Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Replacing power steering hose?

Brake fluid's good properties are that it transmits pressure well and doesn't eat rubber parts. It's bad ones are that it is hygroscopic....meaning it attracts water, and that it has no ability to prevent wear in high rpm spinning (pump) mechanicals. It's only good for minimal back and forth movement like a brake piston. The water attraction is why it's used in a sealed environment like a brake system. Floor jacks use a different hydraulic fluid because they are self-bleeding and have a port open to the air.

Chrysler has always said automatic trans fluid was not recommended and voided the warranty. Something to do with leaks I think. I buy a gallon container of clear power steering fluid for my cars....it feels thicker and maybe has more anti-wear additives in it.

Lucas power steering treatment works good in a leaky system, but it's red color will void any warranty in your new car, and if you put more than 1/4 of the systems capacity in it will stiffen up the steering real bad in the winter!


thank you for this vital information, we have been scratching our heads on what happened on the power steering hose, all is good now. after reading this forum for some time i stumbled upon this thread. many thanks!
