what not to top your power steering up with

The power steering fluid on the GTV was a bit low so I topped it up with slick 50 power steering fluid (thats all they had in the garage).

Gradually over a week the pump started to whine and the bottle was full of foam, you could hear the bubbles in the system.

I was going to swap the pump then though I would drain the system flushed it through and it is now perfect!

My next door neighbour used to be the MD (free GP tickets) so i cant make rude remarks about them but it was not good!!!
