if your steering wheel is hard do you mean its hard to turn it? If that is the case locate your power steering fluid bottle under the bottle it sits close to the water bottle resevoir and see if you have enough power steering fluid in. If by chance you have enough in then your next step will be to locate the power steering pressure switch and look if its damaged by chance.
It basically depends up on ,what is your car model and year.But the fluid is located in reservoir.
The power steering fluid reservoir is located next to the coolant overflow tank and the windshield washer fluid reservoir. The location of reservoir can be different or some car model ans year. Thanks.Helpmech.
Make sure that your vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is cool before you check fluid levels. Power steering fluid and other fluids read at different levels when warm instead of cool. Locate the power steering fluid reservoir. It is located under the hood of your Toyota Corolla on the passenger side next to the engine. The reservoir is connected to the power steering pump. Remove the cap and use the dipstick to check the fluid level. For the most accurate reading, clean off the dipstick with a rag first, then re-insert and remove for the fresh reading. Add automatic transmission fluid or power steering fluid approved for use in Toyota vehicles if the fluid is below the low level mark. Add fluid gradually to keep for over filling the reservoir. this will help.thanks.
the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..
if you have a hydraulic power steering pump it is located on the side next to the firewall and serpentine belt. useing a flash light may help.if your steering is electric there is no fluid.the electric motor is under the dash on the drivers side. hope this helps.
Locate the cap to the power steering fluid reservoir
Remove cap and fill reservoir with GM Power Steering Fluid (P/N 89021184) or any fluid a knowledgeable parts department says is compatible. It may not look like much but there are a few dozen steering fluids available out there and lots of systems aren't compatible with many of them (wrong fluid will disintegrate seals, pumps, etc...)
