tonight i changed my power steering fluid and reservoir and thought i would do a simple write up on how i did this
1. jack front of car up and put on axle stands so that the front wheels are off the ground
2. using a turkey baster or large syringe suck as much fluid out of the reservoir as...

I need a few tips about manual traismision fluid.
When I drop the oil through the drain bolt,a certain amount of oil remains inside the transmision(mechanic told me that).
I want to know how to remove out all the oil from transmision.
Should I check oil level when the...

Started bleeding on the rear... first wheel bled OK. Then suddenly, I think either at the end of the first wheel or during the second, the pedal went very soft (Ignition was off the whole time). Pedal continues to be soft and very difficult to get any fluid moving...
Trying to find the original red power steering fluid and the spec but can't seem to find it for sale anywhere!
Does anyone know where to get it from? And also the amount required for a completely empty system refill :)
Only seen green for sale but I'm not going to be doing the switch!
I'm seeking stories with positive outcomes!
As posted elsewhere, it appears (though not officially confirmed), that the Giulia Veloce I ordered back on the 26th September is stuck somewhere in the Giulia/Stelvio brake fluid debacle. Communications I've been having with customer services in...
Well I have been away a while as my wife's 159 has been boringly reliable. However, recently she has had the power steering get a bit notchy and very noisy. Now I have done all the reading before and repeated the reading last week before finally deciding that I will try the red to green fluid...
New 159 owner here, just starting on replacing a number of fluids & filters on my 2007 2.4 jtd wagon (dark metallic blue, light tan interior, stunning).
Power steering, had very occasional groans so checked the fluid (read everything around on red/green already).
Dirty red fluid...
Hi all, today I have drained my power steering fluid and added the Gi-r green fluid rather than the red fluid.
The good news is the steering feels much better now and generally less noisy.
The bad news isn’t it vibrates more and I now have a slight squeak when turning the wheel at slow...
As I point out to my dealer that the level of brake fluid is below Minimum, I am told that this is normal and due to the brake pads wearing out. They decided not to add any fluid.
Any comments/similar stories?
Note: no warning light on my dashboard: just my observation directly looking...
So I am slowly tackling each and every annoying little issue on my car. I know my tie rods are worn so I have some Lemforder inner rods and rubber covers coming along with some Febi Bilstein outer tie rods.
I am also going to finally sort out my power steering vibration issue...
Good afternoon folks, looking to do a brake fluid change for the first time ever using a Gunson Ezibleed one man kit on my phase 2 TS Spider.
Questions for anyone done this before:
How much new brake fluid will i need to buy ?
Does the ABS get messed up using this one man bleed kit ?
So, i've been searching (a lot) around here, and on the web on general but I'm still a bit confused about what I should do.
Long story short, my '06 159 still have the red fluid, from factory I think.
It's level on the reservoir is a bit low and I'd like to put some to get it back up...
Hi I have 06 plate Brera with 150kms on the clock. My power steering has started to groan a lot more than usual, so I had a look under the bonnet. The reservoir is not frothing when the engine is turned on but it is low on the fluid. The fluid is red/brown in colour. There is fluid around the...
I am running an 07 2.2jts brera with 65k on the clock.
I now have the old classisc of pas noises on cold starts when turning the steering wheel.
I have not yet inspected the resevoir, but do you think now is the time to swap to green or is it too risky due to potential leaks?
So as per my other thread I am not the proud owner of a 2.4 Q4 MY08.
I ordered last night the complete timing belt kit with water pump and also a new manifold whilst it's being done as I'm told it's practically simple once the belt is being done.
Anyway I have the reddish PAS fluid and I do feel...
