ATF is transmission fluid. Check reservoir on front of engine or on firewall.

I have a 1992 BMW 525 I manual transmission what kind of fluid do I put in the ATF oil only reservoir?


You should be able to use most Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF), although if you have a manual shift car, then there is no ATF.
Check the fluid level careful if you do have an ATF container, since it is very rare that you would lose fluid from the transmission.

Hello My 1996 discoverys steering is very very stiff especially when turning right. This problem dissappears soon after the vehicle starts to move. The problem started two days ago. steering fluid level...


hi.
if the fluid level is ok, then there is probably not a leak in the system.
check the tyre pressures are correct as underinflated tyres can make the steering heavy, as well as increasing tyre wear.
if the tyre pressures and fluid levels are ok then check the belt driving the power steering pump is ok.
other problems include a bad power steering pump. a faulty rack, or siezed joints on the struts.

My car whines when I steer it


You must check the Power Steering Oil level, its prpably a little low. You can top it up with ATF (automatic transmission fluid) Also check that the belt is ok and not cracked or contaminated by oil or water. Hope that helps

What kind of power steering fluid is used for BMW


The cap to your power steering reservoir should either say ATF or CHF11s. If it is ATF you can use Dexron automatic transmission fluid. If it is CHF11s the dealer is the only place I know that sells it. There should be level marks on the cap stick.

Power steering failure


The fluid level will still be OK, Even though the Pump is going bad. The Interior Seals inside the Pump are Worn out and the Pump really needs to be Replaced.

Clicking/Squealing When Turning Wheel


Could be two problems. First the power steering; Check the tension of the drive belt for the power steering and the condition of the belt. If that appears to be OK, check the level of the fluid and its condition or apperance compared to new fluid that is recomended by the manufacturer. If that appears OK, it could possibly be the power steering pump it self. Second the clicking; It is most likely a bad CV (constant velocity) axle. Good Luck.
