what type of transmission fluid and power steering fluid should i use on my car? also if im putting in new transmission fluid, should i do a transmission fluid wash, is that nessasery since i dont know what exact oil was used before? -
Answer 1
you need to use fluid part # 1161540 or trans fluid Mobil 3306 or the equivalent. As far as power steering fluid, use pentosin chf 202. Yes, I'd recommend that you do a complete transmission fluid flush so all old fluid gets removed and replaced with new. -
