    For what? Oil dipstick, tranny fluid dipstick, p/s fluid is on the pump, brake fluid is on the top of master cylinder on drivers side. Get the owners manual out and read it.

Trans does not have a dip stick,will have to put on rack and check from underneath.That should have a 4t40 or 4t45e trans automatic.

Engine light on ...message says =engine power reduced.. and now temp is reading hot ,message says check engine temperature ...have had fluid levels checked , they said i had plenty of coolant.....could it...


im going thru the same issue right now, for 1 dont let the needle go more then 3/4 line , you can damage other parts, ive had radiator , water pump, thermostat, coolant level checked and fan replaced but still same ish, ive learned allot dealing with this car , 1 if ur ls starts running hot in traffic or on street , then ur fan isnt working properly, my fan used to work but was loud and was on all the time , fixed that issue , now as i described in traffic she starts to go hot , ur fan is a hydraulic fan which is powered by power steering fluid so since i have a new fan the only problem could be is that my power steering pump isnt working not sending fluid thru fan, 2 if it has to do with the heads i was told to get rid of car, not worth the cost , i hope this wil help a bit and hopefully it isnt the heads

Where to I put the power steering fluid? I can't


Hi, without looking at the engine in front of me, I can tell you to look for the belt that operates everything, and you will find the power steering pump. It will have a small pulley on it with the fan belt around that. It will also have a cap on the top of it. You remove the cap to pour the fluid in. On the body of the pump it will have 2 lines 1 for full cold and 1 for full hot. This means if the engine is hot from driving or cold from setting. Should be very easy to find if you follow what I have said. Good Luck,

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

I need to rplace tke power steering hose on a 2000 kia sephia


we tried fixing the old power steering hose, finally just had it taken off and another made up by an auto shop, cost $65 to have one made. very easy to fix, just undo at each end. this is a pressure hose though so make sure and get the same kind made.
