You do not add any. If the steering system is leaking,you repair the problem. It is a sealed system other than a removable fill cap. It does not use fluid in the sense you ever loose any

Changed power steering pump for lexus 1999 gs400 and it still doesnt work with the power steering I did purchase a used oem rack and pinion as well had the used parts both installed and it still is not...


you need to bleed the rack. you can try to turn the steering wheel to the left and hold for 5 sec and then to the right and hold, continue this a few times check fluid and repeat. you can also try to loosen line on rack and turn wheel to bleed air out then tighten before turning wheel again.

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 have a 1991 ls400. The power steering is atrocious. I continually have to add atf fluid or stop leak into the power steering chamber. I assume it's a leak--a very small one. Any ideas on what stop...


    Check out the 2 lines that run from your power steering pump. With the engine running try moving them, and look for fluid leaking around the end of the hoses, you will probally find one of them leaking at the fitting. Of course be careful with the engine running, do not have any rags or anything in your hands around a running engine.
