2010 equinox power steering fluid

The 2010 v6 has a power steering dip stick below the engine cover. Take off the oil cap, grab the plastic engine cover on each side and lift it off (it snaps off and on). Put the oil cap back on so you don\'t lose it. You will see the power steering dipstick at the top of the engine. This only applies to the v6. Mine was loud, and I added a bit of fluid and it was fine.

Power steering pump installation

If you hear a buzzing or zinging type of sound when you turn the wheels right or left, that means there is still some air in the pump or pump return lines. To stop the noise and protect the pump, block the rear wheels, place the transmission in park, and apply the parking brake. Jack up the front tires approximately two inches from the ground, making sure they are supported with something strong under the chassis so that it doesn't fall. Loosen the power steering cap just enough to where it will stay on, yet release any remaining air from the system, start the engine, very slowly rotate the front wheels to the right then to the left, this will release any air from the pump and the pump returning lines. When you don't hear any of the buzzing sounds, that means the air was released. Turn off he engine, remove the power steering cap, you will see the small air bubbles rising to the top. If you get any more buzzing sounds from the power steering system, repeat this process adding just enough fluid recommended. I know this sounds unusual, I have worked on Dodges for 43 years and my dad the main mechanic taught me this from his experience. This will also work on many other vehicles with power steering. Hope this helps with your power steering installation.

NO!!! Just the cowling under the steering column. Disconnect your battery as you don;t want to accidentally trip the air bag!

Power steering fluid leaks

Power steering fluid can leak from several places. To locate the leak, I would suggest topping off the PSF reservoir, and having someone turn the wheels back and forth. Watch any lines or connections for leakage.

I cannot find the steering pump and wanted to know if it even has power steering, I have been told it should but no one can find it, help me PLEASE.......

Of couse I don't know what year, or model.. but almost all vehicles have power steering. If you have an SC or SL, (around mid 90's to early 2000ish..) it will be under the filler cap for power steering, facing the front end to the rear left of the engine, and has a belt that drives it.

I cant find the location of power steering

I assume that you are speaking of your power steering pump. You can follow your belts and the pump will be powered by one of the belts. You will recognize the pump because it will have a cap on top of it where you can check and or add PS fluid, the correct level will be indicated by a dipstick that is integrated into the cap. Good Luck. I hope this helps.

Passat 2002 v6 steering fluid deposit

Oops, sorry about that.....

The power steering fluid reservoir is located just behind the drivers (LHD) headlight, just forward of the washer fluid reservoir.

The reservoir has a green cap on it and a plastic trim panel to conceal the sides, it is circled here:

Noisy Power Steering Pump

I doubt it is the fluid. I would guess more likely that the pump is going bad. If it is making a whining sould all the time or when steering at a stop, the pump is beginning to fail.
