I have found a couple older manuals that specify "PSF-3, ATF Dexron II type fluid". This seems to indicate that PSF-3 and Dexron II are interchangeable. Please see the attached image of the lube chart from a 99 Sonata manual. Also in an online service manual for 1998-2000 Tiburons found here: http://www.newtonnet.co.uk/coupe/service/w...id=12802#_12802 it only mentions Dexron II.
However in my 2003 manual it only lists PSF-3. How could it be the same as Dexron III in 1999 but a few years later it is not?! Maybe it is just Hyundai attempting to force owners to purchase their fluid?
Does anyone have a definitive answer on what power steering fluid besides PSF 3/ PSF III or PSF 4 we can use?
No Hyundai dealers in my area sell the PSF 3 or 4. I have read on several posts that some people have used Dexron II/III automatic transmission fluid.
I have an 03 Tiburon GT V6. The original power steering fluid does have a reddish/pinkish brown color making me lean towards the automatic transmission fluid hypothesis.
Does anyone know for sure?
