    Default power steering fluid

    The instructions for the power steering system on our race car states not to
    use ATF but only gives a GM Goodwrench part number for the fluid to use.
    The OE fluid in Toyotas power steering is oil coloured and obviously not ATF.
    Is there someone who works in a Toyota service department that can tell me what Toyota use.Is it a light hydraulic oil from a oil company or does it come in a Toyota labelled
    bottle like Toyota coolant or what?

    Dealers, in my experience (N.A.) use Dexron as a replacement for the original fluid.

    This is also what is specified in the Owners Manual.
