Recently I had a leaky steering rack in my 91 318is and had it replaced by a local mechanic. He put regular power steering fluid in instead of the required ATF fluid. Will this cause damage? Can I siphon out the reservoir and replace it with ATF without problems? Thanks!!
Yes, it could eventually present a problem.
I suggest you flush your power steering system, instead of siphoning.
