Picked up some of the blue devil last night. This morning sucked out about 4-6oz. And dumped half bottle in. Truck needs a bath something awful then I'll be able to tell if it stopped. I'll keep ya posted. Must be serious stuff as it come with a warranty. Thanks for the help Reger

Update.
Still no leaks, but........flushed system with AW32 hyd oil, worked good, its 84 today and mother****er won't steer, I'm headed to work so I dumped a concoction of shit in it and am making tracks.

So we'll see what that ugly ass overpriced PSC pump does when I get back in.

I wonder if it's the fluid you're using.. I can't tell you the last time I put a ps pump on a dmax. Let alone had issues with it.. plenty of trucks with big wheels and tires..

Always ran valvoline up until the hydraulic oil.

Heat seems to be my issue. All these damn hills working that engine at lower speeds heat soaks it and kills them. I put a cooler on but it's not big enough, I have another cooler mounted (half ton trans cooler) but I haven't plumbed it up yet.

I use Redline fluid and have 180k on my original pump. It's had 33's on it since I bought it pretty much.

Default Another pump bites the dust

Hydraulic fluid goes to shit after 115*. It really has to be kept cool. There are guys that run that same stuff as shock oil in the off road world, does good for an occasional off roader but it will not last in a truck that hammers through the desert. Proper size shocks play a role there too though.

I still really like the BG stuff. Got it got a few times and made no difference. Lots of guys swear by the redline oil for crawlers with full hydro steering too

Hydraulic oil does not go to shit 115*. 230* is about the max it should see. At 250* the oil still isn't really the issue. The seals and o rings get hard and will fail. A properly functioning and design hydraulic system should operate at about 100* above ambient temperature.
