Thread: Proper Fluid for Power Steering

    Proper Fluid for Power Steering

    Took the Z8 out for a ride this afternoon, and checked fluids upon returning. The power steering fluid is low, the cap says use Dexron III transmission fluid. I have read that Dexron III has been superceded by Dexron IV, which apparently is semi-synthetic. Does anyone know if there is any problem using Dexron IV? The label states it is backward compatible with Dexron III, but wondered if anyone has used it without issue.Bill

    OOOPS! I meant to write Dexron VI, not IV. Note to self-need to proofread before hitting the submit button. Thanks.

    Bill,

    Dexron III is still available (https://www.amazon.com/88-06-Automat...smission+fluid) But maybe you should check your local BMW dealer
