Default Power steering fluid

I have an '01 PT Cruiser and I replaced the power steering high pressure hose but I might have to change the pump, too, because it's still whining. So, I need to replace the fluid but I need to know what kind and how much to put in?...

Welcome to the forum from Texas. Please go the new members section and tell us about yourself and your Cruiser.

When I replaced the pump on my '01, I used the +4 ATF. It took less than a quart.

+1 This is the ONLY thing I would use in the power steering of a PT Cruiser.
