07 ZX3 2.0L Transmission Fluid Capacity? Power Steering Fluid Capacity?

Does anybody know what the capacity is for both of these? I tried referring to my manual, but couldn't find it. I need to know so I can add some Motorkote to both of them. Added Motorkote to my engine oil (add 10oz. for a 4 cyl. engine), and I must say, I'm impressed.

Well if its a manual it holds right around 2 quarts. I always buy three and then just fill it till it starts coming out the fill hole. Let it level out and cap it. As far as the power steering fluid I don't think it hold much more than a quart.

It's an automatic. I guess I'll just go out there and add according to what you said. Worth a try.

Probably not a good idea to add lubricant additives to your power steering or automatic transmissions. Both use their respective fluids to do work more than lubricate and they may not respond well to it.

Agreed. Both systems are pretty sensitive from what I have seen and read.

Already added. I can already tell it's improved.

Right...and how does adding a lubricant additive to your transmission or power steering system improve anything?

It made everything a lot smoother. You guys don't believe me anyway, so why bother explaining anything? You'd just have to try it. Wouldn't hurt.
