Thank you. Would my local auto parts store know which power steering fluid to use in my Kia Rio?

If you have to add, I suspect you have a leak, might be best to fix the leak if it's excessive.

I was not told there was a leak, just that I needed it because the level was low. I also needed transmission fluid flush which I did have them do for $99.00. I hope I wasn't ripped off.
