IMPROPERLY INSTALLED POWER STEERING HIGH-PRESSURE HOSE CAUSES FIRE

Did you know that 9 out of 10 vehicle fires, that are not intentionally set, result from improper service or repair?

This is true, according to Lee Cole, the pioneer and industry-acknowledged master of vehicle fire investigation (now deceased). And did you know that power steering fluid has a lower ignition temperature (catches fire at a lower temperature) than gasoline?

Case In Point: A 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser caught fire and burned only three days after the power steering high-pressure hose was replaced at a local dealership. Turns out the service tech forgot to properly tighten the connector, and the leaking fluid ignited on the nearby exhaust manifold!
