If your car is equipped with power steering , then there will be a reservoir to check the level. I have not seen a pontiac car without power steering in a long time . The reservior will be on the front of the engine, left side , standing at the front of the car. I should be a black or yellow cap and the dipstick is connected to the cap. The owners manual will show you where it is as well. The reservoir might be located on the left inner fender as well. depending on engine in the car.

Yes u have a power steering pump that is engine driven and uses PS fluid, the fluid reservoir is black plastic, it will be on the engine most likely on the passenger side.

Where do i put power steering fluid on a 2007 pontiac grand prix


Follow the serpentine belt on the front of the engine. One of the accessories powered by the belt will be the power steering pump, It will have a twist off cap with a dipstick or a sight window to show the power steering fluid level. Don't overfill the reservoir.

My 1997 pontiac Grand prix power sterring is gone and hard to turn i think it might be the pump or sterring whell fluid but cant find it help me please


You might want to check the power steering fluid. The resevoir is on the passenger side toward the passenger seat it is kind of hard to find. But i have a '97 Grand Prix and i noticed that whenever i would turn sharp while going pretty fast it would make a grinding noise and i could feel my steering wheel pulling me. But the thing is the power steering never whinned or anything. So i checked it and there was absolutely none in there. So check the fluids first.

Please check the fluid level in the power steering pump. After putting on a new hose the fluid may have traveled through the system and you may need more fluid.

1997 pontiac grand prix gtp power steering


I had this exact car and I had all the same problems your talking about, The pump although I can't tell you for sure is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it. If it is whining it is because it is low on fluid, also when topping it off fill it to the full mark while it is running. If it is foamy turn the steering wheel all the way left and all the right a few time to help get rid of the air. You may have to let it sit a while to let the bubble escape, check and do this again, it could be a bad pump also. The overheating problem I had with mine was a bad temp sensor for the computer. It has two temp guages and the computer uses on to activate the fan as needed. I also had another problem with mine, on the front of the intake is a small plastic elbow for a heater hose and this goes bad. Had to replace mine. Wasn't hard, and the part was cheap. Hope this helps you!
