Exclamation Power steering fluid


I need to add power steering fluid. Porsche owner book says use Pentosin CHF 11S. I found on the net Pentosin CHF 202. Is this the same stuff? Can I mix 202 with 11S fluid?

Thanks for your help.

You can use automatic transmission fluid.

At least that is what Cecil on ppbb told me 100 years ago.

You can find him here. http://www.ppbb.com/board/986board.htm

I called him on it and got banned from ppbb over 7 years ago, for this and other stuff.

This is what you need. You can mix them together.

I had the same question once. IIRC, read the outside of the fluid type you have. i think it references the other one (at least mine did). My guess is you are just "topping" off anyway, correct? Be careful.. for me I thought the "tank" filled up quickly.
