What's going on everybody...

I'm looking for some insight/guide on flushing my power steering fluid on my 09 RT? And what kind of fluid is everyone using to replace it?:scratchhead:

I have a turkey baster I use to suck as much out as I can out of the reservoir at every oil change. I replace it with Mopar power steering fluid I get from the dealer.

No quite sure how to flush the entire system all at once but I suspect you would have to remove a hose and use an electric pump to pump fresh fluid trough the system. Seems like a big hassle.

I also use starburst's turkey baster method in my Mopars.
Suck out as much PS fluid as you can, refill, then start car and turn wheel lock-to-lock a few times to work out air bubbles. Do it a couple times and you should be good to go. You'll be surprised how dirty the old fluid is.
'09 factory spec is Mopar PS+ or ATF+4 fluid.
Spec for the 2014 is Fuchs or Pentosin German synthetic fluid, so they must have switched to a MB PS pump.

Where is the power steering cap located?

I have a 2012 R/T and I don't see the powering steering reservoir cap anywhere. Can somebody tell me where it is located?

On 2011 and newer R/T's the power steering pump is electric, the pump sits under the fluid reservoir which is located on the passenger side under the windshield wiper fluid tank. You can't really see the cap from above, here is a pic of the tank after removing the fender liner, this was taken from another site.
