So, I'm noticing when i'm in 1st gear making turns it's very difficult to do. My car sounds like a moose in heat. Very sluggish and very annoying. First thought that popped into my mind was low power steering fluid. I checked, and indeed it is kind of low. Here's my question: (and please pardon my ignorance in this area) Is it alright to just top the power steering fluid off or do i need to do a flush?
I'm also a little concerned that one of the hoses might be leaky. Is there a technical way to check for a leaky power steering hose or just get under there and have a look-see?
Thanks for your time and help guys.
Thanks man, that info will definitely help.
Dumb question (i think)...i just checked the cap on my power steering reservoir and it just says "FZ". What should that mean to me??
It's a '94 325i, i think i recall finding out that i need to use dexron III atf if im not mistaken. Sound about right?
