My sisters 'new' 1993 414sli decided to throw a wobbly and dump all its power steering fluid!! :sad3: thing is, it came out of the pump joint :yikes: - where the two halves are joined together, you can see where the gasket has blown.
First question - is there a pressure release valve on these, and is that likely to be the problem? Cars only done 60k btw.
Second question is related to my car ('97 414) and the colour of its power steering fluid - I noticed that the fluid that was dumped from sisters car was red; the colour of the fluid in mine is black as anything... should I change it, and why would it have gone black? This car on 70k btw.
Hope that makes sense! I did a search and didn't find anything related...
