You have to pour the fluid in the same place where you check it. Use a small funnel.

In my '94 LeSabre, the power steering fluid reservoir is located at the top, rear, passenger side corner of the engine.  It is a small plastic container with a black plastic cap that says, "Power Steering" on it.

Use what the cap tells you. Many stores have p/s fluid and it is less expensive. ATF will work in them with no problem for that year model.

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.

I have a 1992 BMW 525 I manual transmission what kind of fluid do I put in the ATF oil only reservoir?


You should be able to use most Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF), although if you have a manual shift car, then there is no ATF.
Check the fluid level careful if you do have an ATF container, since it is very rare that you would lose fluid from the transmission.

Trans fluid in radiator tray


You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

When replacing the transmission fluid, where is the reservoir for the fluid?


The transmission itself is the reservoir, there is no separate tank like a power steering pump has.

I accidently drained the auto trans when changing my oil on a 2001 passat.How do I get the fluid back in the trans?


Right next to the plug that you removed that drained the transmission fluid is another plug, which is used to fill the transmission with fluid. You will need some type of hand pump and a reservoir to hold the transmission fluid. Parts stores sell a small pump that screws onto the top of gallon sized gear lube bottles. This would be ideal, since it has the hoses necessary to transfer the fluid from the reservoir or bottle, to the transmission. Pump fluid into the transmission until a little begins to run out of the fill hole. replace the plug in the transmission and start the engine, let it warm up, then move the gearshift thru all the gears. Put the transmission in neutral and check the fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. If you decide to replace the fluid with fresh fluid, use only fluid designated for your vehicle to avoid damage to the transmission.
