Where is the power steering dip stick located on a 2002 Caravan?? Is the stem a certain color?? (it's for an old girl friend who lives out of state) :)


The dip stick is part of the cap on the top of the power steering pump. The cap and stick is usually colored black. When you remove the cap( it twists right off), pull the cap straight up and turn over. The stick is right there. Its about 3 or 4 inches long. It will be marked for the proper amount of power steering fluid you need, just like the oil dip stick. Hope this helps.

How and where do I add power steering fuild to a 1989 Brougham? Can't find the dip stick for the steering fuild and don;t kn ow when I should add the fuild. Can you help?


You add fluid at the P/S reservoir which is belt driven. There is a large cap on top. Remove the cap and there is a built in dip stick. Unless you have a leak you will never have to add fluid.

I cant find the stick to check power steering levels


If you mean the fluid level in the power steering container ,it's marked on the power steering fluid container under the hood (min - max). There's no stick like the engine oil measuring stick. Keep the level at 'max' and you'll have no problems.

Where is the power steering fluid dip stick on a 1988 XJ-S?


I am not familiar with this car. However, on most cars the power steering level is not determined by using a dipstick. On most cars, you open the power steering fluid reservoir and look at it to determine if the reservoir is full. I hope this helps.

99 Maxima Power steering sticking


I am a Nissan ceritifed Scope Technician with over 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership.

To me, it sounds like your problem is "morning sickness". The problem is there only after the vehicle sits for a period of a few hours (overnight) and then is gone once the vehicle warms up some.

What happens with "morning sickness" is this: there are nylon rings in the pinion section of the steering rack and pinion. Over time, these nylon rings wear grooves into the aluminum housing in which they reside. When the steering rack and pinion is cold, the pressurized power steering fluid can move past these rings causing difficulty in steering or an unsmooth steering condition. Once the fluid warms up some, the nylon rings expand and seal the gap and fluid can't get past anymore and it stays where it's supposed to be, leading to the normal steering you experience the rest of the day.

The only repair for this condition is to replace the power steering rack and pinion. A used one can be a gamble as this could reoccur in a short time. A brand new one is overly expensive. That leaves a good quality aftermarked remanufactured rack and pinion as your best option. And be sure to have the vehicle aligned when that work is completed.

Hope this helps!!!
