Depends on how you define closed system, Just the spot to add the fluid is all that you should have open. It's the Green cap near the drivers front head light (it'll have a little steering wheel logo on the cap) It takes special VW CHF 11S fluid (most autozones, carquest etc.) should have it.

I have a loud tic and wineing sound and the oil light comes on i add oil and it got worst


Make rure you are using 5W oil. That is if it a 1.8T. The loud tic and wineing sound could be the power stearing pump. Check to see if that is low. It is located front right behind the DS headlight under the hood. DO not for any reason use any other brand then VW PS fluid. The kind sold at auto part stores will cost you $300 at least in damage. They will ruin the hose and make any leak worse.

Easiest way to add power stearing fluid to a 2001 chevy impala v6 ??


Locate the cap to the power steering fluid reservoir
bc25493.jpg Remove cap and fill reservoir with GM Power Steering Fluid (P/N 89021184) or any fluid a knowledgeable parts department says is compatible. It may not look like much but there are a few dozen steering fluids available out there and lots of systems aren't compatible with many of them (wrong fluid will disintegrate seals, pumps, etc...)

Bleeding brakes


Simple way - takes 2 people. Get a small jar, and fill it part way with some brake fluid. Then use a short length of hose (one that fits snugly over the bleed screw), and keep one end in the brake fluid. With the engine off, loosen the bleed screw, and have the brake pedal slowly depressed. Close the bleed screw BEFORE releasing the brake pedal, and repeat until no air bubbles come out the hose. Top up the brake reserve with fluid.
