The primitive but pretty effective way to replace the fluid would be using a turkey baster to **** out the fluid in reservoir. get as much as poss. fill with new fluid, run car and steer wheel back and forth ("lock to lock") several times. **** out that fluid and repeat a couple more times. should work well

Have moanining sound when turning steering wheel right to left and vis versa. Added fluid the other day only to find large stain on ground where passenger sear would be after backing out of lot. 1997...


the moaning sound comes from air in the power steering fluid system (bubbles), the reason you have air is because of a leak, my suggestion is to jack the car up and you will probably find that the power steering rack has the leak and will require a replacement, not a n easy and clean job if you know what i mean

How do i flush the hydraulic steering system


You really can't flush out the steering system fluid other then siphoning the fluid out of the steering pump reservoir. This is the easy way.
The hard way:
Remove the filler cap from the top of your power steering system then disconnect the reservoir's hose. It should be located on the bottom of the reservoir. The hose can be tough to remove, so make sure you have plenty of patience.

Replace the reservoir's hose with another hose. It should lead to an empty container. You'll use this container to store the old power steering fluid as it leaves the reservoir. Lift the front end of your car off the ground by using a car jack.

Add new power steering fluid to the reservoir. As you add the new lubricant, it will force the old lubricant into the tube you've connected to the bottom of the reservoir.

Climb into the drivers seat and rack your steering wheel back and forth. The wheel should be locked in place, allowing only a slight range of mobility. This will help the extra lubricant within the power steering system to drain.

Watch the empty container. It should fill with old lubricant. Once the old lubricant has been flushed and you see clean fluid replacing it, you've finished the hard part.

Disconnect your hose and move the container. Replace the original reservoir hose. Pour new, clean power steering fluid into the reservoir. Rack your steering wheel a few more times to squeeze out air that might be trapped in the lines. Replace the filer cap and close your done.

Thank you for suing fixya and good luck

I need to add power steering fluid on my 2006 chevy malibu V6 3.5 liter engine were is it located


You will want to verify you have hydraulic power steering. Electronic power steering was an option on Malibu's and this may be why you cannot find the reservoir. The power steering pump would be driven by the belt in the event you have a hydraulic system. Thus making it easy to locate.

Power steering pump making noise


It may quiet down for a while but the damage is done so the pump will eventually need to be replaced.

Where do I pour the power Steering Fluid?


Pull up on the engine cover. It should pop off with slight force. The power steering fluid reservoir is under it.
