You'll also need to drain and flush both systems as the two fluids are incompatible. Brake fluid (DOT3, etc.) goes into the brake master cylinder (located directly in front of the brake pedal, except inside the engine compartment...on the left hand side). Power steering fluid should go into the power steering pump reservoir mounted directly to the pump or in a remote location somewhere near the pump. Usually the power steering pump is located on the front of the engine near the fan/serp. belts.

The brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

I think you have air in your PS fluid. Check the level, turn the wheels all the way left, and right check again - is it any lower? Top it off and repeat until you are not adding any more fluid.

How do i add power steering fluid to a 2005 mercedes benz ml350?


most parts stores for foriegn cars will advise you on this, but in my experience the pump/reservoir assembly may have either a cap on it or it may use a reservoir mounted on the firewall or either side that looks like a slave cylinder reservoir. it should be marked somewhere for power steering only..this reservoir may have a cap thats removeable and the full line will be visible on the outside of it, with power steering fluid only, fill to line..in exrteme cases, there is a hose that comes up to a cap somewhere(usually these types of refill setups are rare because it confuses the owner)where the fluid gets added, I have seen so many different styles of refil setups, so it just depends on which is used by the manufacturer of the car..be careful not to mix fluids as this will not help your situation..brake fluid wont mix with power steering fluid so just be warned..

Any Dexron spec ATF will do although Castrol was recommended originally. Mercedes also sells their own brand of power steering fluid.

I have a 230E Mercedes benz 1987 with an engine 1985 230E the car vibrates violently when stopping on (d)rive gear weak torque on the first gear.


The heavy vibration during braking sounds like it is warped disc rotors. This car has disc brakes on all wheels, so it could be one or all of them causing the problem. One way to identify whether it is the front or the rear is to observe the steering wheel while braking and feeling the vibrations. If the steering wheel is shimmying at the same frequency as the vibration, it is almost certain that it is the front. If not it is the rear. Do a visual inspection of your pads and rotors. You will probably see scoring in the rotors. It is a fairly easy do-it-yourself job with improved braking and that smooth Mercedes ride we all love.

What transmission fluid can I use in my 1993 Mercedes Benz 190E


AF3 onepx.gif DEXRON®-III Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMW: Power steering use AF3; Models with combined power steering,
hydraulic brake booster, self-leveling suspension system use SLF
Mercedes-Benz: Use only manufacturer approved fluid


Look on the back of the bottle of fluid you are looking to buy, if it does not say is is approved by MB, don't use it.
