Looking at the engine from the front of the car the power steering fluid is located on the left hand side and has a black plastic screw-cap about 3inches in diameter open that and pour in fluid. be sure to watch the level markers on the side so you dont overfill. also if you need to keep topping up powersteering fluid you have a leak and should get it fixed asap.

Replaced engine in 97 CL. All put together but power steering fluid has a lot of air in it and making alot of noise. How do I get air out of power steering system?


Let it sit with the engine off. this will help the air bubble seperate from the fluid. With the reservoir full (using only hoda/acura specific P/S fluid), the engine off and the front wheels off the ground turn the steering wheel full left and full right several times while keeping an eye on the fluid level. Then start the engine and let it idle. Eventually the rest of the air will work its way out. Heavily cavitated fluid will take some time.

You can also add about an ounce of Seafoam Motor Tune to the P/S fluid. This will help remove the air bubbles from the system.

Where do I put power steering fluid in a 2005 bmw x5


Hello Sir. Usually it would say in the owners Hand book you got with car? explaining all the controls functions of the car or 4x4? alternatively if you look under bonnet there only be four filling reservoirs: engine coolant water, washer bottle, brake Fluid,power steering. usually the engine coolant will be a largish cap about 2-3 ins either blue or black its NOT this one. The brake fluid Will be at the back of engine bay and so NOT his one. Washer bottle again will be a cap blue in color its NOT this one. the one you want should be near front of car /engine and should have a steering wheel symbol on it the caps usually smaller then the engine coolant and black attached to a small reservoir and when you remove it will have a dipstick attached to it or small spike attached to cap this is used to measure power steering fluid, hope this helps... Thanks Mike

My Mercury Cougar 93 is having steering wheel problems. The steering wheel won't move and the power steering oil has turned white. What can I do?


If the power steering fluid has turned white. There is air mixing in it. The level has probably gone too low. It also may be contaminated by now. There are other things that can be wrong but first, try the following.
Get a large basting syringe with a rubber ball on the end. Use it to remove the fluid from the power steering resevouis. As much as you can. Then put Fresh Fluid in. Run the engine and repeat removeing the old fluid and then put new fresh fluid in. Top off the fluid and run the engine. See if your power steering pump starts to work.

I dont know where to put the power steering fluid at. Please help


Hi!!

The Power Steering pump is located in the front of the engine usually on the right side, and is driven by a belt, on top of the pump there is a screw-on cap about 2" in diameter that says POWER STEERING FLUID, integrated on the cap, is the dip stick, make sure not to overfill PS deposit.

Power steering is locked up...power steering fluid full


Hi if you have no power steering assist
check to see if the power steering shaft is broken
open the hood and the power steering pump is located on lower left of the engine
use a big screw driver or even your hand and try and pull the power steering pully towards the rad
if you can move the pully out then the power steering shaft is broken and you will need to replace the power steering pump
hope this helps you
