I'm also thinking it had to be a PS fluid and not an ATF for that year. I've owned two caravans and both have run best with the proper fluid.

Shake it up and use it. I "experimented" by letting a bottle sit in warm tap water and a lot of the residue went back into suspension when warmed. Ruined the label but hey, if hot tap water works, then it will be a non-issue later IMO.

I like the idea of the 8 speed AT, initially I was on the fence about it. Driving one sold me. My only beef is that you need a special dipstick, not provided with the vehicle, and a PhD in physics to check the ATF level. I'm making progress but I sti

I have a 2014 CX5 and tried 91 vs 87 and kept fuel mileage records for 2 full tanks of each and any increase or decrease was buried in the variability of tank to tank values. I therefore see no reason to run higher than 87.
