[xj-s] which oil power steering?

Which oil should I use for the power steering ? The same red oil
(ATF) as the tranny ?

I checked and it was empty !! Do I have a major problem ?

I am new, working on it for three weeks. Tranny is leaking and not
working (5-speed in mind). Never had the chance to drive the car,
so I don’t know if the steering is working properly.

So I would like to start pouring oil in it.

Hi Dirk,

 I believe that my owner's manual calls for ATF to be used in 

mine. Not to say power steering fluid wouldn’t work, just that ATF
is recommended in mine. But my power steering unit is made by ZF,
so that could be different than yours.
