The 2010 v6 has a power steering dip stick below the engine cover. Take off the oil cap, grab the plastic engine cover on each side and lift it off (it snaps off and on). Put the oil cap back on so you don\'t lose it. You will see the power steering dipstick at the top of the engine. This only applies to the v6. Mine was loud, and I added a bit of fluid and it was fine.

SOURCE: adding power steering fluid

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

SOURCE: where do you add power steering fluid?

The HHR does not use power steering fluid. The power steering is strictly an electric motor attached to the steering column under the dash. If you are having problems, you may need to have the motor replaced.

However, before you do, check the following fuses:

Underhood fuse #1 - 60A
Inside console fuse #19 - 2A

Either with kill the steering and may have been blown if you (or an uninformed mechanic) have jumped the car incorrectly.

What does it mean when my 2010 camaro has no power steering


2010 Camaro Power Steering Failure

It means the power steering pump is no longer operating and so providing the required power assistance.
You either have a power steering fluid leak in the system and much of the fluid has been lost or the power steering pump itself has failed. You should not try and drive the car when you have this problem because the steering will be far too heavy to drive safely and because if a fluid leak has run the pump nearly dry you will cause damage to the PS pump.

The first thing to do is check the power steering fluid reservoir in the engine compartment. If it is low or empty you have a leak in the system. You can refill the system with new fluid but it will continue to leak until the leak is addressed and you will have to constantly add new PS fluid. In the case of a major leak the car will not be driveable as the PS fluid will be lost very rapidly. Without fluid you will quickly ruin the pump and you will also have no power assistance in your steering.

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...


2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.
