Hello Dave,
I own a 1988 Ram 50 5-Standard and will go off my own experiences to answer this question.
I use a synthetic 80W transmission fluid.
If you know what is/was already in there; my recommendation is not to change the grade of oil in the transmission unless it is necessary because of driving conditions or vechicle requirements (i.e. towing/hauling/efficiency).
Anyway the Ram 50 Manual 4 & 5 Speed transmissions take a range of fluid grades from 70W-90W. You can use this in both conventional and synthetic oils.

For the power steering, universal power steering fluid works the best, and I honestly don't know the exact amount to put in Ram 50, but may I suggest you purchase ~20oz. Fill it half with half the bottle, then check the dipstick, then put in half of that half-bottle (a quarter of the bottle in), check, and repeat until you get it to the appropriate level.

My owner's manual specified an automatic transmission fluid type for my power steering. Is this an error?


No, it's usual for power steering fluid to be the same as transmission fluid. they both are hydraulic type fluid with similar system requirements.

good luck

Audi A4 1.9 TDI power steering oil type and capacity


Power steering fluid level checking:
- vehicle stationary
- front wheels in straight ahead position
- engine at normal operating temperature
- remove cap with dipstick from expansion tank and wipe off
- reinstall cap with dipstick and remove again
- fluid level between "min" and "max" markings
- top off with G 002 000 hydraulic oil if necessary
Power steering system capacity is around 1 liter, but it is not necessary to periodic change the hydraulic oil!
If oil level has dropped to the "min" marking, check power steering system, including hoses and lines.
It is not enough simply to top off the hydraulic oil !!!

Fluid type


Manual transmissions and transaxles require light viscosity and low pressure fortified oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (MTF) has advanced additive technology that provides proper friction characteristics for smooth shifting without grinding. It also provides excellent bearing and gear protection. AMSOIL Synchromesh Transmission Fluid provides superior protection for manual transmissions copared to conventional lubricants, lasting up to four times longer under real road conditions

Correct! the term box (by pauldonp) was used instead transmission. I agree with given solution. It is important to maintain hydraulic fluid level between marks, when engine is at operating temperature and lever at position "P".
If there are fluid leaks must be repaired.
