Power Steering Fluid Leak

428 Views 16 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Charger Red
I have a 2013 Dodge Charger RT that has a power steering fluid leak. $200 paid to the dealership to investigate the leak and they said the power steering pump needs to be replaced. Their estimate was about $2000 to get it done. I investigated where the leak was coming from afterwards and located the exact location. In the pic, the green fluid shows exactly where the leak is coming from. Does anybody know what that part is called that is connected to the pump where it is leaking, and does this warrant the entire power steering pump to be replaced? Looking for a ram in the bush on this one. Any info would be great! If it’s a simple less expensive fix, that would make my day. …Thanks in advance, fam.

Since I've never seen it, I don't know if the factory PS fluid is normally green? Since the '14 and older R/T's had the NAG1 trans, we can eliminate trans fluid. Next up, would be an A/C system leak looking green from the dye.
Did the dealer put the dye in in their quest for the leak source?
BTW, I think you can get rebuilt pumps for under $1k.

Ok on the factory PS fluid being green. Be careful on the servicing, as I recall that air in the system can quickly ruin it if not removed properly asap.

Apparently, another instance where the dealer service folks did not want to drill down and diagnose, and instead replace the expensive pump on your dime. Shame on them!!!!!!
