The best dextron is the one that doesn’t come close to your car :rotate:

It moght just be Swedens cold climate but if you try to cold start the car at more than -10 the power steering pump squeales and if you start at around -25-30 the hoses pop off and give you a world of trouble.

On all my Alfas I’ve regularly changed fluid on all of them to VW’s green power steering fluid which flows a lot easier. No squealing - ever from a pump since and I’ve cold started my Alfas down to -35 without a hickup.

Green and red PSF dont mix though so I flush through until the colour changes, than pop the hose back and start topping up.
Gives a smidgeon of a heavier steering feel but that’s not something anybody else notices in my cars.
