What kind of power steering fluid goes in a 2004 Pontiac grand prix?

Power steering fluid purchased directly from the dealer specifically for your vehicle in order to guarantee the proper fluid application. However, the power steering fluid made by Prestone, Valvoline, Pennzoil, or any of the generic brands generally are applicable in General Motors vehicles. Be sure that the back of the bottle says "Approved for use in GM vehicles." On a side-note, do not use the same power steering fluid in German or Japanese cars, or for that matter, some older Fords before checking - some Hondas require a special fluid, some Toyotas and older Fords require ATF for power steering, and Audis require a dealer-only fluid. In any case, the generic or name brand power steering fluid at the local auto parts store should meet the GM requirements. Hope this helps!
