FYI in case anyone cares this fluid color is like yellow/green

FYI2 if you search for this PN (68088485AA) you will find more results online

FYI3 I asked the tech why my fluid was below the min, he said its pretty common and not to worry. Even though its a closed system , the fluid tends to evaporate off and they simply top off customer cars when they are in for oil changes.
Stuff like brake fluid and this special electric power steering fluid just don't evaporate. It wasn't filled like it should of from the factory. The temp that a fluid like that will evaporate is almost 400 degress F. That system will never get that hot. You'll be lucky if that will get to 180 degrees..

Re: 3.6 Electric Power Steering Fluid

Yup. I would agree but that doesn't explain why my reservoir was just below the min mark

Topped it off and went on with my life

Re: 3.6 Electric Power Steering Fluid

Under filled at factory would be most likely. My 2015 is right on min line.

Anyway, fluid calls for MoparŪ MOPARŪ Hydraulic Power Steering Fluid meeting MS-11655
p/n 68065924AA

Alternative is: PENTOSIN CHF 11S
(they even cross reference mopar 68065924AA in their spec sheet)

I find Mopar fluid pretty difficult to source online. The mopar parts retailers online have it for $12-13 a quart but then add $15 shipping. Of course you can't buy it from Mopar's own website

Pentosin is available on amazon for 20 bucks shipped.
Be very careful about not using the Mopar power steering fluid as normal power steering fluid can destroy the seals in the electric steering rack which is then a very expensive repair
