Power Steering Fluid is Milky


Recommended Posts

So I've just picked up a 2006/06 Jaguar X-Type 2.2D Estate 

I've been digging deep under the bonnet, she could do with a service as the oil is black and the coolant looks tired.... But, the Power Steering Fluid looks like Milky Coffee! 

Steering feels a little heavy, but not making any strange noises.... 

Where do I need to look for symptoms? 

How big a job is it to change it?? 

Missed owning a Jaaaaaaaaaag 🤦🏼‍♂️

The wonderful internet brings me here - with the exact same coffee replacement for my steering fluid (x-type 2.0 D though) - hows @thephreshman yours looking a year later? I will opt for a flush first - but if anyone has any ideas as to the initial cause it would be great.

Water getting into the system. Could be condensation,.chidders

I'll see what the garage says next week - it's proper milky coffee - any major components to have him check?
