My 159 (2009) with 50,000km on clock, has started making a heavy gurgling noise from the PAS pump. It's worse when cold but generally makes a noise all the time. If you take the top off the reservoir, it's all frothy. Almost as though sucking in air. The pipes all have new hose clips, so suspect a fault with the previous owner.
Now, I've read about the different colour oil but does this year car suffer an issue?? It's a 2009 1.9 JTDm. Is it a case of replacing oil and bleeding through or are there pipes that harden and need replacement?? Cheers
