Any Dexron spec ATF will do although Castrol was recommended originally. Mercedes also sells their own brand of power steering fluid.

My Nissan Maxima '92 leaks power steering fluid. I had someone look at it but they couldn't find the leak. I just put in new fluid every few weeks and it works fine but if there is an easy fix I would like to know.


if there is a leaking seal in the power steering rack and pinion or in the hydraulic pump, a power steering stop leak may swell the seal enough to stop the leak. if there is still a leak, it is likely a damaged / corroded line or fluid cooler. next time you need to top up your fluid, i recommend Lucas brand power steering stop leak / treatment. after a couple top ups it will stop the leak it if is a rubber seal problem. good luck!

leaking power steering fluid in 1999 Ford Taurus


no,no,no, all these products are supposed to do is help seals that have dried out, they do not fix worn or leaking hoses and seals

Need fluid specs/types


any of the generic PS fluids will work, avail from Kragen, Autozone etc., brake fluids, use DOT 4, oil, 10-30W, any name brand will fill the bill, Valvoline is my favorite followed by Castrol brand.
Ebay motors is a good source for an owners manual
