1992 W124 300D Power Steering Question

Hello all,
My merc is currently howling like a dog when I turn the wheel when it first starts up. I know I need power steering fluid as it is low, but I am wondering what to use, whether or not I need to replace it or just fill it up, and whether or not to change the filter.

All responses would be helpful.

It is the 124.128 model with the 2.5 I5 Turbo.

Try asking on the W124 forum found in the sedans section. But the first thing I would do is buy some PS fluid from a dealer and top it off. Then you should look for a leak.
