Re: Power Steering Cooler
I think you're drawing a flawed conclusion from the data you gathered and from what Redline told you. Just like the engine, transmission, and diff fluids, keeping the PS fluid cool is going to keep the fluid happy longer. Our engine oil doesn't start boiling until about 600F, too, but that doesn't mean I'd be happy rolling around with temps even half that high. Hell, I'm not happy that my screwed up oil temp sensor shows I'm at 260F!
