Hello,

I have been researching your concern and now have a bit of information for you...Let me know if you are missing any info or need an explanation of anything posted here...

I'm posting a document that lists all the correct fluids for your vehicle.

for power steering fluid the manufacturer recommends to use EITHER Mopar Power Steering Fluid+4 or ATF +4. Either fluid is acceptable per the manufacturer.

The person at the dealer was INCORRECT in stating that ATF +4 is not recommended.

See the following document near the bottom for notes on the use of ATF+4.
