What power steering fluid do I use?

Why is it so complicated to find out what kind of power steering fluid to put in my 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS? The manual doesn’t tell me, the fluid cap doesn’t say, and it seems to be nowhere online. Where can I find this type of information.

If it’s not reflected in the owners manual that a special power steering fluid be used, then go to the parts store and purchase power steering fluid.


Read the manual again. My 2002 Subaru Owner’s Manual clearly states that Dexron III automatic transmission fluid should be used in the power steering system.
