Time to change the power steering fluid. Some cars use power steering fluid, while other cars use transmission fluid. Do not use the wrong fluid in your car or you will have even bigger problems.

I just recently replaced the power steering pump in my car after that we bleed the line and everything seemed fine the next day power steering fluid was spewing out the cap and I can't figure out why now...


there is still air in the system-jack the front of the car off the ground turn the key just until steering unlocks and turn the steering wheel completly side to side at least a dozen times-watch the fluid level it most not run out of the reservoir or it will suck more air into system and continue to foam-cheers Denny

Noisy power steering on a 1997 Toyota carry when turning. Loud humming noise and felt through steering wheel.


check the power steering fluid level and there shouldn`t be any air in the system that will show as bubbles or foam in the oil.the oil should be clean and not look like a grey or silver colour.

Where do you pour the power steering fluid


Look at the engine where the belts are. You should see the power steering pump. The pump has a cap with a built in dipstick (black in color). Twist it 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it off. The power steering fluid goes in there. Be carefull not to overfill it because when it gets hot and you turn your wheels, it will overflow out of the top.

My power stering is not working ok i have replace the power stering pump and i have check the sector and it is ok the car work well when it is runing but when i stop it turn hard i have check if it is air...


Power Steering Fluid Filling & Bleeding
  1. Repair the power steering system.
  2. Turn the engine OFF.
  3. Raise the vehicle so the front wheels are off the ground.
  4. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left.
  5. Fill the power steering fluid reservoir to the FULL/COLD level and leave the cap off.
  6. Have an assistant watch the fluid in the reservoir while you turn the steering wheel fully to the right and fully to the left at least 20 times. NOTE: On systems with long return lines or fluid coolers, turn the steering wheel from lock to lock at least 40 times.
  7. Add fluid as needed to keep the fluid level at the FULL/COLD level.
  8. Install the reservoir cap and start the engine.
  9. Center the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  10. Run the engine for about 2 minutes.
  11. Turn the steering wheel in both directions and verify correct power steering operation.

Hi there! I'm having a major problem with the power steering fluid pouring out of my 1998 Chevy 4x4 suburban...I was wondering if the entire unit may need replacing or it could be just as simple as a hose?...


Could be either, to check fill will power steering fluid, start engine, have some one turn steering wheel, and see if it's coming out of a hose or from the back of the power steering pulley, if it's a hose replace power steering hose, if it's from the back of the pulley, replace power steering pump, hope this was very helpful.

I have a 97 taurs with a steering problem. It makes a humming noise that gets louder the faster I go. It pulls to the right, an when I go around a left corner it feels like it just doesn't want to turn...


check to see if you have power steering fluid. if your low fill it up. (most cases thats all it is) check around for any leaks or parts to the power steering unit for and damage (hoses, pump, rer, rack and pinion, any seals or such. you might have a leak somewhere. when your looking for leaks fill the res up with power steering fluid. turn the car on. and have someone turn the wheel so get the fluid to build up pressure in the system.

Check your power steering fluid level. Top it off with power steering fluid only.

The pump and or steering mechanism may be failing. Be very careful driving this vehicle as a full failure could leave you without any steering.
