'05 Dodge Ram Power Steering Leak
I have a Ram 1500 w/ a hemi. Once again, the weather has began to get cold so it's leaking power steering fluid again. I've heard this is notorious for Dodge, but is there a fix for this that anyone knows of? Thanks!

It is leaking from the gearbox. I'm told that it was a bad design, cold temps cause fluid to get past an o-ring.

Also, it has a cooler under the radiator. Thank you

Does anyone else have this issue?

RE: '05 Dodge Ram Power Steering Leak
Im my experience it usually leaks from the return line at the reservoir. The Chrysler pt# is 55366796ac and consists on the line from the reservoir to the ps cooler and the line from the rack to the cooler. There is a new style clamp the comes with the lines. The upper clamp at the reservoir is usually loose allowing fluid to escape. Check it out, it is worth it to check anyway.
