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.

Bleed power steering/brake unit 2002 GMC Sierra 3500


The slash that you placed between the words steering/brake have me concerned. I certainly hope you did not think that these two systems are co-joined? The power steering system is a hydraulic system completely separate and isolated from the brake system. They also use two completely different types of fluid. Putting brake fluid in the power steering system would destroy it just as putting power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder will destroy it. The type(s) of rubber used in the seals for each of these systems demands they use their own fluid. Any cross-contamination will require a complete draining, cleaning, and replacement of ALL rubber components and seals. This would include the power steering pump and rack for the power steering system, and for the brake system the master cylinder, all calipers and wheel cylinder as well as the proportioning valve. If there is an ABS unit, it will need serviced as well.

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..

I have my extended Mercedes Benz Warranty coming up in the next month. It is a 2005 SL 65. Can you advise what items I should have the dealership check for possible problems so I can get it fixed under...


Hi,
You need a full PMS( Preventive Maintenance Service ).
Just tell the service advisor to do that PMS( checking all underchasis, steering,electrical, brakes,fluids,transmission, bolt & nuts retightening ), change oil, and check all filters.
That's all they should do for a warranty check up.

Hope Fixya helps you out!

Hi i have 2003 Mercedes Benz S 500 i have


In your car Electronic Stability Program system included many different sensors (yaw-rate sensor, steering angel sensor, body acceleration sensor, some more) if ESP visit Workshop message appear on your instrument display It's very hard to say witch sensor could be the fault without right diagnose most common faults are either steering angel sensor or yaw-rate sensor might be some other sensors if you replace yaw-rate sensor it's need to be calibrate by diagnose computer, if replace steering angle sensor it's need to do right way otherwise when you tern steering wheel fully left or right it will brake at first time then you have to be replace another one so like to advise you to get right diagnose and repair buy Mercedes specialist if do some thing wrong it's be more cost to you if you get right place to do it only you have to pay once.

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.
