Power Steering Fluid???
I've wanted to change my power steering fluid in my 07 V6 Frontier for some time now. However I can't seem to find the fluid I want to change it with. I've seen here on the forums and online that a Dexron III ATF (Mobil 1 brand) is recommended, but I can't find it anywhere. I've tried O'Riley/Kragen, Autozone and Walmart but they say they are no longer carrying Dexron III products, it is now Dex IV or V.
Now I was wondering if there are any new recommendations. Can I use a Dex IV or V fluid or should I try to find a Dex III? Would there be any problems mixing with my current fluid? I heard Royal Purple is good. Anybody recommend anything else? I was going to use the "Turkey Baster Method"
Also, right now the power steering fluid in my truck is a red-ish color, is that normal? Is it an ATF?
Thanks in advance!
