GM wanted to see how many tatoos they could cause. It's located on the passenger side close to the firewall. There are two heater hoses just above it so be careful if checking the level when hot. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: need to locate power steering pump for 1996 buick

The power steering reservoir will be on the left side (near the passenger front wheel) behind the coolant reservoir. It's a black tank with orange lettering on the cap. If you follow the hoses off of it, they'll lead you directly to the pump.

Steering wheel was hard to turn while the engine start...


Most modern cars use power assisted steering. When the engine starts it also runs a power steering pump that builds hydraulic pressure for the system. If the engine has not started there is no pressure in the steering system and the steering feels very heavy.
See this video that explains how power steering works.

Most filters for power steering are located in the resevoir. Check there first.. Remove the resevoir cap and see if the is a nut that you can un screw. or check to see if you can remove the cover of the resevoir. Make you sure are using the correct oil in the steering system or you will have problems.

Is there any service done on the power steering on the last few days?
Example: replacing high and low pressure hose(s).Leaking power steering rack?
Please place a cardboard on the ground (under the path of all steering components to inspect for leak(s).
It can be multiple spots.Inspect both tie rods for smooth end to end turning operation.(two persons task)
Check power steering for lock up or belt hopping condition.
THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT STEPS! Mis-diagnosis can cause you $1200 or more.
The most like trouble location (about to leak or burst) is the high pressure hose after the PS pump or between the PS fluid tank.
Check for deform hoses.
The "hard to turn" condition is cause by air pocket / air bubble inside the steering rack.
Worst case is metal fragment inside the rack.
If your 2001 steering is stock and has over ~160,000 miles then you should save up money for a rack + hoses + pump + belt replacement.

Where is the power steering fluid cap located in a pontiac g6 3500 v6?


On the 3.5 V6 the power steering in located on the front corner of the engine passenger side. You'll see the serpentine belt go around the power steering pump and there should be a cop on top of the pump with a picture of the steering wheel. It may be hidden by the cold intake tube from the air cleaner box. Good luck and keep me posted if you need more help locating it, I'll try to explain better. Always easier to show then tell LOL.

Audi power steering pump location


Before you replace the pump, check the filter located inside the oil tank. This filter cleans the oil before going to pump. REMEMBER that Audi uses a special oil!!! Not your normal power steering fluid! Mixing them could cause damage to the entire system!
