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.

    Steering fluid liquid is leaking on the alternator. how do you clean it


    Address the leak, power steering fluid is flammable and you may have a engine fire if the fluid run's in to something hot enough to flash the fluid to ignite. You can spray brake parts cleaner to clean the area before you start the repair. Good luck and hope this helps, note there will be lots of mess under the car.

    Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


    Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

    Steering gone heavy


    Sounds like the belt that drives your steering pump is the same belt that drives your alternator, eh? Are you sure you don't have a loose, slipping, or broken steering/alternator belt? I assume you have looked under the hood, and that the engine did not die.
    Check the steering fluid level, as mentioned above, and inspect the belts. Steering pumps need their fluid, BUT I Can't imagine why a low steering fluid level would cause the warning lights to come on unless a belt is at fault or the engine died. Belt could still be in place, but just sliding across the crucial pulleys. So watch it run and note if all the pulleys are turning or not. I'm betting the belt broke, slipped, or an accessory pulley locked up. Namely: steering pump or alternator.

    Report back if this is not the problem please. Hope this helps. Tater Todd
