Mobil ATF D/M... Is it good for PS?

Ok, so i recently chnaged out the power steering hoses and flushed the ATF/Power Steering Resv.. My buddy said that this will work ok for the power steering(ATF)

I got the Mobil ATF D/M at the gas station. Wasn't sure if this stuff is ok or not here is a link to it http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/...il_ATF_DM.aspx

Just want to make sure its not gonna mess anything up. Or if any of you have used this... THanks

I've been using the Mobil 1 ATF in my PS for a few years. This was because I had a case of the stuff and decided that since I had no other use for it, I might as well use it in the 330 power steering. So far, no leaks or any problems. Regular old ATF still works too.

As long as it's ATF, then you are fine.
