Where do i put the fulid for the power stearing


What size motor do you have? There is a small resevoir, the cap will say power steering fluid or something similar. It has a dipstick attached. Level is different depending on whether the system is hot or cold. Feeling the fluid temp in resevoir would be a good indicator. DO NOT overfil! Uses very little at a time to add to it. Best to do while engine is running, add a little if low and work steering wheel side to side several times then re-check. Repeat if nessesary. Mike

What liquids go in each resevoir?


Coolant in 50% concentration goes into the coolant overflow bottle. Windshield wiper fluid into the wiper fluid bottle. Power steering fluid into the power steering fluid bottle.
You do not need to add any other fluids to these. Do not add water to the washer fluid bottle for example, if you drive in a climate that would allow it to freeze.

Power steering


NO, DOT 4 fluid is brake fluid, not power steering fluid. The power steering fluid resevoir is black with a green cap.

Bleeding power steering pump


Just did mine...unplug 2-3 of your plug wires so the vehicle doesn't start but turns over. Turn over motor a few seconds then refill power steering resevoir. Repeat until resevoir quits needing fluid...replace wires and drive slowly turning steering wheel from just short of all the way right then repeat to the left. This will get the air out of the lines. Check the fluid after this last step.
