SOURCE: power steering fluid is leaking from the top

I almost got this. Does the fluid level go down ever few days with no leaking hoses,no leaking cooler if you have one and nothing coming out of the steering rack boots. It has to go somewhere. if it just comes out the cap the pump is not pulling it and sending it to the rack so you should not have much in the way of power steering. Did you put a new belt on wrong if posible and turn the pump backwards. Only other possibility is a flow blockage. Pull the return line,disable the ignition and crank engine. You should eventually pump fluid completely through the system and out the return line like it was headed back to the resevoir.

How do you bleed the power steering on 2004 escape


CAUTION: If the air is not purged from the power steering system correctly, premature power steering pump failure can result. The condition can occur on pre-delivery vehicles with evidence of aerated fluid or on vehicles that have had steering component repairs.
  1. NOTE: A whine heard from the power steering pump can be caused by air in the system. The power steering purge procedure must be carried out prior to any component repair for which power steering noise complaints are accompanied by evidence of aerated fluid. Remove the power steering fluid reservoir cap. Check the fluid.
  1. Raise the front wheels off the floor. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02 .
  1. Tightly insert the stopper of the vacuum pump into the reservoir.
  1. Start the engine.
  1. Install the vacuum pump, apply vacuum and maintain maximum vacuum of 68-85 kPa (20-25 in-Hg).
  1. CAUTION: Do not hold the steering wheel against the stops for more than 3 to 5 seconds at a time. Damage to the power steering pump can occur. Cycle the steering wheel fully from stop to stop 10 times.
  1. Stop the engine.
  1. Release the vacuum and remove the vacuum pump.
  1. CAUTION: Do not overfill the reservoir. Fill the reservoir and install the reservoir cap.
  1. Visually inspect the power steering system for leaks.

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

Adding power steering fluid


Locating the Power Steering reservoir and adding PS fluid. 1999 Pontiac GP


  • The reservoir is clearly visible in the engine bay on the 3.1 litre engine cars.
  • For the 3.8 Ltr engine cars, use a flashlight to look down past the alternator for a black cap with a steering wheel printed on it to indicate the power steering fluid reservoir. ( passenger side of the vehicle).
  • Remove the cap of the power steering reservoir, clean the dipstick, re-insert and remove again to check the fluid level. If the level is at or below the low level mark, add fluid slowly, taking care not to fill above the MAXIMUM mark. It's best to add small amounts and re-check the level as you go to ensure you do not overfill the reservoir above the MAX level.
  • ONLY use the power steering fluid recommended for that vehicle by GM.

    Where is the power steering fluid in my 1991 deville


    Hello: The power steering pump and fluid reservoir sit on the top of the engine toward the radiator on the passenger side, there should be a cap on top in back of the pulley that will come off, on the bottom side of the cap there is a dip stick, fill the reservoir to the line on the cap. Use power steering fluid, DO NOT USE ANYTHING ELSE.
