steering fluid for 2000 Passat
« on: March 26, 2006, 03:49:39 PM »
Ok, my steering fluid is low, and the manual calls for mineral hydraulic fluid.  Does this mean I can't use the STP generic fluid found at all the gas stations?  What fluid is ok?  Is all steering fluid "mineral"?

Thanks Randy.  I picked up some Lucas power steering fluid, and I'll see if I can figure out if I've got a leak and where it is.  Maybe I'll see you later this week.

Really appreciate the quick response.
