Discussion:

The factory fill power steering fluid was or will be changed for some 2001 and 2002 model year vehicles. The new fluid is ATF+4 (MS9602) and it provides superior performance at both low and high end temperatures. Refer to the table to identify factory fill and the approved service power steering fluid by year and model. Note that ATF+4 (MS9602) is Red in color and MS5931 and MS9933 are Amber/Yellow in color. All three fluids will darken in color with usage and fluid color is no longer an indication of fluid condition.

The part numbers for ATF+4 are 05013457AA (quart) and 05013458AA (gallon).

ATF+4 is compatible with other Chrysler approved power steering fluids, but to avoid confusion due the fluid color difference, ATF+4 should not be mixed or used as a "topping off" fluid on systems requiring MS5931 or MS9933. On some past models, ATF+4 should be used as the replacement fluid. On these models, if a steering system is being serviced that results in a large fluid loss, such as a pump, hose or gear/rack replacement, the complete system should be drained and filled with ATF+4 (MS9602).

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES OWNER'S AND SERVICE MANUALS FOR THE VEHICLES LISTED ABOVE THAT MAY STATE TO USE MS5931 OR MS9933 IN THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM, AND THAT MAY STATE NOT TO USE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID (ATF+4) IN THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM.
