    We cannot find where to check the power steering fluid under the hood. Do you know the location? Or where to check if there are leaks?

    its electric power steering, go to the dealer with this problem

    Hi, I have this same exact car and although this didn't happen to me, I do know that these cars had a recall on the power steering (i don't know car terms so don't attack me if my wording is incorrect!). The lady that previously owned my 07 G5 took it to a Gm/Chevy/Pontiac dealer and they replaced the defected parts for free.

    Also, if you ever have fuel leaking or smell gas but kind find a leak, there was also a recall with these cars that had to do with that too. I took mine to a Chevy dealer and they fixed everything for me for free and I get MUCH BETTER gas mileage now.

    Anyways, here is a link that tells about the recalls:http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2007/pont...
    Recall Date:
    MAR 03, 2010
    Model Affected:
    2007 Pontiac G5

    Consequences:

    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING MOTOR FREE OF CHARGE. OWNERS ARE BEING NOTIFIED ON A ROLLING BASIS BETWEEN MARCH 29 THROUGH NOVEMBER 2010. A COPY OF THE MAILING SCHEDULE IS LOCATED IN THE RECALL FILE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438 AND PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668 OR AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

    All you need to do is call your local GM/Chevy/Pontiac dealer, let them know your problem, give them your VIN and make sure your car is qualified for the free service (it should be!) and drop it off and they will take care of everything.

    Hope this helped! (Oh and if you know anything about sunroof drain tubes leaking, look up my question and help me answer it, please. Thanks so much!)

  • You have Electric Power Steering (EPS) not the traditional power steering pump. So there is no place to put power steering fluid in your vehicle.

  • Hope this helps.

The G 5 has electric power steering, there is no power steering fluid. Try getting your strut bearings replaced, they may be sized, making it hard to turn the wheel.

Have a 2007 Pontiac G5 and need to add power steering fluid.


its tricky. its behind the engine. If you pop the hood and you go to the left side, look behind the block and it chould be about half way down or so. You should see the cap for it. I think that was a horrible idea on pontiacs part. Happy motoring!

I have a 2007 Pontiac G5 and the power steering started to fail gradually until now that it does it after driving the car on a stray line for a few seconds, if I turn the driving wheel left and right...


Keep in Mind that WITH NO POWER STEERING AT ALL The Faster you Drive the EASYER it is to Stear Lft & Rght. Having Said that If your Car is Hard to Steer While Sitting in PARK and Turning the Steering Wheel Left AND Right , This Sounds as if your Power Steering Pump Is Bad for1 and it May have Contaminated The STEERING RACK , this is A MAIN Component in the Steering System.
