possible oil leak/ electro-power steering rack leaking
Well, went to check out under my car today for fun and do my tires pressures and discovered some stuff. I work as a technician for DCH Toyota so i have availability to a lift every day :) So i took a look under the hood to check my dipstick since i switched over to mobil1 full synthetic to check to see if i was burning any oil and it was perfect. Then in the corner of my eye i see that my Electro-Power steering fluid is quite low for a car with only 19,000 miles on it. I Lifted it in the air and took out my flashlight and quickly noticed that the rubber boots on the outer tie rod ends on the power steering rack were a tad wet compared to the rest. (Usually when i see a power steering rack leaking on the vehicles i service i notice the rubber boots are a little wet due to the inner seals of the rack leaking) I will post pictures up as soon as i can and i will be going to jeep this week. Also stated in the title, i noticed a little seepage from the motor near the oil pan. Going to have them check that out as well. Good thing i have the availability to a lift because if this was a normal consumer who doesn't see any drips on the driveway, guaranteed that the techs at jeep wouldn't say a thing about a leak under warranty.

There was a tsb out on the power steering rack 19-006-10,this was for leaking and a moan at pArking lot speeds.there is also a tsb for the prop shaft causing a shudder or vibration when comming to a stop 19-004-11.I had both of mine replaced thankfully I found a website that lists all tsbs for all grand Cherokees.the service department said they toped off my fluid after investigating my boot was wet on the passenger side so they replaced both,at the time they were trying to fix a moan in my front end.good luck
