Audi Steering Oil
I like to ask people out there whether the steering oil uses a special oil.
Recently I used Prestone steering oil. But after awhile I noticed that my
pressure accumulator was leaking. I don't know whether this has something
to do with the Audi oil having a higher viscosity or that the accumulator
(or its O-rings) are out. Does someone out there ever tried using a generic
steering oil without any side effects?
On another note, my Audi 5000S ('85) seem to drag through when I am going
around 60 mph. The transmisssion seemed to word pretty hard. Someone
had adjusted the throttle linkage to reduce my rough idle when cold starting.
I think the cold start sensor is out or the warm-up valve thermoswitch is goodbye. Is this type of car know to blow these type of components?
Thanks in advance for all the help.
