I have a question about The Power Steering Fluid on a 2002 Ford Taurus SES.
When I opened up the power steering fluid ... I noticied it was Red Power Steering fluid. I went to autozone ... tried to find Motorcraft (which is whats listed in my drivers manual) .... wasnt there... So I bought Valvoline (Which stated its good for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury velichles), which is a clear liquid.
Today I checked my Power Steering fluid... I was very low... and since the mechanic replaced my power steering components (The Old one broke - Original factory part - 7 years
long run) ... I didnt want to damage the system, so I put in The Valvoline in... The clear liquid mixed with the red and it dilluted the red.
Did I do something wrong? Will this damage my engine?
