Hi everyone and I have 3 questions:

1. need to add some power steering fluid, the cap says ATF does anyone knows the difference between regular fluids and ATF for steering; I know ATF is a tranny fuild; are they the same; can it be substituted.

2. when cold starting, engine is very rough sounds like missing, once the temp pass the blue it runs great. changed spark plugs + all 4 O2 sensors, dealer items. No check engine light no codes. Any idea?

3. when Doing 60 MPH, RPM about 2000-2200 when let go of gas pedal just about 45-50 MPH the RPM drops sharply to about 1500 for 5 seconds or so then it picks up again to normal. sound just like throwing the tranny into N at 55 MPH. any thought is greatly appreciated
