My owner's manual says to use ATF to top off the power steering fluid (1980 240D). Any recommendations of type/brand? Can I use fluid designed for power steering instead? Should I drain the rest of the old fluid first?
Thanks for your help.
I have always used Quaker State ATF in my '79 240D with satisfactory results. I always remove as much of the old fluid from the pump reservoir as I can before refilling. Don't overlook the necessity of replacing the filter.
As to using "Power Steering Fluid", if MB says use ATF, I would use ATF.
Hope this is helpful.
