT!</STRONG>
