Ihave a car ford taurus year 1999 my problem is the power steering pump if ishot down the engine the fluid will come out wiht alot of preasure on the reservoir even though it was ina correct level, th


when filling the power steering pump, add enough fluid that you can see it inside the pump down low. turn the tires all the way to the left then to the right. then straighten the tires. this allows the fluid to go in to the system. add more fluid and check with the power steering cap level gauge. if the engine has warmed up add fluid to the hot level on the power steering cap gauge. do not overfill.

Where do you put power steering fluid in a 2007 malibu Ltz.


Power Steering Fluid Power steering pumps are ordinarily lubricated with power steering fluid. Use the correct type for the vehicle. Check the owner's manual if you are unsure.

Usually it's a belt driven power steering fluid pump that has hoses that lead to the rack and pinion steering.

Unscrew the cap and add power steering fluid to it there.
