    correct type of power steering fluid

    hi guys

    I've been trying to find out what kind of power steering fluid to use on my 99 Seville, is a good old ATF Dextron III an option, or should it be something else?

    The owners manual refer to an GM oil that I probably can't get hold of anyway, so I'm curios on the spec for the proper product

    thanks

    It's clear/light amber P/S fluid, not any sort of ATF.

    Look on the parts store shelves for a P/S fluid approved by GM - many brands to choose from - it's all a 5W hydraulic fluid.

    Not sure what your options are in Sweden, but auto parts stores sell Power Steering Fluid.
    Back in the day, we used to use ATF, and I think it's still an option...it's only a hydraulic oil.

    Thanks for the input guys

    I found a product GMC 19329450 (that replaces GMC 89021184, 1052884 and 12353833) which seems as it could be the right one.

    There is also an Opel dealership nearby that might carry what I need , they are not GM anymore but I guess they don’t mind continue selling parts when they can
