Default Power Steering Fluid

Is there any alternative to Jaguar power steering fluid that can bought in a regular auto parts store?

This is what the JTIS says..but the dealer gave me a bottle of Mobil Premium ATF...has there been a change of fluid requirements?...Something in the my memory banks I recall, that the guys at the dealer said there was a change...and it was pricey too..

Power Steering Fluid: JTIS Spec: Mobil ATF meeting Dexron 3 Specification. Capacity: 1.2 Qts. Approximately

How often should it be changed? I just had my oil changed and they said the power steering fluid should be changed too.

Default Changing my fluids and filters. Specifications?

I have a 2005 S Type 3.0 6 cyl. I live in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and they so far don't have the air filter I need. So I'm going online and having it all sent here. I want to get P/S fluid, Air filter, gas filter, *Do I need transmission fluid and filter or are these transmissions sealed? I also need Rear end fluid & Cabin Filter (whatever those are? It was suggested I change these in a different post.) And I might as well snag some spark plugs and engine oil while I'm at it. Anything else I might need that they won't have in my area which I'll just assume is everything and anything? This car was not maintained and so I want to get it up to par... What are the special SPECIFICATIONS on each? And is there a way to buy these at Autowharehouse and not have to buy from Jaguar?
