Is there a list of appropriate fluids on this site?

I can't find a manual or even a service manual for this truck. 99 f-250 that lists the appropiate fluids for this truck.

I know the biggies, but i need to top off the power steering fluid and one person said that it is all the same and another said it uses ATF. I need a reputable list. Any ideas?

Thanks all.

It uses regular power steering fluid from the factory. I did have one reputable member say to drain all of the power steering fluid out and use a synthetic ATF fluid (I don't think you want to mix them - use one or the other). I guess the ATF is supposed to work better. I haven't done it yet, so I don't know. Maybe some more experienced users will chime in on this one.

power steering needs atf.
your coolant should be an ELC EC-1 rated coolant.
oil 15/40 here and 5/40 in cold environments is good.
uhm what else....

no one knows a service manual? Haynes doesn't have one, Chilton I can't find. How do people learn about these?
