no, the intermediate steering shaft is completely independent of the power steering fluid operation. Make sure that when you remove the shaft, you DO NOT move the steering wheel. The clockspring inside the wheel is very easily damaged.

no, I don't see why.

Yes, power steering fluid is very harmful to an automatic transmission. You should not drive it until the fluid is changed.Yes, power steering fluid is very harmful to an automatic transmission. You should not drive it until the fluid is changed.

Dark fluid means it's dirty and needs replacing.

A power steering fluid leak is most often repaired by replacing the damaged seals or hoses. These trouble spots allow fluid to freely leak from the system.

Power steering box... Steering fluid level low,dirty or needs replacing... If power steering fluid is white then your box is damaged...

Typically if your power steering fluid is low your car will make noise when you turn the wheel. If this is that case, I suggest taking your vehicle to an auto shop and have them do a power steering fluid check.

The squeaking of a steering column can usually be fixed by adding power steering fluid. It can also be fixed by replacing the belt in the car.

yes it does, as every other fluid does to. it does lose it's optimum lubrication and cleaning agents which can cause power steering pump and rack premature failure. it should be changed as regularly as every 30-40,000km

Fill your power steering fluid. When you get low it will start to whine. Do this as quickly as possible, because replacing a power steering pump is not fun.

If it is a V6 at 110,000 miles the cam belt and water pump should have been changed. This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. If you have not had the belt replaced STOP driving the car until you can get this done. The belt can break at any moment. On a V6 & 4 cylinder, you also need to have the transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid changed. The coolant needs replacing and thermostat needs replacing. Spark plugs and plug wires need replacing. Air & cabin filter need replacing every 30,000 miles. All suspension and steering parts need inspected and replaced as necessary. More than likely the struts need replacing. The exhaust system should be inspected. Of course the brake system should be inspected and repaired if necessary.

Basically its like changing the oil in the motor. Just to extend the life of the steering system

You can convert manual to power steering on a 1969 Camaro. the steering box will need to be changed, and a pump and brackets as well as fluid lines will need to be added.

Remove the plug on the bottom of the power steering fluid pump. Drain the power steering fluid out. Replace the plug to the bottom of the power steering pump. Replace the power steering fluid.

also, check your power steering fluid levels. The noise you hear is the fuel pump.

The power steering fluid recommended is Mopar

Are your belts loose? Did you double check your fluid level?
