Whats the proper fluid for 05 4.6 power steering unit ? I see the fluid while engine is bouncing up and down a little so looking closer i see a min and max line..seems to be bout 1" below min. dont want to put wrong stuff in..thanx
I keep mine between the min/max line when its is hot. About every other oil change I use a suction gun to remove as much as I can get out and top it off with fresh fluid. I am not sure but the recommended fluid may be regular Mercon But I prefer Mercon V because it is synthetic.
+1 on removing some fluid from power steering at oil changes. I bought a turkey baster for $1.25 and i use that you can attach a hose to the end of the baster and get it down to the bottom of the pump to suck even more out.
my man states mercon..no V after it..reads ok for power steering but mercon V for tranny required..now im wondering as i put in just mercon no mercon V
Nothings ever easy with newer trucks..gimme back my 86 f-150 4x4 anyday..$11,000 delivered
dont mix mercon and mercon V very boldly in my manual..i guess warning more for trannys than power steering..somebody posted above stating mixing the two was ok, as one was synthetic..(why do i hear a ching ching noise)
