    My local Hyundai garage has just told me that the Power steering fluid
    for my 2000 Sonata is 'ATF SP' and that this is the same as the auto
    transmission fluid.

    Is this advice correct?

  2. What does the manual specify? I know some cars have used ATF in the power
    steering but without looking things up I cannot verify this on you car.
    Check the manual.

    Actually, the specified power steering fluid is Dexron ATF.
