I used the pump in the picture with clear tubes,top in the reservoir and bottom in the empty jar.After pumping the fluid I put Ford XT-5-QM MERCON-V Automatic Transmission and Power Steering in there up to line under the max line and drove around the blocks.I did again and again till fluid was clean red bright color,I used 2 quarts.I jacked up the front tires and I turn the key(not starting)and I did the 15 to 20 times left to right and right to left turns.I started the truck and did the same thing again.I did this a few of times after driving around ,check the reservoir and the fluid is bubbling,never had any noise at all.I should have drain it from low pressure line,didn't I?
Will this boiling fluid will go away or not?

May be, and air in the system will get mixed up again causing smaller bubbles.
I think filling using vacuum like filling a brake system would yield less air.

I should have drained it by removing low pressure line and plug it but I missed it.Should I go ahead and do it that way.
Can the air from break line will mix with this?
I should be hearing some noise even when I have the truck jacked up and turning it,right.

I think if I flush it from low pressure line and top it off the reservoir ,the air bubbles will come out with fluid(which I should have done that from beginning).

I finally got a replacement for Mityvac Silverline Elite and Mityvac Ford Power Steering Adaptert (first package was a return one,the vaccum rather than pulling was pushing air on vacuum position and was popping the adapter out ).I am bleeding it, like it says on manual and the video and so far the fluid is boiling like before.Like I said before no leaks anyware that I know.I did 3 or 4 times so far.
