I would assume you will be buying a new transmission, only Transmission Fluid goes in the transmission.

Yes, automatic transmission fluid is the proper fluid for power steering systems. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ( MERCON ) automatic transmission fluid in a 1997 Ford Aerostar power steering

Yes it could. If you put power steering fluid in the transmission you need to change the transmission fluid.

No, you can't. You are suppose to put transmission fluid in power steering system.

no. No. They are for different purposes

both power steering fluid and transmission fluid are hydraulic fluids, but it would be best to get some power steering fluid. its cheap and its the right stuff. 91 buicks take just plain Jane power steering fluid.

My Ford Explorer takes automatic transmission fluid for the power steering fluid so I guess it would depend on what type of vehicle you have and what type of power steering fluid is supposed to be used

Oil, Antifreeze, Power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant...

According to the 1997 Ford Aerostar Owner Guide : ( Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid is used as the power steering fluid )

Since They Are Both Hydrolic fluids nothing will happen it will work normally for a short amount of time

Well that depends on the car. Some cars actually use automatic transmission fluid (ATF) as power steering fluid. Usually, the reservoir cap will say what type of fluid to use.

Your power steering will fail because brake fluid is poor lubricant.

Check transmission fluid and power steering fluid.

My brother is an Mercedes mecanic and he put transmission fluid in my power steering resivoir. That is what they use at the dearlship

All Ford Taurus power steering systems take MERCON V Transmission Fluid.

If any fluid except for the correct transmission fluid is put into the transmission of a car, it will eventually fail. If this happens, a person must flush the transmission of the car.

YES. your power steering pump is a hydraulic pump that pushes fluid through lines to make your wheels move. hydraulic fluid such as ATF or POWER STEERING FLUID is good for your power steering pump. it is a PUMP after all. OIL has the purpose of lubricating, and has very different qualities than hydraulic fluid. DO NOT put OIL in your power steering pump... put POWER STEERING FLUID or if you can't get power steering fluid AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID will do...

It really depends on the vehicle you put it in. ATF can sometimes "foam up" and cause air to get in the system. (PTB) To clarify: you may use ATF in some power steering, but do not even think about using power steering fluid in your transmission.

Nothing will happen that will harm the car. But the truth is that you have to watch driving and DO NOT BREAK at the last minute. This happen to me on more than one incident. Hope this helps

I have often used trans fluid as a cheaper than PS fluid substitute with out any problems.

Basically.................price!!! It's safe to use Trans Fluid for Power Steering Fluid, they are both hydraulic oil/fluids.........but make sure to check your owners manual.

what can happen to the transmission? Also is it possible to put fluid back in to save the transmission? You won't get far and you will probably do some damage to the transmission in the process.
