Question about 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier
1995 Chevy Cavalier with what I believe to be a 2.2L 4 cyl. I lost power steering this morning. Stopped to check fluid level (which was low) and added some. The motor was making a 'sucking' sound which was traced back to the Power Steering Cap. A look at the ground, there is all of the fluid I added. Has anyone out there taken on replacing one of these? If so, where are the best resources to locate and use. Weekend job? ... or pay the mechanic? Thanx

It sounds as though you blew a power steering hose. The fluid is going out as fast as you pour it in. If you are comfortable doing this type of work you can probably do it yourself. However, if you are not comfortable doing a hose replacement, then by all means have a mechanic perform the work. It is a pretty tight, confined space to work in and you should use flare nut wrenchs. After you rerplace the hose, refill the steering resivoir, start the engine and then turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and then all the way to the right. This will purge the air out of the system.
Hope this helps and please rate me highly.
