1997 Buick LeSabre Limited, location of power steering reservoir
I can't locate where the power steering reservoir is, I've been checking online and under the hood for hours. There is nothing even remotely like this on either the driver's or passenger side of the vehicle. There are, however, access panels blocking the view of just about everything. I may very well just go ahead and purchase the shop manual, since this is my in-law's vehicle and their owner's manual was lost years ago.

If you are looking at the engine, on the left (passenger side) will be the belt. The alternator should be at the top of the belts route. directly below the alt is the tensioner/pulley (small) Below and to the rear of the vehicle is the power steering pump. The resevoir is attached to the pump. If you reach/look over the engine and feel below the heater hoses you will see the p/s pump resevoir cap(kinda hard to see/feel)

Locate the power steering reservoir under the hood. Check the fluid level against the marks on the dip stick; there are hot and cold marks. Add fluid as specified in your owners manual to keep the level at the appropriate mark.
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 reservoir should be located under the hood on the passenger side, above serpentine belt. Guide your eyes backwards towards the mid section of the engine on the passenger side. the small reservoir will have a small turn cap on top. (passenger side off vehicle)
