2004 BMW X5 3.0i my steering is making a groaning noise So I checked
steering fluid looks low Went to auto zone they gave me CHF 11 which is
power steering fluid but my cap says Atf . I'm not sure on what kind to use
.I've been given several different answers n three different places sold me
three different kinds. What would be the best recommendation I have Castrol
ATF import for Honda doesn't mention bmw and is Dex / mecron , which
autozone said they didn't recommend and gave me dextrin 6 for GM cars,
also have auto tech synthetic blend multi vehicle AtF which one would be
Your car calls for CHF 11s. They gave u the correct ine. I was reading up on it and it says Bmw has been using the same power sterring reservoir since mid 80's and placed a bmw sticker over the ATF label, it must've cane off
No, I disagree, If the cap says ATF, use Dex/Merc or equivalent. Open up the reservoir and put a screwdriver in and wipe on a white paper towel. Is it reddish in color? Then use ATF. CHF 11 does not mix with ATF. The cap is right.
