There is a small master cylinder (similar to where you put brake fluid) you add fluid just as you would your brakes.

Power steering stiff on astra van 1.7 2008


I believe the power steering on your Astra van is an electrically operated hydraulic unit with a large fluid reservoir virtually on top of the steering gear?
If you have topped up the fluid enough for it to show on the little dipstick under the cap and the steering is stiffer towards one lock I would suspect a damaged steering gear but if the stiffness is uniform along the entire travel of the steering gear then the cause is probably low or non-existent hydraulic pressure.

The pumps do fail and need replacing sometimes and it isn't an easy job to do. I have not known one to stop suddenly because of pump or motor failure (but I have from electrical supply problems) and the only one I have needed to replace was very noisy. Usually the pump can't be heard above the noise of the engine.

With the aid of a wiring diagram and some small jumper leads the wiring can be disconnected from the pump and battery current supplied directly to the pump for the purpose of testing with out running the engine. If the pump can then be heard running and the steering is no longer stiff the problem is a fuse/wiring/electrical control type trouble and further investigation will be needed.

If the pump can't be heard running or the steering feels no better then the pump unit is probably faulty.

It would probably be wise to check the fuse first.
Good luck!

How do i top up hydraulic fluid in 2002 HOLDERN ASTRA SOFT TOP


If you are refering to a hydraulic clutch, there is a master cylinder similar to where you put brake fluid. you top it off the same as you would your brakes.

Holdern astra soft top stopped closing 2 inches from the end. Closed it manual. No obvious problems, just beeping when button is pushed. CAN I OPEN THE ROOF MANUALLY?


If you can close it manually with no obvious problems then opening it manually if there is no effort required should be ok. I would be checking the limiting position switch adjustment as that is what would be preventing from it closing all the way up

WHAT IS THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL


This Brake fluid level is a reservior of brake fluid near the hydraulic master cyclinder it will indicate the level it should be at on the side of the reservior or on the dip stick attached to the cap of the reservior. if it keeps running out after you top it up with hydraulic brake fluid you have a leak in your braking system and need to get your brake system checked out.before you find out you can't stop the car.!!

2004 holdern rodeo v6 clutch went to the floor was working all good before


The problem could come from the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder. The cause could be external or internal.

First check the fluid level in the reservoir. The reservoir could be independent of the brake system or using the same.

If the level is too low, air may have entered in the line and the hydraulic compression is affected. So first, adjust the level in the reservoir using recommended oil. (normally brake oil is ok).

Check for any oil leak starting from the clutch pedal following hydraulic circuit up to the transmission.
Your vehicule should have two clutch cylinders: the master and the slave.
The master cylinder is operated by your clutch pedal, it's located under the dash, fixed to the firewall and connected to the hydraulic line on the other side of the firewall. Check for any leak on the carpet, under the carpet and near the hydraulic connection. Pumping the pedal making that verification could help to detect leak. Then follow the hydraulic line going to the slave cylinder attached to the transmission making a visual inspection for leaks.
If for any reason some air entered the circuit, the line could be purged from air bleeding the slave cyclinder as you do bleeding brake component.
If there is no air, no leak detected then it's probably an internal problem that you can't see. Remove the cap from the reservoir, depress the pedal. If the oil is moving in the reservoir then the master slave is probably bad otherwise I would suspect the slave.
I'm not an Isuzu technician.
Some other Gurus could complement or correct my saying.
Hope it will help

Leaking brake fluid now my clutch not working !!! help


Are you sure it was brake fluid leaking? If you were leaking transmission fluid then that could cause some of the mechanical workings to stall, in turn causing the clutch to freeze-up. The other (more likely) problem is that you were leaking hydraulic fluid for the hydraulic clutch.

It sounds like you will probably have a hydraulic clutch, and fluid was leaking. If you accidentally topped-up the hydraulic fluid for the clutch with brake fluid, that would be an interesting scenario... not sure how the mis-match would work out. If the hydraulic clutch fluid is simply low, you can flush it out, put new fluid in there and get it to a dealer to repair the clutch

Fluid check


The 2002 thru 2007 do not have the traditional hydraulic power stering unit that requires fluid. In these models, power assist is provided by an electrical power steering unit. Nothing to check there but the battery.
