You know, I actually did. The steering felt a bit more "lubed" to me. The original fluid had been in there for 85K miles after all.

Yes, Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF. You can use any Dexron 3 ATF.

I've got a leak that looks like its from the bottom of the steering rack, right where a 22mm bolt is (not the banjo bolt) and I looked on realoem.com but I can't find any parts like that on there because I thought maybe a washer needed to be changed out or something, anyone have input on this?

Thumbs up

Great thread Brandon! Thanks!

I had an easier way of changing my power steering fluid in the 325: badly leaking power steering lines.
