When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen


When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen? =============================================
1. Not enough information and you have not identified the vehicle either.


2. Coolant cannot leak to the PS system. They are entirely separate systems and unconnected.

3. If you have an auto transmission then in some models there is a section of the radiator used for cooling the auto transmission hydraulic fluid . IF there is a breach in the radiator between the 2 sections then coolant can flow into the auto trans fluid and vice versa. If you find there is pink hydraulic fluid in the coolant when draining the radiator then it will be auto transmission fluid.

In that event you will need to replace the radiator and to have the auto trans serviced now or the transmission will fail if the hydraulic fluid has been contaminated.

What kind of power steering and brake fluids do I use on a 2006 town and country van?


You can use any fluid marked as power steering fluid. (not transmission fluid) Use dot3 brake fluid in brake systems. Don't use synthetics in brake systems unless system has been completely disassembled and cleaned.
For better service life, remove brake fluid from reservoir with a turkey baster once a year and refill with new fluid (no bleeding required) You can also drain power steering and re-fill every two years by removing return line to pump, allowing it to drain, then re-connecting and re-filling. Nothing lasts forever, but this helps it last a lot longer.

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

Were do I find the power steering cap an transmission fluid cap..


under your hood you will see three fluid reservoirs only two of wich will have twist caps. one is for water and the other is for power steering... the smaller one will be your power steering reservoir. as for the transmission fluid it is to be poured directly into the transmission. there will be a cap or bolt on the top that will need to be removed, after that you will need a long set funnel to reach it. good luck.

I need to add some power steering fluid to the reservoir. I don't have any but I do have automatic transmission fluid. Can I use that?


Hi,
I would not recommend adding transmission fluid in your power steering pump.
Years ago one could get away with it.
If you do not have a Audi dealer near by,
Parts houses have a universal power steering fluid for sale.

Power steering fluid


Checking the power steering fluid level at least once a month is a good idea, since as components in the high pressure system wear out, the possibility of leaks increases. Always stay alert for changes in steering wheel operation. If you suddenly find it hard to turn the wheel, check the steering fluid immediately.
Steps:
Step 1:Apply the parking brake and place the transmission in "Park" (automatic) or "Neutral" (manual).
Step 2:Check the level of the steering fluid in the reservoir. If your car is equipped with a see-through plastic tank, compare the level with the markings on the side the container. Other systems are equipped with a dipstick inside a plastic tube, or have a dipstick mounted on the reservoir cap.
Step 3:Pull the dipstick or remove the reservoir cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean shop rag. Insert the dipstick or replace the cap and remove it again to check the fluid level.
Step 4:
Make sure the level is within the crosshatched area on the dipstick or at the "Full" mark. If necessary, add steering fluid.
Step 5:
Place a small funnel or a funnel with a flexible hose on the dipstick tube or reservoir opening to add fluid.
Hope this helped your troubles!

Where is the power steering reservoir located on the 1990 Toyota Carolla?


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.
