Power steering fluid - RX300


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Could someone please confirm how much power steering fluid is needed for RX300 ? 

Can you recommend any brand?

 

I was thinking about: Motul

or this one Mannol which is significantly cheaper but I have never heard of this brand before.

I have also come across this: Opti Lube, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/312730585179

Any suggestions ?

How much do you save over 3 years by buying it from somewhere other than Lexus? I would suggest this is a false economy and to just buy it from there, then at least you know it's the right fluid and won't cause problems down the line. A leaking steering rack is going to cost a hell of a lot more than some fluid.

I didn't even know that they had their own fluid. It is not about saving or not. I was curious how much fluid gets into the system because I need to flush it first and I wonder how much it takes... Plus it is a bit more convenient to order things online than go every time to the dealer which is at the end of the town in my case and loose an hour in traffic... 

I thought it was like with most other brands that as long as you buy the same specs it is all good. 

Although I know that for coolant Toyota long life is required which is a bit more special.
