Is PAS fluid the same as ATF? I asked for some PAS fluid and the chap gave me ATF fluid saying to me its the same stuff just a few quid cheaper?

The PAS fluid in the 110 is green and the ATF is red.

I think green is mineral based oil, red isn't and you're not supposed to mix them, as red will damage the seals in a mineral based system.

Shocked

I would say 'no' and stick to green, as you still have all the pipework and pump that's unchanged and designed for the green stuff.

According to the Haynes book its Dexron II and in the motor factors they have Dexron II but its red (or at least it looks red in the tub)

I changed the PAS fluid when I did the steering box and all is good so far.

Check with the Difflock shop - they know what they are doing and if they get it wrong you can always blame them. And of course you can buy the oil from them.
