can i use dextron atf for my power steering?

I have a 1994 toyota camry, and the steering wheel has been sticking. So I went to the auto part store to get some fluid. And they gave me this castrol transmission fluid, but its still been locking up. Could it have been the wrong fluid?

Your power steering cap says use Dexron ATF. Either your pump or rack is going bad.

ATF is fine for use in power steering except for Honda (requiring Honda fluid), and Audi (requiring mineral 7.1 or 11s) The major difference between ATF and p/s fluid is that ATF has friction modifiers, harmless for hydraulics, necessary for transmissions to shift smooth.
