Answer- OK, I have the same car and went through the same confusion. Use Dextron 2 or 3 as Toyota recommends. Don't use power steering fluid and don't think about brake fluid. The steering pumps in these cars are weak and love being replaced. It's not an easy job to change these out so you better use the Dextron 3 and keep up on the maintenance of your 17 yo car and it will take great care of you! Answer Dot 3 Answer My 94 Camry has a note about the correct fluid right on the cap, it says "Dexron II". I am pretty certain that yours uses either Dexron or power steering fluid, but almost certainly not dot3 brake fluid. Answer DO NOT ADD DOT3 BRAKE FLUID TO YOUR POWER STEERING!!! dex II is correct Answer Dextron 3 is okay --Never Dot 3 Brake Fluid

I have a 1990 Toyota Camry DX. The Manufacture specs call for Dexron III. Its trany fluid. the same fluid used for the trany in the car.

On the left side of the engine compartment there is the reservoir for the power steering fluid. Make sure that you do not put steering fluid in the radiator reservoir.
