Fluid type for Sag pump swap.

What power steering fluid do you guys run with the Sag pump swap, aft or power steering fluid. I search and couldn’t find mention of it. If atf,can I use anything,I have a ton of atf+4 at work.

They disagree a lot, I’ve read tons, but seems sensible to me to use Dex. 3. Plain old trans fluid. You could use generic hydraulic fluid. That pump would be okay with that, but Dex2 or 3 is probably better. You aren’t going to hurt your pump unless you put water or something in it.....very good pump, Ford should be ashamed of their crappy pump. Ten years or more of the whining shit!!

I just replaced mine about 2 months ago. Found a lot of back and forth about what to put in there. Finally found several people who agree Valvoline Syn Power worked great and so that's what I put in mine and it has been working good. '

Any hydraulic fluid will work. ATF is what I use, but PS fluid, brake fluid, hydraulic oil, etc will work.

When I researched the threads while doing my swap I found some of the guys were using type F transmission fluid. I started using that and have not had a problem.

I believe by all of the posts above, the statement that "just about anything that is not water will work" is probably true.

I'm sure some may do better than others, but so far, so good with the type F here....

"Technically" water could work, but it'll rust things and has a poor hydraulic quality and low boiling point. But dont use water...

Ford manuals "E6AZ-19582-AA or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESW-M2C33-F"

basicly Fords Power Steering Fluid or Type F. i use Type F

think Mercon is thinner than Type F and can make it abit noisier plus it had more unneeded additives. but newer Ford pumps call for Mercon
