I have a long-time issue with the PS Fluid Reservoir on my 2001 330ci. In about 2011 I had it replaced, but the problem came back immediately. I don't need to "top off" the fluid ofter, but it looks nasty when I open the engine compartment. Any ideas?
The had a E46 Coupe 323Ci (2.5 petrol) Auto. The ex wife loved it, so i gave it to her.
She is getting the usual whining noise when turning the steering. To me this says Power Steering fluid is low. I presume this hasn't been topped up since i last topped it up over 5 years ago.
I got into video editing and it became my hobby in the little spare time that I have. I made a couple of videos on my E63 M6 that I wanted to share with you and hopefully they will be helpful. If you have any other subjects that you would like to see a video on, just let me know.
Hi guys, I just finished uploading a video I put together that highlights a power steering fluid replacement, without having to drain it from the steering rack.
I have a 2000 Z3 2.8 with minor leaks from power steering hoses. Hoping to avoid the $300 cost of replacing hoses, I'd like to add Valvoline Maxlife (with stop leak) to the reservoir and see if it stops the leak.
Is this product compatible with the manufacturer recommended fluid that is...
Yeah so my steering is gets tight if I am not pressing on the breaks. So I am thinking that there is not enough fluid in my power steering reservoir. Can someone please help me locate the reservoir? I just bought this a few days ago, and this is one of the last things I need to do to it.
I was really confused lately on whether PS fluid same one as transmission fluid?! it says ATF only on the PS reservoir but I coudn't find any power steering fluid that says ATF, instead I found ATF Drexon/Mercon. Would someone clear that up for me? Since it says ATF only on power steering cap...
I've been recently informed that my power steering fluid level is at the minimum, I must first top it off. I have a 2007 328xi coupe (6-speed). Do I have to stick to BMW fluids? Anything suitable other than that, what are the specs? Please advise.
Mylocal Valvoline oil change just informed me that the power steering fluid level is at minimum (2007 328xi coupe - 98K). They explained that the reservoir is attached by a crimping device rather than a regular clamp, I have a slow leak.
I've read (on the net) that I...
Long overdue, I finally changed the power steering fluid today, with Mobil1 Pure Synthetic ATF (on the label rated to all the pertainent specs I can recall).
Preamble: I went to BedBath and Beyond, and picked up the Oneida turkey baster kit for $3.99, which included a brush. This becomes...
I have a 1993 318is.
i left my car with the parents for awhile (2 years). they drove it occasionally and wrote me about the power steering making noise. they had a 'family friend' come look and fix a few things. now i'm home and the ATF foams up. on top of that it still makes noise.
I took a...
Got a message from iDrive saying that the power steering fluid level is low. Did a check on the reservoir under the hood and sure it was low. Can I just top it off with any power steering fluid from Autozone or do I have to buy it from the BMW dealer? Thanks in advance!
Have a 2003 530i. The ATF oil canister is empty. It seems like its the place for power steering fluid. What kind of power steering fluid is needed? The manual does not mention this.
Thanks for the help.
