it can damage the power steering system.
Specifically, dont use mitsu ATF 3. There may be aftermarket fluids that are compatable, but I wouldnt recommend anything but approved mitsu power steering fluid.


mitsu has specifically said many times that you should not use their trans fluid in their power steering systems.
