Chevy Malibu Questions
I have a 98 Chevy Malibu which after checking the power steering level this weekend I noticed it being a bit low. The trip to the local auto parts store turned up negative on the purchase of a pint / quart of "power steering fluid". One interesting comment that I received from the attendant was that this unit is Korean made and probably uses "Honda" fluid. There is a listing for "PS" fluid in the Quaker State book but short of going to a GM dealer (just can bring my self to getting dragged over the hot coals), does anyone know if this is true? Any response would be appreciated.

This is the recommended fluids for your vehicle.
GM Power Steering Fluid (GM P/N 1052884 - 1 pint or 1050017 - 1 quart, or equivalent). In cold climates use (GM P/N 12345866 - one pint, GM P/N 12345867 - one quart, or equivalent).
NOTE: The system should be flushed and bled prior to switching fluid types.
1 - buy any aftermarket power steering fluid which states the following on the label: meets or exceeds GM 9985010, Chrysler MS-5931, Ford M2C-128D, AMC 4060, Volkswagen TL-VW-570-26
2 - go to ANY GM dealer and buy power steering fluid
