Power Steering Fluid Type

Hi all, I normally hang in the 7.3 SD section, but have a friend with a 1993 f250 with the 351 in it.

My question, is what fluid does the power steering unit take on that truck? I know my SD diesel takes ATF, but have no idea on that one.

Thanks for any help, Tom

All Fords take Type "F" ATF.

You don't even have to use Type F if you don't want to. Any old ATF will do. Type F is getting pretty hard to find these days.

The 1995 owners manual still calls for Type "F".
Off the shelf Power Steering Fluid will make a Ford pump make noise.

Agreed with Subford, "steering fluid" is bad for the pumps. Dex/Merc-III works decent tho.
