Can any one tell me witch power steering oil to get for a fiat hymer 544
I use the red power steering oil in the Iveco which I believe is the same oil as for automatic transmissions...
I see one of your interests is spelling
It is general knowledge and totally accepted on Fun that spelling is not an issue...:Wink:
Martin (hayleylulu) has a unique and flowery spelling system... we all knew what he was asking though didn't we? :thumb:
PS. Quote from another post... Any recommendations........I’m in the market for a new phone. My ideal would be a phone that would replace my dongle to use for laptop web access, good camara,
Glass houses hey!
I get power steering oil from the local Halfords for our van - Boxer 2 litre. It's red as JJ mentioned.
Martin, typically Dextron 2 is the stuff, handbook should confirm (if you have), and as per above, it's red and used in auto transmissions too.
My excuse is that I am shit at spelling yet camera would not normally be a problem. :Cool: I add to that one of my pet hates is clever Dickies who pick others up on their spelling.
It did tickle my fancy though as the only interest was listed as spelling. Witch prompted my post.oh:
Now all you clever Dickies who have nothing better to do all day than sit there adding THANKS or LIKE to other posts can get unsticking
any of these as they all do same job.
ATF or TQF
Both are automatic transmission fluids and are used for power steering systems,
normaly dark red in colour.
I apologise... at first glance it looked as though Martin was getting grief for his spelling (again)... :Blush:
thanks for reminding me to thank JJ ... :Wink:
PS.. Nice try ...
If your exsisting fluid is Pinky red or if old, browny red you can go with the info as above.
If its any other colour/clear re post with info on the vehicle year enge size etc
Its not safe these days to generalise with so many specific fluids in use
The handbook for my Hymer S700 Mercedes 410D specifies:
PAS 1.6 litres (Dexron II-D ATF fluid)
Martin find your engine and year here and if it works it should tell you
i agree with Geo, dextron 11/ATF is a general fluid but not suitable for all applications.
just like brake fluid...put the wrong DOT type in and you need a whole new set of seals.
