Question about 2001 BMW 325
Also note, in these cars they use AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID for their power steering system, so don't be alarmed at the colour.

Open the hood look carefully for the power steering reservoir,there will be a small lid on it you remove that and it has a little dipstick on it or you will see a level indicator on the bottle telling you how much is in there

Make sure you check your power steering fluid... if it's even low, it will make a terrible noise...run it on empty too long and your can ruin your power steering pump.

when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20
it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.
hope this helped.

i have to admit without more detail it's hard to say.... my educated guess would be that one of the hoses to the transmission cooler has blow and needs to be replaced. do NOT drive the car till that is done.

SOURCE: power steering fluid level
most power steering caps have dipstick attached to the lid,and show a level for warm and cold, if not check the level is approx 1inc below neck...

Dexron III ATF is what BMW called for in the power steering pump in these models. However, GM no longer makes a type-III ATF!
Nice thing about GM Dexron specifications is that any higher numbered fluid meets the requirements of previous, lower numbered fluids. What does this mean? Siphon out as much as the old junk as you can. Refill with Dexron III and if you cannot find that? A common on the shelf *upgraded* synthetic fluid can be found in Dexron VI that more than adequately surpasses previous Dex-III specifications. So use with confidence! Pour and forget...
