Answers :

In the back of your owners manual they list approved fluids or approved fluid types. Mercedes has more up to date lists on the websites. Yours should be a Dexron II type but verify with your manual or dealer (call parts department and ask, they will tell you but service manager won't have a clue). You have to double check as the 90's were transitional where they went from the older style fluids to full synthetics in everything.

Poured oil into power steering for 66 mustang. It normally uses F type transmission oil. Do I need to drain it? Will it damage power steering


Thankfully it wouldn't damage anything. However it is a messy job to drain the fluid back out. Either a shop can do it for you, or you can simply remove the return line and place it into a bucket. Turn it by hand to get most of the fluids out. Replac ... 1966 Ford Mustang

When I start the car in the morning (its wintertime so its usually about 20 degrees) the engine (3.5 V6) ticks then gains oil pressure which is normal, but once the idle comes down around 1100 to 1000 there is an aweful grind of screeching noise... sounds like a bad bearing type sound and I know it is coming from the power steering assembly somewhere... When I crawl underneath the bottom side of the pump is "wet" looking as if covered in oil or something but the fluid level is always full and ne

When I start the car and start to drive I hear a loud whining noise from under the hood. (Really annoying) The problem seems worse when the steering wheel is turned. I suspect the power steering pump but fear it could be trany problems. I am getting pretty dramatic oil pressure fluctuations (oil sending unit?) but fluids are good, no warning lights, no loss of power and no apparent steering issues. 125k miles, runs great, well maintained but I am stumped on this. any help appreciated. thanks


Might be a louse belt, air in the steering rocker arm system, a bad CW joint, or anything else. Try to locate the source of the noise first. ... 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Power Steering needs topping up daily & there's oil dripping to the floor, also the rack boot needs replacing. As we don't have $2'000 for a garage to "fix" the power steering problem, How hard is it to remove the power steering pump, hoses, rack & steering? & replace with a manual steering rack & steering? Do we need any extra special tools, or can a couple of back-yarders do this replacement?


If you are up to it, you can remove the Rack and Pinion and have it rebuilt. Most of the time the rebuild kits can be purchased locally, but I recommend you have it rebuilt by a professional. I usually just buy new Rack and Pinions and get the old on ... 1984 Subaru Brat

Peugeot 407 Hi, I have power steering rack leak problem with my 2009 model Peugeot 407 and I saw online oil like Lucas can stop this leak.
