mobilfluid 424 is a hydraulic oil that is not suitable for auto trans systems therefore it is not compatible with dextron based products. IIRC the spec was changed to mobilfluid 424 to reduce pump wear and noise.

You will need to be absolutely sure you have a dextron based fluid in the PS before topping it up with the castrol fluid you have bought. Otherwise you will need to do a full flush of the PS.

ok then, how would you go about flushing the power steering system to go from dex 3 to 424?


i'd also like to know if there is a procedure to follow.

when i chenaged the ps fluid when the car was bought i just syphoned the ps pump and topped it off, and repeated 4 times with week inbeteen each change.
