    Hi i have a z4 3.0 on a 2003 with an intermitent steering fault. The steering works perfectly then all of a sudden doesnt work at all. Some days will not even work when starting the car. It does not have the notchy feeling wich alot of people have had problems with, when it works it works perfect.
    I have read alot of things about this and it seems very common, but nobody seems to actually explain how they solved it. It does not get affected by the temperature, it could happen or work fine in hot weather or freezing cold weather.
    i real realy could do with some help on this from someone who has resolved the problem or has a good idea of how to.

    Have you checked the oil level in the reservoir recently? Also what colour lid does the PS oil reservoir have. Some are black and use Auto Gearbox ATF oil and some are green and use a special Pentosin oil.

    The notchiness in the systems that use normal ATF oil that people talk about can sometimes be cured with a bottle of Lubrizol oil which BMW sell
