Question about 2005 Buick LaCrosse
I'm going to assume that you have the 3.8L automatic transmission like mine.
The pump is directly underneath the alternator, between the engine head and the firewall. It is somewhat difficult to find, let alone to remove the filler cap and check the oil level on the dipstick.
Viewed from the front of the car looking rearward at the engine, find the serpentine belt on your left. Follow it rearward to the alternator which sets high on the engine about four inches from the firewall. The alternator has a bunch of slots around it's perimeter. The power steering pump is about six inches below it. There are two rubber hoses about one inch in diameter against the firewall going to the pump. The filler cap/dipstick is on top, but is difficult to remove and replace. Be careful to not get dirt in the pump when removing and replacing the cap.
