    I've had this happen at crawl speed in parking lots when making a hard turn. No very often, but it feels like steering a manual wheel for a second. Hasn't happened lately though.

    Noticed this as well. The power assist seems to crap out at sharp left just before lockout

    Thanks ResumeSpeed I will add this to the Service Bulletin section of the WIKI. Do you know what that label says that gets put on the underside of the hood?

    I'm assuming it's instructions to use the new fluid part no. instead of the ATF+4 but don't know for sure...

    A little Googling and it looks like the Mopar MS-10838 may be rebottled Pentosin CHF 11S. Must be residual influence from Diameler... The Germans love Pentosin CHF 11S. It's good stuff so if this is correct the replacement fluid is probably a step up.
