Hi all,I require to include some liquid to the power steering on mine van, yet an not sure whether it should be traditional power steering liquid or ATF+4. The liquid in there at present is red. Ns do recognize that the previous owner had warranty organization work excellent that connected replacement the the 2 hoses and also fluid to deal with a "honk" trouble from the strength steering system, however I to be on the road and also don"t have actually the paperwork to check out what fluid they filled the with. I recognize that the normal fluid for this van is not ATF+4, yet I would have thought standard power steering fluid would be amber, not red.- G

Hi all,I need to add some liquid to the strength steering on my van, but an not sure whether it should be traditional power steering liquid or ATF+4. The liquid in there at current is red. Ns do understand that the vault owner had warranty service work done that associated replacement the the 2 hoses and also fluid to resolve a "honk" trouble from the strength steering system, yet I to be on the road and don"t have actually the paperwork to see what liquid they filled the with. I recognize that the normal liquid for this valve is no ATF+4, yet I would have thought conventional power steering liquid would be amber, not red.- G
I still have actually the steering "honk". I called the Chrysler dealer around it and spoke come the tech. He claimed to do the washing up the system and use ATF+4. If it"s red and work to be done at Chrysler, then I"m 99% certain it"s ATF+4. Strength steering liquid is clear/amber. ATF+4 is what I"d placed in. Some say the 3rd gen"s usage power steering fluid and not ATF+4 however if the technology at Chrysler said me the ATF+4 is recommended then that"s what I"m using.

I"ve noticed the "honk" 2 or 3 times in the last year or so, yet apparently the Chrysler business done ~ above the van early in its life nice well solved the problem. I discovered two TSBs for the issue, both of which seem come specify traditional Mopar power steering fluid, no ATF+4. Perplexing....

Check the day on the TSB"s. It to be probably prior to ATF+4 to be being provided in Chrysler"s power steerings systems. Power steering is basically just a hydraulic pump and also transmission liquid is a hydraulic fluid and also works fine. Mine is most likely a 50/50 mix in between the 2 (power steering fluid and ATF+4) and has been fine because that 2 years or so.

Back in 2006 the strength steering on our 1998 DGC was gaining a tiny noisy therefore I also was challenged with the ATF+4/Power steering liquid conundrum due to noise. I finished up evacuating as much of the old liquid out of the reservoir and also refilling the device with ATF+4. The procedure quieted the steering under considerably however not completely; I"d say it knocked turn off 90% the the noise and also that was good enough because that me. Ns did this when the van had just over 100,000 miles on it. When I offered it through 180,000 the device was still operation perfectly and also (mostly) quietly through no leaks or other ill results from the ATF+4.

Red = ATF+4, various other power steering liquid is amber. ATF+4 is good, only difficulty is finding ATF+4 in ~ the smaller sized gas stations. WalMart tote it and also most service shops will certainly as well. So, color match and top up with ATF+4.

I"ve excellent my homework top top this subject and this is what I have found. If you have a fix (such as a rack replacement) that reasons you to lose most/all of the fluid, Chrysler recommends to refill the system with ATF+4 no issue the year the van. Therefore if you had significant steering work done at a Chrysler dealer, the is what happened. Also if you desire to flush the system and refill it through ATF+4, that is no a difficulty either.
