HI,

Sorry, my computer locked up on me.

I only use Valvoline ATF, so yes, I would strongly recommend this one for yours

Where and how can I access the return hose of the power steering system to drain the power steering fluid? Is it a time consuming job to do? Is it difficult?

Let me pull the diagram to check

Hi,

From underneath the vehicle - see attached

I am a bit confused by the illustration since it is difficult for me to determine with side is the right side or then left side or the forward side of the vehicle. I just don't want to disconnect the wrong hose. Do I need to bring out the underneath plastic cover to access the return hose and the transmission drain and fill plugs??

I have to run some hay out to my horses but will be back in about 1/2 hour in case you have a further followup. If you dont, have a great weekend

Ask Your Own Jeep Question

It is on the passenger side.

Yes, you will want to drop the undercover splash shield to access them

Ask Your Own Jeep Question

you will reach up from behind the engine subframe on the passenger side to disconnect it.
