power steering fluid do ?
Dunno, but it isn't going to do any harm. ATF seems particularly good at alloy to steel corrosion and mixing it 50/50 with Acetone lets it penetrate more before the Acetone evaporates and leaves the ATF to do it's stuff. A mate had an engine that had been standing for 6 years, outside with no sparkplugs in it so the pistons had corroded into the bores. It had sat for 3 weeks with the bores full of diesel and that made no difference, but leaving it overnight with ATF in the bores and it freed off.
