  14. Im running low on power steering fluid and went to autobarn to purchase a clear power steering fluid branded Penrite. It was recommended by the sales man. When i looked the car's power steering fluid (Toyota Camry 2010) the fluid was a light redish color. So the question is; can i mix the two together since they are different in color? Also to add: I've checked that it is compatible with my car but not sure if i can mix the old with the new. edit: after checking the power steering fluid again now it looks like a red-brown colour I have checked the owner manual and it said automated transmission fluid DEXRON II or III. I have also checked the product manual and it confirms that it is suitable for the car. also the store man said the Penrite power steering fluid he recommended was DEXRON III capable and the only brand he recommends However, I'm concerned because the color of the stock fluid (that came with the car) and the one purchased is different in color.
