I have read a write-up by someone but cannot locate it. In his write-up he says to remove the drain plug at the bottom of the power steering pump. Does this drain plug need a new washer or seal of any type?

I'm also replacing the resevoir since it's original at 91k and could use a new filter and be a bit cleaner.

For the new hoses the dealer provided me the better type clamp to keep it from leaking.
