My 98 Camry had a slow leak at about 45 kmiles. I made a determined effort to complete several drain, drive, and refill cycles. ... Just drain the PS reservoir bottle on the fender, and refill with clean fluid. The leak has completely disappeared.
I used two or three different PS fluids ... one had some sort of teflon.
I think it important to use something with an additive of some sort.
Now, I regularly drain and refill at every oil change ... once a year. I buy a Toyota dealer recommended PS fluid ... at the Toyota parts counter. It was said to be fine for any Toyota PS system.
I think you can extend the life of your PS system, if there is not a major problem.
