Question about 1980 Chevrolet Corvette
I need to add power stering fluid, and dont want to take it in. where is the resivor? I have a 1980 corvette
The power steering pump on a 1980 corvette is located directly under the alternator. I have found it easiest to reach between the alternator belt and unscrew the cap, then use a long stemmed funnel to fill it. If you shine a flashlight down into the spout, you'l avopid overfilling.

Yes, this is a problem. The clear power steering fluid is a mineral oil base and the red Lucas additive is petroleum base. Your car uses the red petroleum base, which is actually Dexron ATF (automatic transmission fluid). Lucas is great stuff, the person at the parts store just doesn't know their stuff. You need to flush the system to save your pump from going out very prematurely.
