What power steering fluid is everyone using that used the GM accessories with there conversions? Since what I have read is GM uses synthetic power steering fluid and Jeep uses ATF+4. I used the ATF+4 in mine and have always had a slight whine, thought it was just the nature of the pump which has been on for 1 1/2 years.
During our Colorado adventure in Ouray a couple weeks ago it really started to whine, fluid is full at hot full and in between cold and hot when cold. At times it would get a heavy steering and then get as light as normal. It is burnt, stinks and it is pushing out the cap, lightly but it is dripping onto the front differential. Hoses are not kinked and do not appear to be collapsed. No cooler installed.
Thinking I will replace the pump and see what fluids are suggested and strongly looking at a cooler for it. Either a stand alone or maybe using the trans cooler in the condenser, if I don't end up using it for the trans along with the external cooler I have now.
Thoughts or suggestions?
