dumb ? is 89 some where in the book or is that best guess? for gas.

Makers of the "Original Honeycomb" & "True SRT" grilles for your SE,SXT or RT. Custom made grilles for your SRT Magnum also.
ya thanks I told ya it was a dumb ? I just got in from outside and I looked it up. oh well . I'll take 1 for the team .
Has anyone changed their transmission fluid?
I'm thinking about going with Royal Purple's MAX ATF
However, they only list GM or Ford tranny fluids (DEXRON or MERCON) for replacement.
I like the idea of the tranny running cooler.
Anyone in the know, please comment.

My experience with Chrysler Transmissions suggests you can use only two fluids. ATF+4 from Chrysler (or Valvoline I think makes it now too), or Amsoil Universal ATF which is ATF+4 service rated.
I've not replaced mine yet at 30K, but when I do it will probably be with the usual Amsoil ATF that I use. I have 82K troublefree miles in my 300M using this fluid and this is in the notoriously fluid sensitive 4 speed auto trans that came in all LH platform cars and some of the V6 LX cars.

Fnkychkn, or whomever --
can we get the original post updated to include 6.1L fluids?
I guess the 6.1 wasn't out yet when this was posted.
(I'm looking for the oil weight for my SRT8 --
don't have my manual here at the orifice)
Fnkychx or other knowledgeable:
Today I was at the dealer for a quick oil change on my 2006 RT Magnum. While waiting in the lounge - the service guy came in and talked to a lady about her oil change and included a discussion of "dirty power steering fluid and need to flush." Then - when I went to pick mine up I got the same pitch for my next trip.
Now in the '60s I knew a fair amount about cars and did all my own repairs. Over time the vehicles have become far more complex and I do very little myself. (The extra hundred pounds doesn't help either.) But I also don't think I got stupid just cause I got old. The power steering system is a closed system - it has no exposure to air nor any way I can imagine for it to get "dirty". Perhaps due to engine heat or design defects it could get overheated and thus become "burnt" or otherwise damaged by extreme heat - but the written report my dealer gave me with the $103 "Flush and Fill" estimate describes the issue as "found power steering fluid to be dirty/contaminated."
SO what is your view? A new profit center or is there a valid mechanical reason for the ATF in the PS reservoir to become contaminated or dirty?
Thanks guys - your help is phenominal for those of us who cannot quite keep up with the technology on these cars.

Highway fuel economy 26.5 MPG on the flat at 64 MPH - seems to be in good shape
Ask him why the hell he was looking at your power steering fluid :-P
Seriously - it should be good for lots and lots of miles before it needs changing. Dip your finger in the reservoir and see how it looks. If it looks OK, don't worry about it.
I DRINK ROYAL PURPLE! WHAT NOW?!

Is there a list of the capacities of our power steering system and brake master cylinder anywhere that can be added to this list?
I'm purchasing all the fluids before I do a full fluid change all around. About how much of each of those should I get?
