What is the brand of power steering oil i have to buy for a mercedes 190d diesel 2.5 5cylinder 1987 is any of them ok or a special blend , i have a leak so it is empty

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

What kind of steering fluid does my 2000 camaro ss take?

Dexron III.

You can Dexron, Dexron II, Dexron IIE, Dexron III, and Dexron V as suitable substitutes depending on availability. Lower numbers indicate a shorter lifespan of the fluid before you need to change it.

I replace the power steering hose and try to bleed it but it mains stiff. more like manual steering as oppose to power

If the power steering had been run dry for a few days, this would destroy the P/S pump requiring replacement. If you have sealed all leaks, filled system with Dexron/Mercon, ran the steering back and forth(sometines this can and does take a while) to the stopping points, you will need to replace the pump. I would try raising the engine RPMs first and work the steering back and forth, you may just have a very very stuborn air bubble. Try this first and let me know how it went.

Bad smell, clicking noise, hard to steer

If the clicking noise is Louder when you are trying to turn have your power steering pump checked it is leaking or has failed and will need replaced, Smell is the power steering fluid that has leaked out onto your engine. and This is why it is hard to steer, pump has failed

The power steering suddenly went out on my 2000 Kia Sportage. No other problems, still drivable you just have to crank the wheel really hard. Where is the power steering fluid located? How do I check it?

Check to see if the power steering fluid reservoir has the proper amount of fluid. If the fluid is low you will hear a noise from under the hood and the steering will become harder. Look under the front of the car for oil leaks. The other thing is the belt may be broken or come off the pulley. Normally this belt is used for more than one item such as the alternator, engine water cooling pump or air conditioner compressor. If this is the case than one of the above mentioned systems would also have failed.

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.
