I take special interest in this as you guys seem to know how to do all this stuff inherently and I just don't.

I've been scared to "flush" my power steering fluid even though I have a noise upon cold engine startup which might be the fluid. I had asked the parts guy and he gave me power steering fluid (he said it was Dexron II) which I put in, only to find out belatedly it's Dexron III ATF you need, and even then, they don't make it anymore so you really need Dexron VI ATF!

My question is ... is Dexron VI ATF the same as "get two quarts of the best synthetic ATF from your auto parts store" ???
