The hydraulic fluid in my 1999 Audi A4 is very low, can I use power steering fluid?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd I'm not sure what you mean by hydraulic fluid. Brake fluid? Whatever you're talking about, you should never mix or interchange fluids.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at For hydraulic fluid only use new brake fluid conforming to US standard FMVSS 116 DOT4. Power steering fluid would be G002 000 or equivalent.
