My '09 (4.0 V6) has around 56-57K miles on it. When doing the seat belt bolt recall work at the dealer, they wanted to flush/replace the steering fluid for $99.00, saying it was very dark.
1.) Is this a good age/mile mark to do this job?
2.) Can I do a reasonably good job myself draining (turkey baster), running, and refilling a few times, or is it significantly better to have them do it?
3.) If I do, what fluid should I buy for this vehicle?
Also, is this a good time to bleed/flush/replace brake fluid?
