first and it's sort of obvious... make sure the motor is off.... look for a cap at the front of the motor where the fan belt is... may even be labled power steering ... you add the fluid there

SOURCE: Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?

There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.

SOURCE: I was trying to check the power steering fluid

Your Equinox has Electric Power Steering or EPS for short and doesn't have a pump or fluid so that's why you're having trouble locating it. It uses electrical power, motors, and sensors to supply power assist when you are steering. Haven't seen any problems with them yet and they seem to work pretty well. One less thing to check under the hood which isn't all bad!

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?


I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

My 2005 chevy equinox whines while its running and when i accelerate it gets louder i replaced altenator and serpintine belt and it has a electric power steering pump could it be that or the water pum


Remove the belt to see if the whine goes away first.
Then determine which device has a rough bearing or too much play
in the pulley.
If it appears to be the power steering check the fluid level.
or if you still have it put the old alternator back on.
The offending device will vibrate so you could listen to each one
with a stethoscope made from a piece of hose.
enjoy your vehicle it sounds like you take care of it.

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

My Chevy Equinox 2005 is making a noise when I turn left or right. the noise comes from the front wheels. I was trying to find where to put power steering fluid, which I could not find. What should I do?


depends on the noise , I know that sounds silly, but it works,, is the noise your hearing a clicking sound as you turn? if so, its the CV axles going out ,, From your info I don't know if you have the all wheel drive or just the front wheel drive, but if you hear clicking, its CV joints going bad, Now if what your hearing is a squealing noise, that would be the power steering pump, look at where your fan belt is and what all it drives,, one of those will be your power steering pump, some models have the fill tube for them right on the unit itself, and others have a off pump location for filling, however your year happens to be the a first generation and they used electronic power steering, and naturally you need to have it dealer checked

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...


2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.
