The alternator is under the hood, toward the rear of the engine on the passenger side.Directly under it is the resivor. Check the fluid when cold so you don't burn yourself. Good Luck

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.

    Where is power steering pump?


    The power steering reservoir is on the passenger's side near the engine wall. You will need a flash light follow the drive belt down past the alternator to the power steering pump.

    Look for a black lid with a yellow steering wheel on top!
    The engineers spent many sleepless night hiding it from view.

    Where do I put power steering fluid


    Hello! The power steering fluid reservoir is located behind the alternator on the left hand side of (as your facing) the engine. Here is a picture to help you locate it - the arrow is pointing at the cap to the reservoir.

    CAN NOT FIND POWER STEERING FLUID ADD FLUIDS


    The power steering fluid reservoir is behind and below the alternator in the rear of the engine bay. Its very hard to get to and see without a flashlight. A piece of hose or tubing is necessary to add fluid to the reservoir from above.

    I need to put some power steering fluid in my car but i cant find the reservoir


    The reservoir is in with the power steering pump. You can find the power steering pump along the serpentine belt and remember to check the level while the engine is running. On the power steering cap there is a built in dip stick with makings, just make sure you don't over fill. Good luck and hope this helps. I think on the 3.1 and 3.4 the power steering pump is at the top just to the right od the alternator

    Location of power steering reservoir


    This pump sits down below tha alternator. If it does not have a remote resevoir than the resevoir sits on top of the pump. It is a pain to get to.
