Jeep Wrangler JK Driveway Power Steering Flush

All,
As my JK now has over 30K miles on it, it was time to flush the power steering system.

Here’s a video to see how I went about it.

Re: Jeep Wrangler JK Driveway Power Steering Flush

You do realize this is not a maintenance item even listed in the owner's manual and unless you were having issues with it - which then I would wonder why it's not handled under warranty - there's no reason to just change it out so early.

Re: Jeep Wrangler JK Driveway Power Steering Flush

i must say... i have owned 14 vehicles in my 51 years in this life and have never ever changed the ps fluid. my dad was a mechanic and owned his own shop, i never remember him doing it.. i grew up working after school and summers for him in the shop... dont think it was ever done... dont know why anyone would want to unless they had another issue that contaminated the fluid...

waste of time....

Because is his baby and he wants all fluids changed regularly?

This is no different than folks changing the oil every 3K miles when they can leave it for a lot longer with the oil quality we have today... it is a love thing for our mechanical toys...
