Power steering

Ok so im asking this, worried to sound completely stupid but...

I was topping off my wiper fluid and decided to check the level of all my fluids. Coolant is getting close to the refill stage, once it does i will probably just do a flush and top it all of. Brake is good, just a little under mid level. But then i looked at the power steering and its completely empty. I dont have any steering issues nor stiffness. Also if it make any different the jeep is been sitting since yesterday so its cold.

Thanks for any help.

Have you considered searching this forum? I would normally provide a link to the lengthly discussion here, but today I'm lazy too.

And there is another one on page 3 of the Troubleshooting section titled "power steering all over the floor".

Re: Power steering

Not sure what your box is being held with the Panduit strap however, is there any signs of rubbing or damage to the PS system in that area after that install??
Just a thought..

Re: Power steering

All looks untouched. The wires around the area are from my HID resistor.

Now that im at work and had a few minuted to read, it seams to be pretty common issue. It just mysteriously disappears,, tomorrow morning i will check the boots by the steering shafts too. I don't want to go top it off before the dealer sees it. I will take it in on Monday or Tuesday.

Re: Power steering

And a big one in the Ecodiesel discussions where Jeep has coined in. It's also hard to find solutions when there are multiple repeat threads for the same issue. Which one has a solution or an explanation? There are "thousands" to choose from. Search helps us all stay focused and organized especially with issues.

Re: Power steering

Well since you seam very knowledgeable then you already know the answer for that, i will focus on fixing my particular individual issue and if any other forum member needs help, i will be happy to share with them my experience. I will leave the passive aggressive condescending comments to other bitter forum members that just want to cyber police people. Cool?
