I don't know what Mobil 1 3309 is. My advice to you is to find something that says power steering fluid. Here at our store, we use a Napa brand power steering fluid. Power steering is not as critical as the engine or trans on the correct fluid. So, if the Mobil 1 3309 says that it is a power steering fluid, can't see why it wouldn't hurt.

05 camry ps fluid cap mention Dex II or III, can I use Mobil 1 3309?

Not PSF, but Dexron ATF. ATF is superior to PSF. It's cheap so why not get the right thing and not worry about it? SuperTech ATF is like $2.50/qt.

Nobody really knows what will happen if you put in 3309. If you ever have problems, you'll wonder if 3309 had a part in it.

A suck and refill every year and you'll never worry about your pump or leaks, ever. A bottle will last you 4 years and it's cheaper than a single oil change.

uh-oh!:(
I just did use a turkey baster and a long straw and suck then refilled with Mobil ATF3309 and did that operation twice.
Then what's the name of the correct product either from Toyota dealership or Walmart to buy?

Thanks for the info!:)

You can either do Power steering fluid or DEXRON III trans fluid. I prefer power steering fluid becaue it is a lighter color and can easily differentiate when leaks occur. But it won't hurt your system to use DEXRON III.

Not really sure, the T-IV will hurt also.

SuperTech Automatic Transmission Fluid is from Walmart. Any PSF you find at walmart is probably not going to be as good as ATF.

It's certainly possible that 3309 will be fine or even work better. Honestly I don't know. You can go over to bobistheoilguy.com and PM Molakule. He is a formulator and has formulated his own PSF.

EDIT: Noticed you lived in Canada. A synthetic ATF like Mobil 1, Amsoil, redline D4 will make steering easier in the winter. Not necessary, but just letting you know the benefits. Oh, and 3309 is not synthetic.
