My porshe cayenne 2005 has noise in the steering wheel when i am barking out of my garage, it continues for a quarter of a mile and its there at left or right turn,


Low power steer fluid. When it warms up fluid expands a little.
Or could be power steer pump is dead.
Or could be filter/reservoir needs changing. Change reservoir to change filter.
Check fluid level first

What type of power steering fluid and the capicity does bmw 545i 2004


Most BMWs have a dip stick in the reservoir cap to measure the fluid level of the power steering fluid. We use Agip power steering fluid. There are generally just two types, standard Dextrn/ATF and Power steering fluid. Unless the cap or manual states otherwise, then just put power steering fluid in it.

Change the power steering fluid on a 2006 rendezvous


It's a bit difficult to do with out making a mess, you need to loosen the power steering hose and let the fluid run out, Then tighten it and refill the fluid, you will only be able to change about 90% of the fluid.

Some garages have electric pump systems that can completely change the fluid but this can be expensive depending on the garage.

Getting a light color from power steering unit.It is not very pink in color anymore.Someone in buickforums wrote me saying may be getting coolant thru power steering cooler.What needs to be looked at


Power steering fluid comes in two colors, one of which is amber and the other color is a pink/red combination. When power steering fluid becomes much darker than when it is new, that means it is time to change it. Some vehicles have a light brown power steering fluid. just change the fluid and go from there ! use a turkey baster to remove fluid in power steering pump. refill the pump with new fluid, make sure air is out of system. you may need to bleed system when done. there will be some old fluid in system. but this is ok. to get air from system, just jackup front of car. move steering wheel from left stop to the right stop. do this a few times and be sure fluid is up in tank.

The oil in my power steering is black how do I change it


First thing you need to do is remove thwe return line from your power steering reservoir. Thats the thing you put the power steering fluid in. Run that hose to a large container where you can catch a lot of fluid in. Now you want to make sure you have your new power steering fluid on hand before you start and another person would be very helpful also. Have your helper start the car and turn the wheel back and forth while you pour power steering fluid in the reservoir. Do not let your power steering fluid run completely out you can ruin your pump and or steering box. Continue to pour in new steering fluid until the fluid coming out of the hose thats in the bucket is clean fluid. Turn vehicle off reconect the hose to the reservoir and top off. With the lid off reservoir start the vehicle back up and turn wheel all the way back and forth many times(do not turn it to its furthest position where it bumps) continue to make sure the fluid level is always full. By turning the wheel back and forth you are bleeding the lines to get all the air out. Do that a few times, refill and put the cap back on. You just changed your power steering fluid. I f your vehicle is old you may want to get new rubber hoses for your power steering system. hoses degrade over time and eventually they start to flake off into your fluid which can damage parts. Always a good idea to replace hoses especially if they are soft.

Power steering fluid


Nothing will happen. Power steering fluid is what you should have used. ATF is Automatic Transmission Fluid.This fluid is more intended where friction qualities are needed.It will work, but power steering fluid is better for the pump and hoses and gives the rack and pinion a better lubrication the ATF.Don't worry you are fine as it is.
