quick question i want to replace my power steering fluid but i guess you have to use PSF3 or something and only the dealer has it. I would hate to drive 20 miles just to get fluid so i did some research and saw that Valvoline Max High Mileage was similar to it. Is this true? I would hate to put in wrong fluid

The later models use the PSF-IV standard, which is a synthetic product. Your owners manual states PSF-III, which is is just the standard power steering fluid stuff. It's also equivalent to Dexron III ATF fluid. It's either red or clear in color.

When my '04 was leaking last spring the book at Napa said to use SPIII transmission fluid which the dealer confirmed as correct. It struck me as odd but both Napa and the dealer told me it has superior lubricating properties over standard power steering fluid.
