Power Steering Fluid

I noticed a noise coming from the power steering of my 2.0 JTS Coupe. Checking the power steering fluid I found it to be very low and in need of a top up.

Halfords have reccommended using Slick 50 Power Steering Fluid rather than Dexron II or any other similar product.

Before I actually flush the system and use the Slick 50 stuff does anyone have experience with it and (not that I don't trust Halfords) is it OK to use.

Any advice gratefully received.

Just use dexron II until you've found out why it's low on fluid. You may have a leak.

I wouldn't go to Halfrauds either. Pop down to your local garage and ask them to top it up for you. Two minute job and if you're a regular customer chances are they wont charge you either.
I wouldnt for a regular. Plus you could always ask the garage what they think of slick 50.

You dont wanna put in some expensive stuff to find it gone in a week

Better to use the manufacturer specified fluid than snake oil!
