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

Look for the power steering pump when you see it follow the hose to the reservoir it should be located some where on the front right or left side look for a cap.

What is the atf oil bottle at the side of the air filter for


Do you mean that there is a plastic bottle of ATF sitting loose under your hood? Or are you asking what the black reservoir with a knurled cap that is full of ATF is for?
If you are asking about the reservoir that is part of the car, it is the power steering fluid. Car parts stores will try to sell you fluid in bottles that say Power Steering Fluid, but your car uses Dextron ATF which is the same thing only it is cheaper when you buy ATF by the quart rather than PS Fluid by the pint.
If you have a bottle of ATF, someone probably put it there so it would be handy when they needed to top off the power steering reservoir. Topping off the power steering reservoir is a routine exercise on many BMWs because their power steering hoses tend to leak.

The oil in my power steering is black how do I change it


First thing you need to do is remove thwe return line from your power steering reservoir. Thats the thing you put the power steering fluid in. Run that hose to a large container where you can catch a lot of fluid in. Now you want to make sure you have your new power steering fluid on hand before you start and another person would be very helpful also. Have your helper start the car and turn the wheel back and forth while you pour power steering fluid in the reservoir. Do not let your power steering fluid run completely out you can ruin your pump and or steering box. Continue to pour in new steering fluid until the fluid coming out of the hose thats in the bucket is clean fluid. Turn vehicle off reconect the hose to the reservoir and top off. With the lid off reservoir start the vehicle back up and turn wheel all the way back and forth many times(do not turn it to its furthest position where it bumps) continue to make sure the fluid level is always full. By turning the wheel back and forth you are bleeding the lines to get all the air out. Do that a few times, refill and put the cap back on. You just changed your power steering fluid. I f your vehicle is old you may want to get new rubber hoses for your power steering system. hoses degrade over time and eventually they start to flake off into your fluid which can damage parts. Always a good idea to replace hoses especially if they are soft.
