BMW says (life long) that about the trans fluid in my 335i too, but boy did it change for the better when I did a fluid change on it....  Planned obsolescence my friends..   I was reading about a W124 Mercedes diesel taxi cab the other night that the engine went its first 1,000,000 miles on fluid and filter changes.

30k for power steering fluid, and brake fluid.

30k , or 24 months for brake fluid because it is hydroscopic, is a good interval for these fluids but the Chrysler Corp didn't think to mention this in either the factory service manual or the owners manual.

Thank you, I will set the reminder for 24 months.

Manual transmission is considered life long fluid. I was changing every 100k miles now with 50 SAE changing at 50k miles. 

What do you use for a flushing fluid for the power steering?

 

Thanks

So I pulled the power steering pump with the vacuum pump.  I needed to replace a hydraboost to steering box line anyway and I wanted to get a good cleaning in there.  When reinstalling the pump to hydraboost line felt a little strange going in but seemed to smooth out and tighten down.  Fill it with fluid, wheel back and forth a few times, top off, repeat.  Finally feel like it's time to start it.  Fire it up and it is just spraying fluid out of the reservoir around that fitting (pump to hydraboost).  I ordered a new hose for that run (pump to hydraboost). Will be in late today.  Any wisdom/thoughts to share on this?
