What type of power steering fluid should I use?

While some fluids are interchangeable from one brand to another, power steering fluid is not one of them. For instance, you can use any brand of engine oil in your Accord, as long as it’s 0W-20. Power steering fluid should be Honda brand. If you have to use a different brand, Honda recommends having the system flushed as soon as possible.
