Not exactly a technical reply, but our customers seem to chuck
anything in with ATF on the tin! I'm not saying that's
the correct thing to do.
Actually, I've just had a thought. My 110 has 239,000 miles
on the clock now and the power steering systems has *never*
leaked (it's bone dry in all the usual leaky places), and
has never even been topped up. I wonder, could that be
significant - after all it still has the original Land Rover
fluid it it......... hmmmmmmmmmm?
