Just look for a power steering fluid bottle that has "Chrysler" on it. Usually says "Recommended for" or some variant of that. Just avoid the bottles that say "stop leak".

If you have any questions, ask the parts counter guy. He can look up recommended fluids.

Power steering fluid really isn't that expensive. I just recently replaced both my power steering pump and the steering rack and I used less than two bottles. Why not just get it from the dealer?? Then you don't have to worry what that fluid that they say will work "for all chrysler vehicles" is going to do to the power steering system. Just like you don't use the any makes any model coolant in our Jeeps. It requires a special HOAT coolant. Again not expensive from the dealer
