power steering fluid
hey guys, i've had an 06 R350 for about a year and a half now, and this forum is great for info.
When I start my R350, it makes a squeeling noise like a belt noise. I need a service D soon so i thought i'd get it checked when I go for that. But a few times while driving it (it's my wife's dd) and turning I heard the squeel. so i'm assuming its power steering fluid. I checked it after pulling into the garage and there was a drop on the dipstick. after I wiped it and put it back in the fluid doesn't even touch the dipstick.
The manual says MB power steering fluid OR Dexron III ATF. Do you guys think the Dexron III ATF is good enough or should I buy the MB which is probably overpriced (or probably Dexron III ATF repackaged anyways)
also the dexron III ATF I can probably get at the local gas station, instead of driving a half hour to dealer (on low fluid)
any info would be appreciated
