Has anyone done the service for the Electronic power steering? Dealer sold me some power steering fluid for electric power steering pumps. 🤨 I’m about to hit 80k on my 19 Laramie 4x4 5.7. This hog tows my 13k toy hauler.

Did they grease your muffler bearings? They are often overlooked. Curious as to where you add power steering fluid on this gen, must be next to the transmission dipstick I can't find

There is such a thing, but its for the new jeeps, not our trucks https://store.mopar.com/oem-parts/mopar-power-steering-fluid-68088485ab
That’s what I thought. Going back today to raise hell. I’m going to leave a Yelp review. That sucks there jacking ppl like that. Not cool. I’m use to helping clients. Not jack them. Hopefully someone knows about the electrical power steering. YouTube stops at 2018 4th gen. I think I’m going to put out a video. Thanks for the laughs guys. This forum is just like the raptor forum. Bunch of jokesters.

That is electric power steering fluid. I guess the jeep uses it to lubricate something, i don’t know what kinda of unit it uses. But it’s not the same as the ram.

I wouldn't be too hard on them - they just pitch what they've been told and often don't understand the different nuances between models. A Chevy dealer once tried to convince my buddy that he was *way* overdue for an oil change and serpentine belt for his... electric... Bolt.

As far as forums go, it usually helps to do some research in advance. "Has anyone done this?" will get different answers than "I was sold part xxx-xx-xxx for my power steering, but it doesn't appear to be serviceable and the part doesn't show my truck as compatible - am I right to return it, or is there a procedure?"

...and then there's the issue of this being a truck forum. I'm generally not on here unless I need to be. The forum for my track car did an in-depth analysis on OE vs aftermarket valve shims, meanwhile this forum tends to be more about how to remove fuel economy features which then devolves into presidential manipulation of gas prices. There's some useful info, you just have to lower your expectations a bit.

Your truck tows a 13k toy hauler? You were fine with who sold you that set up?

The Ram 1500 engine line up has self adjusting hydraulic liftes, no need to shim the valves

I'm not tracking the truck...

I do love that I'm explaining how truck forums require lowered expectations and the reply is someone who didn't bother to read carefully, though 😂
