I put in Prestone DOT4 Synthetic about 7 months ago. Have had no problems/whining. I needed some ASAP and couldn't wait to have the Petosin come in the mail. I will just suck out the other and put in the Petosin later. 25.00 for power steering fluid........geesh. Probably has gold flakes in it.

No. NAPA may carry it, any auto parts store catering to european vehicles will carry it. CHF-11s has been replaced by CHF-202. Some stores may have both, some may only have the newer 202.

And it is pale green color; without any gold flakes.
