When flushing a power steering system or replacing a power steering pump you should be thinking, "What type of fluid should I use in my power steering system?" You might think "Power steering fluid, of course!" Not necessarily so. The fact is, OEs recommend many different types of fluids for use in power steering systems.  
 
Through CARDONE’s research on alldatapro.com and other industry sources, they came up with a recommended fluid list to help "steer" you in the right direction. See the list below.

Obviously Jerome has never used Alldata or Oreillys Version properly. Having worked for both of those retailers and dealing with the garages that use both versions it save time and money on possible errors and the Installer know whta they are getting before they make that call.
