Wrote this up to help folks with the same problem I had. Clogged filter in the reservoir. power steering system holds 34oz of fluid on the Chryslers. When looking in to it I got the TSB on the fluid change. BIL looked at it & laughed this is what the Ford guys in the plant do to the TEST cars he said. It worked On some of the Fords with the return line with the fitting they put a line over the end

That TSB does not apply to the KJ as there is no filter of any kind in the KJs PS system(3.7s)no screen either which is what must be cleaned in the minivans.I know as I took apart my original PS pump when I SFAd it just because I couldnothing was wrong with the pump but replaced it anyways since I wanted a fresh pump to power the Ford steering box.

International lubricants was emailed regarding mixing with ATF4 and they said ok to mix as above.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Need to Replace Power Steering Pump

Well it looks like the power steering pump went in my 2003 Limited... has anyone done this job The Haynes manual says you need to take off the grill and radiator cross member. Is this really necessary I know Ill need to remove the pulley from the old and press onto the new but anything else I should know Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ill need to do this job today as I have work tomorrow.

Just mark your bolts and work your way around. I also put a 116 bead of RTV on the face just outside edge of the new water pumps inaugurated gasket.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE How to flush Power Steering Fluid

Hi there My liberty is getting to the point where its time to flush out the power steering fluid but I cant seem to find a How to. I looked through my Haynes manual and they talk about bleeding the system to remove air but nothing on how to just replace the fluid. Is it just a matter of replacing the fluid in the reservoir If so that seems like you are doing half the job. Thanks for the help

second the use of ATF4 in your power steering. doesnt have to be Mopar brand. Just needs to be to ATF4 specs. FWIW But then again - its your rig just saying. Hmmm...were talking about the ZJ Because it requires PS fluid not ATF4...the pump and rack are not designed to run ATF doing so would likely degrade the seals and cause serious leaks or worse damage the entire steering system.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE type of power steering fluid

Hey guys i dont know what kind of power steering fluid to use on my 08 liberty please help me out its a little low. I dont wanna put the wrong type in ive heard it could damage the power steering system

My guess is that Trans fluid has all the best properties over PS fluids. High temp non foaming excellent cleaning action non corrosive etc. I thought my PS pump was a bit noisy though and recently had it flushed by dealer. Yesterday I removed about 4 oz from pump container and added in LubeGard power steering fluid and within one minute it was dead quiet. Wonder if something is still missing in the 4 fluids though. httpwww.lubegard.comautomotiveindex.html

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 03 lib power steering fluid & antifreeze

Cant find a definate answer on power steering fluid for my 03. book says see dealer some say ATF 4. I just want to make sure whats right before Im topping the res off. And are global antifreezes alright What are the guidelines I should follow when choosing antifreeze Yes this is my first jeep. Thanks

HOATG05 should be flushed and replenished every 5 years or sooner. The power steering requires ATF4. It does get dirty that PS fluid and it should be flushed out as well. I now use a mixture of ATF4 and LubeGard power steering fluid which immediately quietened down the pump and it now runs cooler. No stiff steering when cold either. I suction out the PS fluid once a year from the reservoir and get clean stuff in there.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE power steering pump replaced

My wifes 2005 kj 4x2 limited w 3.7liter started to get a small leak between front wheels about a month ago. fluid was slippery and red tint. Couldnt spot the source. Leak progressed worse and worse. steering was groaning but fluid were all good. Engine had no loss oc power no excess white exhaust and oil clear as well as coolant color ok. Just to rule head gasket I ran a CO2 test on the surge tank

Hmmm if you look at that last picture that line is dry. The same line on my jeep is wet when looking up at the pump. I think that you have a leak somewhere else maybe the tank Also I think that you have different pump than my 2002 the fluid in my 2002 liberty is clear.

Driving home in my 2005 KJ Limited today I can suddenly hear a whininggroaning sound when turning the steering wheel. It sounds like its coming from under the hood directly in front of the drivers seat. Is this likely to be the power steering pump going kaput

Check your PS fluid leveladd only AFT4.Bet your PS prerssure line is leakingmake sure you replace both the pressure and return line as a pair.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE New Guy With Problems... Power Steering...

Howdy yall Ive been lurking here for a little bit shouldve really got on her a long time ago but was a little pre occupied. Let me be the first to say I love my little liberty. Its an 02kj with a little less than 110k on the odometer 3.7L V6. I just replaced the old power steering pump with a new one from autozone. Got it installed using a haynes manual and improvised tools. For the life of me I have

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Power Steering clicking noise when the steering wheel is turned fully left or right.

Usually when I turn the wheel to the left or right limit I can hear the pump strain but that is the extent of the noise. Lately if the steering wheel is turned to its limits either left or right I get a continuous clicking noise until I back the wheel off slightly. This has started in the last week. I havent changed anything or hit anything. Any ideas what might be going on and what I should look at replacing Thanks in advance for the help

power steering SYSTEM steering NOISE There is some noise in all power steering systems. One of the most common is a hissing sound evident at a standstillparking or when the steering is at the end of its travel. Hiss is a high frequency noise similar to that of a water tap being closed slowly. The noise is present in all valves that have a high velocity fluid passing through an orifice. There is no

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE HELP Power steering temporary failure( works on and off )

hey everyone whats up Im new to this forum and dont know if this is the right section to post this in but any help or advise would be greatly appreciated anyways Heres my story...

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 2002 jeep liberty power steering noise

High pitched noise when started in cold leaking fluid I dont know where. Once its warmed up the noise is less. The noise sounds like a bad belt but the belt is new. Im inclined to think its the power steering rack. If so any links to what is good as far as a part Also I know it would have to be aligned after but my primary concern is the fittings that attach to the unit seems there is 2 in and out. Is it bolt on or do you need special tools Thanks Kevin

Ya nice link..wow. My power steering pump was noisy until I suctioned out the reservoir and added LubeGard Universal see the 32 oz bottle. Try that. In 45 seconds my pump quietened right down. This may shut it up. httpwww.lubegard.comC-199LUBEGARDpowersteeringfluid Ps glad ur leak is fixed..keep an eye on it those are real high pressure lines.

Is the pump rattling Well it will lube things better for sure but if the bearings or internal problemsdamage it wont fix that. If you got the 32 oz bottle you got enough for a second treatment. Drive it for a few days and use the LubeGard again. Just curious what did the PS fluid taste like oil or I tasted a few different flavours a few times myself. Best to use a turkey baster to remove the fluids not tube into the mouth.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Reuccurring power steeing pump problem

So I have a 2002 libby lmtd edition and the power steering pump keeps making an odd noise. It was a loud kindof chewbacca noise at first then I got it fixed at a local shop. It still made a small noise but nothing too loud or no physical driving problems. Recently I had the oil changed and the service people told me that I may have a slow front diff leak I took a look at it and couldnt find anything.&hellip

I would check that. I bought my fluid directly from the dealer who took the time to look up my year make and model and bring me the correct PS fluid. The Mopar PS fluid is a heavy slightly amber clear fluid much thicker than ATF 4. The power steering fluid that originally came in my liberty was this same clear fluid.

I think its jeep thing because I replaced the steering rack pump hoses and I still have bad assist. I doubt switching to Mopars steering fluid will help.

Since I already purchased

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Is my power steering going

Lately (naturally right after I dropped 800 on new brake padsrotorscalipers) my 2005 liberty Sport 3.7L has made a whining noise when turning at low speed both forward and reverse. This seems like a power steering issue no How much would something like this set me back The car has 122k miles so not sure how much its worth it to put a bunch of money into it again

The whining is the classic sign of low fluid. CK it out you might get 2-3 qts and flush the system to get rid of the old burnt fluid. Hopefully you caught this in time before the pump gave out from lack of fluid. Oilburner

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 02 power steering issues

As a result of a leak in the high pressure hose have eplaced that hose and the pump. Still getting whine when turning so either I havent got it bled right or maybe rack I am new to the jeep world and bought this 02 liberty Sport with 187KM for my daughter to go to school. Love the vehicle but this has me stumped. Any suggestions on bleeding other than the normal back andf forth

Should have replaced to return hose also but if the correct fluid was used(ATF4) just drive it for a few weeks and the noise should go away as most new pumps tend to whine some until they break in just a little.If it does not time to start looking at the R&P seals.

The power steering pump in my moms 2002 liberty makes a loud winding noise until it warms up. It has been leaving little puddles in her driveway. It just recently started doing both of these things. Has this happened to anybody else. I put regular power steering fluid in it. I just read about ATF4 and Lubegard. If you put your finger on the pump when its running you can feel it whining as well as hear it. Is there anything I can do to quiet it down and stop the leaking. Thanks in advance

The power steering spec is ATF4. Amzoil does not even make ATF4. I think they made a ATF Universal One thing is certain that Amzoil did not make the Chrysler list for Licensed ATF4 fluids. httpcenterforqa.comlicensedatf4brands.html One product I do mix with the ATF4 to quieten down the steering pump and remove stiffness when cold is 32OZ Universal httpwww.lubegard.comC-199LUBEGARDpowersteeringfluid

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 2002 Liberty steering is way stiff when cold.

Hello. Heres the deal. My girls 2002 libery when cold... it is very hard to turn the steering wheel to the right. thers a lot of resistance until it gives and then after that she can turn just fine. She says turning to the left is a lot easier but there is still some resistance initally. I personally checked her powersteering fluid and its full. checking it is kind of dumb because i know that if its

How many miles on her KJ How cold is it when this is happening Does it do it after it warms up If it is seriously binding that indicates possible mechanical problem that should be checked out. If it has been leaking air got in you need to fix leak then you have to bleed out the air from system as well. If it only does it while cold you could suction out all the power steering fluid reservoir and add

In cvrivcharles original post is was stated I personally checked her powersteering fluid and its full. checking it is kind of dumb because i know that if its low the PS pump makes noise I assumed that if it was l ow or had had been low and making noise that there was a leak It is recommended that the power steering fluid be flushed out occasionally. If the PS ATF4 oil has never been changed you could

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Squeaky steering rack

Hi All New to this site I have a 2002 uk liberty jeep 3.7L with a very annoying steering rack. When you turn the steering moving or stationary a squeaking groaning noise comes from the right hand end of the rack. I took the boot off today and packed it with grease which worked for a bit but its back The thought of having to replace the rack fills me with dread anyone else come across the same problem and come up with a solution Cheers Bob

That is tough to diagnose without really being there. I assume this a 4x4 with no fluid leaks. I know my rack was noisy coming from the pump and lower side when turning when cold. I noted that the power steering pump in my 04 utilizes ATF4 (friction modified transmission) fluid. I purchased LubeGard in 32 oz bottle and suctioned out fluid in pump and added this in. Now dead quiet. LUBEGARD power steering

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Noob Fluid question.

Sorry for such a noob question but I just had my transmission fluid changed.. and power steering (transmission at Jiffy) (power steering mechcanic) My jeep currently has 109000. No transmission problems no steering issues. When should I be flushing transmission agaion When should I be flushing power steering again Thank you.

ATF4 is used both in the transmission and power steering. I would personally suction out what ever is in the power steering reservoir when hot. Note level. (ATF4 Compatible synthetic) Then replace with Lubegard power steering with LXE....this stuff is good and will keep things in smooth quiet working order keep seals moist and help when cold. I used the 32 oz bottle as in this link 10. My pump was

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Steering Wheel Issue

I am issues with steering wheel on my 2002 liberty. When the engine is cold it is almost impossible to turn the steering wheel. Once it is warm it is fine. I have had the power steering fluid drained flushed and refilled and nothing works. This only happens in the late fall and winter. Once weather gets warm the problem is gone. Also currently when I am idling at a red light or in traffic my heat blows coo. however once I get going at a steady speed it blows hot. Any idea what may this

Definitely check for something in the front end biding. If it was the steering column bearings it probably would not fix itself when warm. A possible blockage in the return line through the rack hoses might cause this effect. Bad rack pump I use Lubegard power steering 32 oz bottle as below and it is a synthetic reduces friction and safe to mix with ATF4. It quietens down the pump and may free the

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE 2002-2007 steering differences

I am wondering the differences in the steering in it 07 and 02s. I liked the steering in my 07 much better than the 02 i currently have. The 07 was far easier to turn the wheel. Can someone explain the differences in the two And is it possible for me to snag the parts to change it out of a wrecked 05-07

Never saw that TSB so I goggled it. I guess if I ever change out the steering rack I will switch over. Once a year I use a turkey blaster and remove all the fluid in the reservoir and replace it with fresh power steering fluid. 212K miles and never had a problem with the steering system. knock on wood.

JEEP LIBERTY CHEROKEE Daily Drive - How Often Do You change Differential Fluids

Hi Everyone I am getting ready to hit 60K and was making my list of everything that needs done. In the owners manual it suggests that if you do any off roading trailer towing etc. then to change the fluids every 15K. This is according to schedule B. It doesnt even list changing the fluid in Schedule A which applies more to me. I use 4WD around 100 miles a year in snow and muddy pastures. I did change

Both the front & rear diffs (4x4) should be changed frequently. Once a year or every 15k miles. I do my front & rear diff every 12k miles. oil is cheap parts are not. The front transfer case ATF4 I also like to change once a year. Transmission ATF4 every 35k or sooner if you get transmission temp light on. (service by dealer only) Diffs Straight GL5 (no synthetic) lasts longer and is better. 75w-90
