87 toyota celica GT pump/motor fluid type

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  87 toyota celica GT pump/motor fluid type

Hey folks. New to the forum. Looks great !! Looking for any insight on what type of fluid is used in the hydraulic motor/pump system used to raise and lower a convertible top on my 87 celica gt. I have a pump I got from an ebay seller to replace the existing one and want to make sure I use the right fluid. Someone told me trans fluid but that does not appear to be what is in the existing unit. Looks more like a brake fluid of some kind. Also I am curious if there is a bleeding process similar to a brake job needed to be performed or not? Any and all comment appreciated!! :wink2:
