Found out that the mechanic at the Toyota Dealership replaced my corroded power steering cooler assembly and added power steering fluid instead of tranny fluid...Should i worry if this will cause a leak later on...from the previous posts i've read, PS fluid was known to cause leaks.. Should i get them to replace it back with the tranny fluid i put it in before i took it to the dealership?? Maybe just siphon it out myself???

Did ask them to check it out the LC overall, and they found nothing wrong....good news to hear.

From what I've seen, none of the dealers use ATF. They all use PS fluid.
Actaully I think it's almost the same thing.

I know the cap says ATF but the factory fill is not red, it is a honey gold color. I run power steering fluid in my rig.
