What happens if I put steering fluid in brake fluid container?


That's a problem. Power steering is a heavy slick fluid, very similar to transmission fluid (my daughter's BMW actually takes ATF fluid in the power steering reservoir). Brake fluid is very thin, solvent-like fluid. I advise getting the system drained, flushed and refilled ASAP.

The automatic transmission pops out of drive om my 1991 BMW 525i


Low fluid will not cause it to do that, If it pops out of gear you got a (Serios) Problem i hate to tell you, End on a (BMW) count on paying $2500 end up to have it (Rebuilt) Thats what you get for buying a (Over) price toy.

My 2002 bmw 525i makes noise when turning the steering wheel


Please describe the noise. Is the noise inside the car or beneath the car? Is it a squeak, a clink, or a grind?
If the car has over 100k miles on it, and it makes a hydraulic pump whine when you turn the wheel, look in the reservoir and see if the fluid is still bright red. If the fluid has turned brown, many (including me) have been able to quiet the whine by removing the reservoir and flushing the gunked up screen in the reservoir out with solvent, and then replacing the power steering fluid with fresh fluid.
If you do this yourself, be prepared to dedicate a whole Saturday to the job. If you have any drips from your power steering hoses (common) this will give you the excuse to get in there and replace the leaking hoses while you are at it.

2007 BMW 525i warning light (red) looks like a steering wheel with a lock attached car not starting


Its the "EML" warning light in a BMW indicates a problem with the "drive by wire" throttle control system."

That red light indicates u have loss BRAKE FLUiD in ur system and needs to TOP UP the brake master. It also indicates s pressure loss in the brake system and u have to check the FLUiD, LEAK and ur BRAKE PADS!

Check all of these and tell us wut happened!

What power steering fluid do I use in my 1996 BMW 318is?


NO, NO, No, Use regular ATF in the car, this is what it was designed for, read the manual if you still have it. If you start using power steering fluid with the atf the came in the car it will eventually turn into a mud type liquid and sooner than later fail...If you have done this you will need to drain the fluid out replace with fresh atf, run the system in for a quick 15-20 min drive then drain and refill again...

Which atf fluid for bmw 2001 330Ci power steering? I know it's crucial to use the exact one when adding to a transmission but does the standard Valvolene Mercon V or such work for topping up the power...


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...

ATF fill station indicates the fluid is low in my 2001 3 series BMW. What is the fluid used for? What do I use to refill the fluid


Hi,
The ATF stands for Automatic Transmission Fluid which controls your power steering. You might have observed your steering has gotten a bit more stiff... or will eventually get to this. This ATF is different from the hydraulic fluid which controls your brakes. You need to take it to a BMW automechanic who would top it up. It is sold in containers like hydraulic...you will buy it and give it to mechanic for refilling. The container for this is in the bonnet just below the windscreen almost at bottom of engine. also ensure that the lid is not open and the container is not broken in any way to leak the ATF

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.


On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

How do i change the power steering fluid


I prefer to remove the fluid with a suction gun, do this 3 or 4 times running the engine between sucking out the fluid and refilling until the fluid is clear, ps fluid is cheap and this takes about two bottles in most cases..
