It is a black cylinder with a fluted cap if it is not just behind the fan check your fenders near the strut towers it will have a dipstick attached to the inside of the lid do not open the cylinder with the large 36mm bolt on top as this is your oil filter.

Where do I add power steering fluid in?


There is always a screw on cap somewhere on the engine, or on the side of the engine compartment. The cap will have a dipstick leveler attached. You may need to consult an owners manual for the exact location, or head to an auto parts store...they will almost always be knowledgable enough to help you fill your fluids.

Where is the power steering


Some newer cars don't have Hydraulic power steering. They use an electric motor power assist. Check your owners manual.

Lost powering steering, battery light on, check engine temp on


Your vehicle is overheating. You need to check and see if there is any coolant left. If your heater hasn't been working that means you are low on coolant which in turn makes your engine over heat. Look at your owners manual and it will tell you which type of antifreeze you need and how much water and what not.

Where to put the oil?


Engine, trans, or power steering ?
Your owners manual would have a diagram showing the fill points.

Where is my power steering pump located? (3100 v6 engine)


It is right on top of the front center of the engine. (Right side of car) It has a cap on top that is marked "POWER STEERING"
If you look in the owner's Manual on page 6-10 there is a picture of the engine compartment with arrows to show you where it is. It is marked by arrow "E".

I have a Mitsubishi colt 2006, today when I was reversing from a car park the wheel was (is) very heavy and hard to turn I also notice the ESP light is on. I thought it might be the power steering fluid...


The power steering pump is usually a black box with a round bottom. The fill cap on top of the pump is about the same size as the oil fill cap, but it has a dipstick mounted on the inside. It is driven by a belt, so it will be on the passenger side of the engine. It is often mounted lower on the engine.

I'd like to give you the page reference in the owner's manual, but the Mitsubishi website only provides manuals to owners (you sign up on the website to get access).

If the power steering pump is driven by a separate belt, check the belt tension.

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.

Lost owner manual for 92 Buick Regal custom-power steering fluid


The reservoir should be located under the hood on the passenger side, above serpentine belt. Guide your eyes backwards towards the mid section of the engine on the passenger side. the small reservoir will have a small turn cap on top. (passenger side off vehicle)
