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.

How do i add power steering fluid to a 2005 mercedes benz ml350?


most parts stores for foriegn cars will advise you on this, but in my experience the pump/reservoir assembly may have either a cap on it or it may use a reservoir mounted on the firewall or either side that looks like a slave cylinder reservoir. it should be marked somewhere for power steering only..this reservoir may have a cap thats removeable and the full line will be visible on the outside of it, with power steering fluid only, fill to line..in exrteme cases, there is a hose that comes up to a cap somewhere(usually these types of refill setups are rare because it confuses the owner)where the fluid gets added, I have seen so many different styles of refil setups, so it just depends on which is used by the manufacturer of the car..be careful not to mix fluids as this will not help your situation..brake fluid wont mix with power steering fluid so just be warned..

Where is the power steering fluid located?


It basically depends up on ,what is your car model and year.But the fluid is located in reservoir. The power steering fluid reservoir is located next to the coolant overflow tank and the windshield washer fluid reservoir. The location of reservoir can be different or some car model ans year.

2001 bmw 740il where do i add power steering fluid


I have not seen this particular model but the reservoir should be toward the front of the engine compartment on the (US) driver side, It has a big black plastic cap about 2.5" in diameter with indentations around the perimeter to grip. On some models they had to tuck it down where you have to reach down between other components to get to it, but on a 7 I would expect it to be up high and easily accessible.
This model came with two styles of reservoir. The standard reservoir is about quart-sized. If the car has self-leveling suspension, the reservoir is taller.
If you intend to own the car a long time, I suggest changing the power steering fluid every 2-3 years when you change the brake fluid and the coolant. If the power steering fluid is not nice and clean and red, it needs changing.

The oil in my power steering is black how do I change it


First thing you need to do is remove thwe return line from your power steering reservoir. Thats the thing you put the power steering fluid in. Run that hose to a large container where you can catch a lot of fluid in. Now you want to make sure you have your new power steering fluid on hand before you start and another person would be very helpful also. Have your helper start the car and turn the wheel back and forth while you pour power steering fluid in the reservoir. Do not let your power steering fluid run completely out you can ruin your pump and or steering box. Continue to pour in new steering fluid until the fluid coming out of the hose thats in the bucket is clean fluid. Turn vehicle off reconect the hose to the reservoir and top off. With the lid off reservoir start the vehicle back up and turn wheel all the way back and forth many times(do not turn it to its furthest position where it bumps) continue to make sure the fluid level is always full. By turning the wheel back and forth you are bleeding the lines to get all the air out. Do that a few times, refill and put the cap back on. You just changed your power steering fluid. I f your vehicle is old you may want to get new rubber hoses for your power steering system. hoses degrade over time and eventually they start to flake off into your fluid which can damage parts. Always a good idea to replace hoses especially if they are soft.

How do i flush the hydraulic steering system


You really can't flush out the steering system fluid other then siphoning the fluid out of the steering pump reservoir. This is the easy way.
The hard way:
Remove the filler cap from the top of your power steering system then disconnect the reservoir's hose. It should be located on the bottom of the reservoir. The hose can be tough to remove, so make sure you have plenty of patience.

Replace the reservoir's hose with another hose. It should lead to an empty container. You'll use this container to store the old power steering fluid as it leaves the reservoir. Lift the front end of your car off the ground by using a car jack.

Add new power steering fluid to the reservoir. As you add the new lubricant, it will force the old lubricant into the tube you've connected to the bottom of the reservoir.

Climb into the drivers seat and rack your steering wheel back and forth. The wheel should be locked in place, allowing only a slight range of mobility. This will help the extra lubricant within the power steering system to drain.

Watch the empty container. It should fill with old lubricant. Once the old lubricant has been flushed and you see clean fluid replacing it, you've finished the hard part.

Disconnect your hose and move the container. Replace the original reservoir hose. Pour new, clean power steering fluid into the reservoir. Rack your steering wheel a few more times to squeeze out air that might be trapped in the lines. Replace the filer cap and close your done.

Thank you for suing fixya and good luck

When I turn the steering wheel, I hear a whining sound that gets louder the quicker I turn the wheel. It happens when turning left or right. Is this power steering? Or maybe an issue with the wheels?


u have a defectgive power steering pump, check the fluid level 1st, if that is ok flush the system and replace the pump, this will require a special power steering pulley puller and installer tool.
