The easiest way for this is to get a Turkey Baster and **** it out.

I can't figure out where to put power steering fluid in my 2004 chevrolet malibu

the 2004 malibu does not have a place to put transmission fluid it has a electric power steering system and does not use fluid, if you are having a problem with the power steering light chimming and lighting up this is under a recall that chevy has obligated to fix. So if your car is doing this take it to your local chevy dealership and have them to repair it for you. Hope this helps.

Theres a growling noise coming from my power steering

The pump is low on fluid . If fluid level is a-ok check for foam and bubbles in the resvoir. If there is foam and bubbles drain and bleed the resvoir according to spec's. If after all this the pump still growles you may have a bad bearing but before you condem the pump, few more checks you can do. Before I go there lets see how you make out with the foaming and bleeding. Good luck

Poured oil into power steering for 66 mustang. It normally uses F type transmission oil. Do I need to drain it? Will it damage power steering

Thankfully it wouldn't damage anything. However it is a messy job to drain the fluid back out. Either a shop can do it for you, or you can simply remove the return line and place it into a bucket. Turn it by hand to get most of the fluids out. Replace with cheap Type F, since you'll probably have to do it a few times to completely replace the fluid. Make sure its all red (Type F) or clear (Powersteering fluid). Good Luck

Power steering - 1999 chevy silverado

You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.
