A bit of research done for Toyota power steering fluid EH, and the part # 08886-81250

1 Litre is about €35-00, this may be handy for anybody getting the upgraded steering package.

Not sure alot of lads were asking questions on this fluid as it needs to be rated for use with the electronic power steering pump.

Spanky may be able to contribute more to this than me MJ.

There is a theory that regular auto transmission fluid is bad for the joints. Whether this is true or not it is the wrong type of fluid for the power steering on our cars.

The MR2 power steering is electro hydraulic and so the fluid has very different characteristics.

I believe it is a similar difference to that between brake fluid and engine oil i.e. one type is intended to lubricate and the other is intended to do work.

Whatever is actually true, the fluid should be a golden colour. If it is red then it is wrong. Peugot are a big user of electro hydraulic fluid as well. You can get a smaller bottle with them for less than Toyota.

To keep this thread fresh, apparently Peugeot (stay with me!) uses an almost identical EH fluid, but it runs and less than half the price.

Unsure of the product code for it, but I think they only have the one type
