I withdrew P.S. fluid from power steering.  I refilled reservoir, started engine and noticed a lot of free play.  I turned wheel all the way right and left.  Still too much free play.  What to  do.

With the engine running, slowly turn the steering wheel all the way, stop to stop, in both directions with the power steering fluid cap off until you don't see any foam in the fluid. This usually takes several minutes of turning the wheei. Be sure that you have the correct fluid in there and never ever put transmission fluid in a power steering system unless specified by the vehicle manufacturer! HTH. -Jim
