    Do you use reg power steering fluid or hydraulic fluid? I am changing my pump and if I need to run Hydraulic fluid instead of power steering fluid, now is the time to change.


    Please reply.

    Thanks

    I run GM approved steering fluid. I use to run ATF but after burning up a 350$ high psi Howe pump I switched to what Howe recomends, no problems sense.
