Can transmission oil be used in hydraulic steering?

Transmission oil mustn’t be put in the vehicle's hydraulic steering, as transmission oils have different properties and viscosities than the hydraulic oils used in the hydraulic steering systems. Using transmission oil can cause problems in the steering system, such as a reduction in the steering capacity, damage in the components, and possible fluid leaks. To avoid this, it is recommended to use the hydraulic oil recommended by the manufacturer and avoid mixing it with other types of oils or fluids.
