Thought that when I change radiator, I would do the power steering fluid change as well.

So how much fluid I have to buy? I'm getting quite good and expensive oil, so the accurate number would be best :).

The power steering does not have Mercon from the factory. Both my wagon and my dads zx2 have stuff that smells like hydraulic oil.

In my 1998 Escort owner's manual, it says to use Mercon ATF in the power steering. There is no capacity given... It just says to "fill to the indicator line on the reservoir".

FWIW, you can download a PDF version of the owner's manual that came with your car directly from Ford. Click on the link below:

Ok changed the oil today. In went Pennzoil ATF oil (suitable for mercon).

We flushed the steering rack and put new oil in. I was quite simple if you have a carlift :D. About 1L oil went in.
