What color should my power steering fluid be if it is still good. Mine is clear , However a new can of CH 11 S is green. I'm confused again since I heard the fluid should be clear. I have green fluid for the brakes .:dunno:

Brake fluids are made in different colors .
The advantage of this is its easy to see when
you have properly bled the brakes although
few seldom use this feature.

Pentosin chf only comes in one color and that
is green.(Clear green)
It turns kind of brownish and black after it's been
in there for and extended period though.

Does your reservoir cap say CHF-11S or ATF?
If it's clear and colorless, it's the wrong fluid. Maybe somebody used mineral oil.

The indicator is a sticker . Mine has nearly fallen off .
And underneath it says to use something else to be
ware of to this .

Very interesting thanks. My cap has CF 11 S engraved on the cap. What a trip, what color is your current fluid and what year is your 328i ? :dunno:
