Look on your crank case oil fill cap to see if it tells you the correct viscosity for that year. If its not there your owners manual. If you don't have one then 5W-30 is a good all around weight. For your brake fluid it will probably be DOT3 or DOT4 it should say on the brake fluid reservoir cap. I don't think there is a specific power steering fluid so any should do just fine.
