According to Bulletin # 19-005-03, your 1995 Dodge Intrepid uses PS fluid MS5931, which is a amber/yellow color.Matt86 said:Anyone have a how-to or general directions? I looked in the FSM and Haynes, and they don't have any details. They don't even tell you the amounts of power steering fluid to use. I want to change mine and use synthetic fluid to help quiet the pump.
No, you don't want to run the system low on fluid. Just suck it out, put the new in, then run her. Then shut her off then do it all over again till you get the fluid in her to be clear, even after she's been running for awhile.Matt86 said:Oh, and while im doing this, should I leave the engine running when removing and adding fluid?
Pretty black? It WAS black. At least on the first suck full. Right now its a very light amber color, almost yellow. On the dipstick its clear. I'll pick up two quarts tomorow.Strongt said:Man ! Your fluid was pretty black ! Mine wasn't that bad, maybe thats why its taking more fluid then what mine took.
Yeah, looks like old motor oil. It's good to change the fluid every so often I think. The fluid in the the P/S system get's pretty hot.Matt86 said:Pretty black? It WAS black.
