Thanks for your help.

Hi Ken,

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.
