As far as I know GM regular power steering fluid is to be used. Even my 97 spec is GM fluid.
I also know from experimentation on my 81 olds it did not like ATF in the PS.
Any power steering fluid from your local store will work fine. However use a full synthetic PS fluid for better cold performance. Dont use synthetic if the pump is new however they must be broken in on reg PS fluid for 1500 miles. Gm states 500 miles break in period, but I know it is way longer than that from changing too many pumps.
Block heater is finding right one for the engine, and remove a frost plug, insert, tighten according to supplied instructions that comes with part.
Definitely get new spark plugs and wires on that car!
