Power steering. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w140...-steering.html post #2

Since you said it's bone dry, you haven't had any steering issues?

Well my first guess was power steering but I remember the canister with the screw on top was power steering so I go a bit confused. But yeah, that post gives the info you need.

You need to clean your engine bay.. it looks as if it's never been cleaned once!


If its not an older Mercedes-Benz product than it wasn't worth building.

It's not being mean, it's being encouraging and it's also just a suggestion
