I was about to buy some ATF for my power steering, but when I got to the store I was not sure what was the best. Micron V, Dextron III, mix of those two, Type F? There are alot of fluids and I thought I would ask for advice before I bought it. I am not draining and refilling the unit, just going to top it off.

Edit: The Bentley Manual says Dextron III or equivalent. Is the mix of Dextron III and Micron better to use? I have also heard about leaks, should I put in an additive to help stop those?
