Hi All,

The level of oil if getting low. From the owner manual, I need PSF-4 Power Steering Oil but a lot of brand (I went to an autozone) do not provide any information. I bought a bottle from Penzoil which is recommended for most of foreign vehicles beside Honda and Acura.

I am not sure if it is a good idea to use it. Where did you find your PS fluid? Do I need to go to the dealership?

Thanks!

As far as I know PSF-4 (green) is ONLY available at the dealership. I believe it costs about $25/quart. I have never seen it or found it at an auto parts store. Same goes for SPIII transmission fluid.

Is it legal to ship chemicals in the mail?

Yes it is, but not using regular USPS mail. You need a delivery service and packaging that meets DOT regulations depending on the chemical (toxic and/or flammable) you want to send. But obviously, highly hazardous substances cannot be shipped via air mail and to a personal address.

Not true, engine oils do not have a low enough flashpoint to be considered dangerous.
