    Hello guys. I have last week bought a BMW F10 520D 2.0L (2014). I have a slight issue with the steering. When driving, the steering turns more times to the left, by itself (sometimes to the right also), by about 35° - 40°. It feels as if its turning it self, rather than drifting. After a couple...

    I have a 2000 328i that has a history of power steering fluid leaking over time. Over christmas break I changed all of the power steering hoses and reservoir, which fixed the issue. However last week while making a sharp left turn the power steering went out, and from what I can tell all of...

    New to the forum, thanks for any advice in advance! Over the last week I have been having issues with power steering fluid leaking after driving for a bit. Seems to come out of the top of the reservoir and pool down from there. I have gone through a liter of CHF this week. Up until today i...

    Just got a 2000 323i and replaced the power steering pump. When I replaced it the metal hose that is screwed inside of pump doesn't screw all the way in. This has caused a large leak. I know there is a small o-ring on the very end of the hose, but is there another maybe. Any help would be...

    Hello to all, I am new to the forum and I wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same problem as I am. My 2012 BMW 335i couple M Sport Package (automatic) engine stalls randomly (5 times since purchasing the car in November of 2013). As a result, the power steering fails and power...

    So I have a problem with what I think is my power steering, at first I thought it was just that I had low fluid, which I did, so I refilled it. However; even right now with the fluid refilled it is still incredibly difficult to turn the wheel. I used ATF import Valvoline to refill the power...

    No, this is not the typical slow leak from the bottom of the PS fluid reservoir, but it probably started that way. About a month ago, during my regular oil change, I noticed that telltale sign of PS fluid making its way down the front hose going to the radiator. No big deal. I just crank down...

    Thank you for your advice and counsel! 2000 323i , 160K miles, just "threw" a small belt, in tact, that got tangled with larger belt just behind radiator. Engine overheated. Power steering was affected. What might that be?

    I have a 2007 335i coupe and I was driving the car today and heard a clicking noise. The clicking noise then turned into a crumbling noise, so I pulled the car over immediately. The noise then went away but the steering wheel was impossible to turn. I had my car towed to the dealership but they...
