Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Put wiper fluid in an unmarked container.

Put wiper fluid into container under hood which I thought was the wiper fluid reservoir.  However, as soon as I started pouring it in, I noticed the fluid already in there looked oily.  It is a whitish container on the right side close to window.
If I had a diagram, I could tell what that particular container is for.
Please help.
I have a 2002 Chevy S10 pickup.

You probably put it in the radiator overflow tank. you should drain theradiator and refill with antri freeze. it will not harm the engine but be on the safe side.

Where to put wiper fluid?


the wiper fluid container is located on the right side as your facing the front of your car... it should be a big plastic container marked washer fluid. in my Buick it is right by the master brake cylinder, just hooked on the right side of your car.... lift your hood, as you face the front, look for a large plastic container marker, washer fluid. add fluid.

How to change the fluid of the power steering ?


Open the engine hood.

There will be several fluid reservoirs under the bonnet. If the car / truck has power steering, one of them will hold about 150-300ml of fluid that should be a red color. If you put some on your hand it is very slippery.

The other reservoirs will hold water for the windscreen washer, and one connected to the radiator to hold coolant.

Check that the reservoir you intend to put the power steering fliud in is not connected to the radiator and does not contain water.

Take the cap off to check.

If you can't see in to the bottom, roll up some kitchen paper towel and feed that in until you get some fluid on it - red, you hope!

There will be marks (horizontal lines) on the side of the reservoir showing "Min" (minimum) and "Max" (maximum or full). Slowly pour in replavcement fliud until the tiop of the fluid is between the marks.. Put the cap back on, close the engine hood, drive for a short distance (2 km?) and check the levels again.

Top up the reservoir to just under "Max". Replace the cap.

Check the level after a short period of normal driving - a couple of weeks, If it is still going down a mechanic needs to check the power steering seals.

good luck.

Under the hood, where do you put in the steering fluid and the brake fluid on a 1996 rav4


The brake fluid is located at the drivers side of the firewall, down from the windshield wiper, on the steering column side. The power steering fluid reservoir is located on the engine where the belts or belt is, that turns all the components.

Windshield washer isn't pushing out any fluid


Had that happen to me before. Simply raise the hood and locate the plastic or rubber tube running to out put nozzle on hood. Disconnect and see if fluid shoots out. If it shoots out, simple take a needle of safety pin and clean out the nozzles located on the hood and should work. To clean the nozzle, you will have to lower the hood. If you want to you can do that before raising the hood. Oh by the way I assume you have verified that the reservoir is full.

Hi, We have a 2004 saturn ion and we need to cahnge the windshield washer transmission and can't figur out how to remove the wipers, without bending the arm. Is there a easy way to do it?


The wiper "motor" is usually located at the bottom of the fluid reservoir. Remove the fluid bottle under the hood and at the lower end of it you will find the motor. Once in a while it is located on the wall of the car under the hood - follow your fluid tubes to find and replace.

On my 2000 Blazer you just had to Fill the Tank under the Hood. Had a Line that ran to the Rear Wiper From There.
