Cardone Power Steering Filter

Article written by Moab Man

Date Added: 10/21/2007

A vehicle?s power steering is not a system we commonly associate with filtering? until contaminants destroy your power steering pump or gearbox.

Think about what is going on under your Jeep?s hood. All the off-road dirt and mud cover everything in your engine bay and work their way into every nook and cranny. This includes your power steering system.
Having recently witnessed the horrific death of a power steering pump and gearbox, we decided to try out the Cardone Power Steering Filter. We picked ours up at Autozone, but many parts stores stock this filter.
Installation is simple, but a bit messy. The power steering return line needs to be disconnected from the reservoir. Since you?re in there anyway, now you may as well change the power steering fluid at the same time (which is not a bad idea on its own).
Once the line is disconnected, the filter is inserted into the return line hose with the forked end toward the reservoir.

The other end of the filter tube is open to allow the fluid to enter the filter tube, pass through the filter screen, and into the reservoir.

Once the filter is in the line, reconnect the return line to the reservoir.

Final Thoughts

The filter screens out particles down to 200 microns, and at a cost of $2 this little tube filter is well worth the investment.

If you?re still on the fence, the Cardone Power Steering Filter has a lifetime warranty.

Our Thank You's!
