Thumbs up

I have a leak in the power steering return hose and I was wondering what I need to look for in power steering fluid. The cap says ATF Oil Only for a 1998 528i. Is that all I need to know or is there a preferred brand?

thanks

That is what it is! I went to the dealer and asked him the exact question he gave me a red bottle of EXXON superflo dexron lll MERCON ATF. That is it. I did post it somewhere on the forum. Good luck
