SOURCE: Steering gear fluid capacity and type of manual trasmission fluid?

Hello Dave,
I own a 1988 Ram 50 5-Standard and will go off my own experiences to answer this question.
I use a synthetic 80W transmission fluid.
If you know what is/was already in there; my recommendation is not to change the grade of oil in the transmission unless it is necessary because of driving conditions or vechicle requirements (i.e. towing/hauling/efficiency).
Anyway the Ram 50 Manual 4 & 5 Speed transmissions take a range of fluid grades from 70W-90W. You can use this in both conventional and synthetic oils.

For the power steering, universal power steering fluid works the best, and I honestly don't know the exact amount to put in Ram 50, but may I suggest you purchase ~20oz. Fill it half with half the bottle, then check the dipstick, then put in half of that half-bottle (a quarter of the bottle in), check, and repeat until you get it to the appropriate level.

Automatic depends on why it's being added. If bone dry try 8 quarts and check. Always check warm in no gear, if you can't be carefullllll not to over fill. Atf +4 is what dodge automatic. take

Power steering leak


Make sure it's power steering fluid and not oil. The turbo has nothing to do with the power steering. If it is a power steering leak, it could be anywhere in the system. Someone will have to look over the system to find the leak.

1999 Chevy Malibu is leaking power steering fluid why


Hello, this can caused by several thing, the power steering pump may be leaking, the stering gear leaking, or one of the power steering hoses. you will need to make a visual inpection of these parts and see if you see fluid leaking out. the teo most common areas are, the power steering pressure hose and the steering gear mounted under the vehicle on the frame

My power steering fluid is leaking, i fill it up and it all leaks out does this mean the the hose is busted or the power steering gear is no good, yet when i fill it back up with power steering fluid it...


The most common cause is a leak in the power steering line. With someone sitting in the car,(and the car running) watch the power steering line and ask them to turn the wheel in both directions. A leak in the power steering line will spurt fluid during this exercise whereas a leak in the power steering unit itself would tend to ooze fluid due to less pressure.

Leaking oil front right of engine 323i 2000?


This could be power steering fluid...a common leak on all BMW's or an upper valve cover gasket leak.

The hoses on the power steering are clamped with a ring clamp and the rubber shrinks slightly and fluid leaks out. You can replace all those clamps with conventional Hose Clamps from your parts store. The power steering oil reservoir has a lower hose from it which commonly leaks.

It leaks onto the coolant hose running below it and the coolant hose eventually splits, discharging all the coolant.

If it is the cam cover gasket, this involves a little more work. The gasket is available from you dealer or parts house.

Seems like the power steering pumpis leaking, I have fluid below the truck and allover the top of the steering g ear box, cannot tellif it is leaking from the pump or the lines, I tried putting in Lucas...


If this is around a 1999 F150, it is the Power Steering line going to the front steering oil cooler. There is a plastic clip which holds the line against the frame. Apparently it is a common problem. The plastic part seems to hold road salt and moisture against the metal and it corrodes.

Change the line out or at least take it off and inspect it.

2001 dodge 2500 diesel oil leak in front of power


The power steering pump is piggie backed to the vacuum pump. The seal in the back of the vacuum pump has engin oil under presure behind it cousing a leak that gets worse over time. Cummins make a seal kit to fix this leak.

1999 dodge diesel 2500 seems to have a fuel related problem.


Please clarify the "loosing power" does it lose power and shut down or does it loose power but will idle? Your Cummins is electronically controlled so oil condition is important, fuel leaks, oil leaks, leaks in the air ducting between the turbo and the intake, sensors, water in the fuel. Do you get an engine light when this trouble happens? Dodge uses a lift pump to carry fuel to the the injection pump, is it working?

Oil leak


There's not much over there that can leak except for the filter. That diesel oil is heavy and persistent too. It'll drip from those steering linkages forever after a filter change. Check your turbo fittings too. It gets oil and then sends it back to the motor.
