Question about 2001 Buick Regal
Where do you find the dip stick to check the fluid levels for the power steering?
The power steering resevoir is underneathe the altenatror or your vehicle. you have a gm 3800 series II engine the resevoir is located near the fire wall on the passengerside right under the altenator. the easiest way to check this is to remove the altenator. I say this because there is not much room to put your hands in that area because your coolant overflow tank is there as well. disconnect the ground to the battery first. then disconnect the power lead to altenator. remove serpentine belt. then remove the plug from the altenator. remove the bolts to the altenator and move the altenator aside there you will see the resevoir for the power steering. installation is in reverse order... please rate this......thanks

To get to the power steering reservoir cap you don't need to remove the alternator. just get someone with a skinny hand to reach down there and get it. If you can't reach just remove the strut bar and remove the coolant reservoir and place to the side. Then you will have plenty of room to reach the cap. Removing the alternator is a waste of time. Time = money
