Owner's Guide call for Mercon V ATF. I run the Valvoline Mercon V ATF. These trucks don't take actual power steering fluid, just automatic transmission fluid.

I bet your hydro-boost is leaking. I had mine replaced once already because of a leak, and it's leaking again. I see mine eventually drip on the drivers side frame rail.
