May I know which power steering fluid is compatible for a 2005 93SS?

CHF-11s fluid. Pentosin is stock, but they also make fluid for Audi and VW. Just check the bottle and make sure it says CHF-11s. Most retail stores don't carry it.

Is there any other fluid that's compatible with chf11s?
There's a new spec called CHF 202 which is replacing the CHF 11 it sounds. Either one should be fine for your 2005. My '09 spec'd the 202 but 11 could be subbed.
Not sure what changed in the steering systems since MY '03.

BG Products makes one, Part #334, I'm using it. I don't have it handy but I've read the spec sheet and it is compatible with 11. If you doubt me just call the company and ask them.

Sure, why not. The CHS 11 is a pretty standard Euro spec if I recall.

And you can get Amsoil but not Pentosin? That's strange...
Amsoil has very limited retail distribution in the states as it's a MLM deal. Can't imagine oversees. I've never seen their PS fluid at all.

Power steering fluid needn't be changed often. Every 50,000 miles would be a cautious interval, but every 75,000 is probably normal, if even that early.

FYI, every NAPA store in my town carries the Pentosin brand of fluid. It isn't that obscure anymore.

Advance Auto Parts sells it now, and I've also seen it at NAPA. CarQuest probably also stocks it.

Wow, maybe my area is different. The only place that stocks it in CNY is Autopart International. Nappa, AA and Autozone all can order it, but dont stock it on the shelf.
