Adding power steering fluid to a 1999 Buick Regal

The power steering fluid reservoir is located on the passenger side front of the engine, it is roughly square and black plastic with a twist off cap, check level hot and add so fluid is within two lines on the plastic dip stick which is part of the cap of the reservoir.

Adding power steering fluid

Locating the Power Steering reservoir and adding PS fluid. 1999 Pontiac GP

  • The reservoir is clearly visible in the engine bay on the 3.1 litre engine cars.
  • For the 3.8 Ltr engine cars, use a flashlight to look down past the alternator for a black cap with a steering wheel printed on it to indicate the power steering fluid reservoir. ( passenger side of the vehicle).
  • Remove the cap of the power steering reservoir, clean the dipstick, re-insert and remove again to check the fluid level. If the level is at or below the low level mark, add fluid slowly, taking care not to fill above the MAXIMUM mark. It's best to add small amounts and re-check the level as you go to ensure you do not overfill the reservoir above the MAX level.
  • ONLY use the power steering fluid recommended for that vehicle by GM.

    I need to add brake fluid to the master cyclinder

    Open the hood. Look on the drivers side. Find the Battery. Now as you are facing the vehicle go just to the left and a bit farther in than the battery. There is a yellow cap with the Brake symbol on it. That is the reservoir for the Master Brake cylinder. All the check and fill points have a yellow caps. ie transmission oil, eng oil, rad coolent, brake fluid, and power steering fluid.
