Wanna flush Power steering to get some new fluid in there, Should I worry or not?

I wanted to change my power steering fluid out so I can get some new, fresh fluid in there. Should I even worry about it or would it be a plus for the power steering pump?

I put amsoil synthetic atf in my ps pump years ago. It also drives the brakes and I did not want it to go out on me leaving me with a huge problem.

Flush ps

The easiest way to do it is to remove the return line and put it in a container. Start the engine and pour clean fluid into the pump and watch the returning fluid going into the container. When the returning fluid looks the same color as what your pouring in, shut off engine and replace return line. The return line is usually just a soft rubber hose held on with a simple clamp. The other line is a high pressure line-leave it alone.
