I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 (3.5L V6) that needs power steering fluid. However, I do not know what type is compatible with my vehicle.
My manual simply says:
GM Power Steering Fluid (GM Part No. U.S. 98021184, in Canada 89021186)
So what type of PS fluid is compatible??
I called Autozone and they said there was no information on file for a 2007 Pontiac G6 and recommended that I look online.
What "type" of PS fluid does my 2007 G6 use? (i.e., I need more than a part #)?
- For exmaple, my car takes DEXRON VI transmission fluid -- is there a similar general type/name of PS fluid I can look for across brands?
I can't find GM part# 89021184 for purchase and can only find 89021185 -- Are these compatible? What's the difference?
- The sites I link to above suggest conflicting reasons: some say the part numbers differ in size (i.e., fluid oz's) only, while others claim that that is wrong and that the part number has simply changed. Are either correct?
Also, what non-GM brand PS fluid works in my 2007 G6?
Again, the sites I link to provide inconsistent info, so I'm looking for something more definitive (and preferably supported with reputable source info).
