Yes, you can. Just find the power steering fluid reservoir (should be near or on the power steering pump), unscrew the cap, and fill to the max. full line.

My power steering liquid levels are topped up,but my Steering is not smooth and makes a noise like it would need fluid.What's going on?

Sounds like power steering pump is not building up enough pressure or is bleeding down. If pump is full & was not leaking fluid,it will most likely need to be changed. If fluid was down alot & you had to refill,has air pocket in system & needs to be bled.

What type of power steering fluid & capacity for 1985 ford e350?

On yours, you can use atf but power "steering fluid" works just as well.. steering fluid is used as a specific requirement on later vehicles and if you use it in the 85, you can use the leftover to top off anything you have that is newer. (can't do that with atf)

Elantra Steering Wheel Noise

Check and make sure that your power steering fluid is topped off. Could possibly problems with your power steering pump. Mine does the same and the fluid is full. I just keep an eye/ear on it. If it continues to get worse than it could be the pump going out. If the fluid is allowed to get too low, it could possibly get air in it affecting both the "feel" of the steering and making a noise.
