But you're right, there could be anything in there. If that car has been in Brazil since new--likely because importing used is only for diplomats--it goes back to a time when auto transes were almost unknown. Brazilians had a deep distrust of auto transes for a long time--as well as 4-door cars, which I always found bizarre. GM was to blame for that, I believe.

So they may well have thrown PS fluid in there at some point as ATF just wasn't around.
