bandja is an unknown quantity at this point
Have a leaky Power Steering Hose on the docket for next weekend. In the mean time I would like to top off the PS Fluid. I need help with the type of Fluid to use. This car is PS only. The car is new to me as I have just sold my 92' 735i. The manual tells me to contact the dealer for specs??? Next question....Is there a service manual available for a '96 740IL?? Seems pretty top secret from my searches so far.

Thanks, Bandja in KC

look on the ps cap. Some tell you some don't. Pull the cap and look at the fluid. It will either be ATF (Dexron Mercon III) or the special mineral oil.

p/s resevoir cap should say ATF fluid on the top (normal auto trans fluid) as long as you don't have the self leveling system.
