Even though the pumps didn't change and holden have been using the same pumps with DEX3 with no issue. The ford Type F fluid will some times help with steering shudder.

Some people would be shocked to know that the special fluid is only tractor transmission fluid.
I buy it in 5L bottles from Fuchs, works out hell cheaper then buying 1L bottles of 'special' power steering fluid.

I dont know if some douche put dex iii in their instead of the proper fluid,


Dex 3 is pretty much the same thing as the "proper fluid". It's all gear oil.

Just like you can use brake fluid as clutch fluid, it's still hydraulic fluid.

I've run Dex 3 in a reco Power steering pump from repco since install and never had an issue, it seems it is a pretty wide use fluid too because it's what I run in my T5 too, according to the factory recommendations.
