Default TSB on Power Steering fluid?

Anyone know if this is an actual TSB?
Is there a particular reference number?
Thanks.

Dunno what you are refering to. Tranny takes ATF4 or ATF5 ONLY.[:I]

I haven't seen the TSB but the service manager at my Chrysler dealer mentioned this to me. He said that the ATF was now being used to replace the Power Steering fluid.

Thanks.
I made an appointment to have it checked out.
Car runs and turns fine, but I hear that sound whenever it's running for a while and I hold the wheel in a turn.
Guess I'll have to remove my Stage 1 emblem from my car too.

This bulletin is supplied as technical information only and is not an authorization for repair.
SUBJECT:

So the TSB is actually a different hose? [:I] AND they replace power steering fluid with ATF? So far, so good on mine - 72,000+ miles.
