Anyone used this or have an opinion?

2003 Ford Superduty. I'll be doing a complete fluid exchange.

I believe a 2003 Super Duty would use Mercon V transmission fluid in the power steering.

I have it in my 03 Excursion now for only about 3K miles.

I used their "flush" kit from Amazon in an attempt to help with an issue I was having. Helped for a while, but it needs more work (booster or pump, not sure).

I use it in my cars with no ill effects. You could also use regular fluid and add Lubegard's PS additive.

Most Honda'a require an 11 [email protected] fluid; this fluid is barely a 6 cSt fluid.

It says on the bottle that it's okay for Hondas. If Honda fluid is that much thicker, steering feel would be different, but I doubt it would cause damage.

I've been using M1 ATF in Ford PS pumps for 20-25 years with outstanding results. Performs very well in sub zero temps, and have never had a pump failure.

I have type F in my Ford, coming up on 29 years now. I changed it out a few times, it was always clean and the pump is the original. I changed the fluid about a month ago when I replaced the hoses, that's the only repair the system ever needed. The LG fluid should be fine.
