    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!

    is it leaking from the pump or steering gearbox? and does the truck have a factory power steering cooler (on 2nd gens its located UNDER the rad in front of the steering box)

    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.

    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.
