Customer Question

I recently noticed a fluid leak from my 2002 CL 600. My ABC reservois level looks fine, but my power steering reservois is low. I've read somewhere that both systems take the same fluid, but it appears to me that the power steering fluid is more amber in color while the ABC system is more green from the Pentosin CHF11S.What is the factory spec for the power steering fluid? I want to be absolutely sure I add the correct fluid.Please also confirm that the power steering reservois is the one closest to the front of the vehicle, with the ABC reservois being behind it.

Your 2002 CL600 dose call for Pentosin CHF 11S PS fluid .

Does that Pentosin come in varieties that are both green and amber? I'm mystified by the two different colors.

Not that I am aware of but there may be some aftermarket brands that do and that may be what you have in your system as well.
