For a 1987 325i. Ned to add fluid to power steering reservoir. What do I use? ATF?
Yes, use ATF fluid. Dexron III or just get the factory fill......
in addition to ATF, Mike Miller of Roudel's TechTalk recommends RedLine Power Steering fluid for E30s... I have a quart you can have for free if you want (I bought it when I had an E30...)
If he doesn't claim it, count me as a second.
I guess the quart is up for grabs. The shipping may be more than the actual item if you buy it locally
yup but I was thinking the cheapest shipping may work out; and I would feel better not wasting a quart of good red line...
Where are you located at?
san diego ...
Darn. I'm at the very opposite of the country. How much does a quart of that stuff go for? If it's more than shipping then I'm still game.
Thanks for responding. I've already added ATF and the steering is much improved.
cost of oil...
redline sells it for $9.49:
I usually buy my red line products directly from Red Line...
I also have an new extra quart of 75W-90 final drive fluid - recommended by Mike for all BMW final drives but M differentials (LSD and not LSD) - since I just took delivery of my MZ4, I can't use this type of oil anymore...
i don't know yet what the post office will charge to mail it. what is you zip code?
