i have a 96 grand caravan and i need to replace the power steering pressure hose because the old one is already leaking. since i am there i want to flush and replace it with a new PSF. i cannot find a mopar ms-5931 fluid on any of those chrysler/dodge/jeep parts shop in binondo so i went to the mall and i found a castrol gt power steering fluid. it is printed on its specs label :
Castrol GT Power Steering Fluid exceeds performance requirements for:
Saginaw Pump, GM9985010 (Part No. 1050017 and 1052884)
Chrysler MS-5931 (Hydroboost systems)
AMC 4060 (Part No. AM 8993342)
Saab (Part No. 45-30 09-800)
Volkswagen TL-VW-570-26 (Part No. ZVW 239-902)
there is also a Cyclo Power Steering Fluid that have on the label :
Meets service requirements of GM, Ford, Chrysler, and most imports
though it doesnt say MS-5931.
are these two safe to use or should i go to a Chrysler dealer and buy the Mopar MS-5931 fluid with an overbloated price tag ? havent asked the dealer yet though how much it cost or if it is on stock because new models now uses the tranny fluid ATF+4.....
