Dexron II® Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) or its superceding fluid is recommended for the power steering pump.
- Drive the vehicle several miles to raise the power steering system up to normal operating temperature.
- Park the vehicle on a level surface and stop the engine.
- Remove the level gauge, wipe it clean, then reinsert it fully.
- Remove it again and read the level at the HOT side of the gauge. If the fluid reading is at the lower level or below, add the recommended power steering fluid until it reaches the upper mark.
