No, do not use clutch or brake fluid in your steering.
ATF used to be used in Power Steering many Years ago, but it is very high in detergents where Modern Power Steering fluid is not so .
If you can get the correct power steering fluid this would be best (consult your owners manual),but I have seen some customers that have use ATF in there steering for years will no ill effect, but I wouldn't advise it.
Please leave fair comment if I have helped you.

SOURCE: Brake fluid
DOT 4 has a higher boiling point than DOT 3 and has less affinity (liking) to moisture. If rallying or using brakes a lot for an extended ammount of time then DOT 4 If normal driving DOT 3 is sufficient.

Testimonial: "yes thank you"
Do not use DOT 3 brake fluid in a power steering pump. It will eat away all of the seals and hoses. If you are looking at power steering fluid, any power steering fluid will work. If we are talking about brake fluid, Then yes use DOT 3 brake fluid or DOT 4 break fluid. The top of the master cylinder should tell you which to use.
