I just bought an mr2 power steering pump from http://www.usedpartslive.com/

Does anyone have any recommendations on a fluid reservoir?

Also I thought I heard something about them needing a special fluid...
Is that true? or can I use regular power steering fluid?

Any other points would be appreciated also. :)

Thanks,

I use the reservoir from a Honda Accord 1994. Works great and you can
get them from a junkyard for about $10...

Hi Tehben, I have always used regular Power Steering fluid with my MR2
pump, no problems here.

I am about to fill up my pwer steering system but I wanted to make
sure I used the right fluid.
Can anyone else out there who is using an MR2 pump let me know what
fluid you are using? I have heard mention of automatic transmission
fluid....???

and also I am not sure what was in the steering unit in my truck... I
am going to try to find out.

Thanks,
Tehben
