Hiya...on regular 2005-2009 Equinox/Torrent models use electric motor as a 'power steering' feature which does NOT use power steering fluid...a nice feature designed to save gas!
The location of the electric motor is connected onto the steering wheel shaft found beneath the instrument panel 'knee bolster' area (just above the gas/brake pedal area).

**Note: on 2008-2009 Equinox "S.S." (which had been renamed "Sport") and Pontiac Torrent "GXP" models don't use electric motor...it use belt-operated power steering pump in the engine bay area**

05? fluid already low...follow your belt that goes around , well that turns your crank shaft air con. ect. each one of these has a pully (a wheel for the belt) one of those should be your power steering..if not some may even be on the side wall..make sure it says some thing about power steering fluid on the cap.

My 2005 chevy equinox whines while its running and when i accelerate it gets louder i replaced altenator and serpintine belt and it has a electric power steering pump could it be that or the water pum


Remove the belt to see if the whine goes away first.
Then determine which device has a rough bearing or too much play
in the pulley.
If it appears to be the power steering check the fluid level.
or if you still have it put the old alternator back on.
The offending device will vibrate so you could listen to each one
with a stethoscope made from a piece of hose.
enjoy your vehicle it sounds like you take care of it.

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

My Chevy Equinox 2005 is making a noise when I turn left or right. the noise comes from the front wheels. I was trying to find where to put power steering fluid, which I could not find. What should I do?


depends on the noise , I know that sounds silly, but it works,, is the noise your hearing a clicking sound as you turn? if so, its the CV axles going out ,, From your info I don't know if you have the all wheel drive or just the front wheel drive, but if you hear clicking, its CV joints going bad, Now if what your hearing is a squealing noise, that would be the power steering pump, look at where your fan belt is and what all it drives,, one of those will be your power steering pump, some models have the fill tube for them right on the unit itself, and others have a off pump location for filling, however your year happens to be the a first generation and they used electronic power steering, and naturally you need to have it dealer checked

Ignition key will not turn on my 2005 chevy equinox


Try turning your steering wheel hard to left or right while trying to turn the key and see if that resolves tour problem. Sometimes if you shut the engine off with the wheels turned the power steering will hold pressure against the steering lock mechanism.

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...


2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.

I was trying to check the power steering fluid level in my 2005 chevy equinox but do not see where to check it, can you help me?


Your Equinox has Electric Power Steering or EPS for short and doesn't have a pump or fluid so that's why you're having trouble locating it. It uses electrical power, motors, and sensors to supply power assist when you are steering. Haven't seen any problems with them yet and they seem to work pretty well. One less thing to check under the hood which isn't all bad!

Steering wheel sticking


Is the unit an active feed back capable unit? If not then I'd look at the steering column bearings. Although the speed at which you are driving should have bearing on the bearing (pun intended).
