Fluid in where? I am taking a guess here, since all fluids are fairly easy to find where to pour in, that you are looking for transmission fluid? Some newer vehicles have a sealed transmission with no dip stick. Ford f150 for example.

How do I find the steering fluid resevoir in a 2011 Ford Fusion?

It is going to be a white bottle looking device with a clear level indicator and black top. The screw off lid will most likely say power steering fluid on it. The other way is to look in your manual for engine compartment details.

Overfill transmission fluid in daewoo lanos...its now hard to get the high gears...what do I do now to solve the problem?

There is fluid level plug at front of motor under the oil cooler lines(11mm bolt accsessed from under car) Im not sure the proper way to check but ive read from other people info supposedly from the manual that at operating temp, car level on stands while running, remove plug if no oil add ,if too mutch let it out till it stops? Ive got same car/motor/ gear box and have just changed auto sump gasket/filter/radiator and am trying to find correct procedure as well. I figured there would be some still in tourque converter so i added about 8 litres(bloke at auto shop looked in manual takes 11.5 litres totally empty), wamed up, loosened plug and at least half srpayed/dribbled out (it blasted out when totally removed) so ive stoped at that and not sure if the right way to be checking with it running as it seems to be pumping out. let me know how you go. They stupid for not making it with a dipstick.

What type of brake fluid goes in a 2000 chevrolet silverado

The filler cap and manual both specify DOT 3--"Delco Supreme 11" or equivalent.
Lets look at what the DOT ratings mean. The table below shows the MINIMUM wet and dry boiling points for DOT 2, 3, 4, and 5 brake fluid in degrees fahrenheit.
Dry Boiling point 374 401 446 500
Wet boiling point 284 311 356

The DOT 2 spec is for drum brakes and is obsolete. If you have any DOT 2 in your garage, throw it away!
DOT 5 is for silicone brake fluid. Silicone brake fluid (DOT 5) should be avoided because it is not compatible with regular brake fluid, it is hard to pour without introducing bubbles and thus results in soft pedal feel, and moisture still gets into your system and will pool in low areas like your calipers and encourage rapid corrosion. STAY AWAY!
That leaves DOT 3 and DOT 4 fluids. These fluids are compatible with each other and may be interchanged or mixed with no ill effects.
I haven't had any problems at that time adding Prestone DOT 4 to the original GM fluid.
Changing BRAKE FLUID is a MUST. Most dealers recomend at 60K scheduled maintenance service.
The industry standard is every 3 to 4 years for DOT 3 and every 2 years for DOT 4 under normal driving conditions.

My power steering resevoir was empty. I noticed it because my steering was suddenly stiff this morning. Nothing in my manual said anything about a particular type of PS fluid so I went to Walmart and...

You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.

Brakes not working properly when you press the brake pedal becomes hard and pushes against pressure

Sounds like the booster. It is located on the drivers side firewall and has the brake fluid resevoir attached to it. Make sure your resevoir has fluid in it as this can affect braking, but not vacuum boost. Look for a vacuum leak, as the booster works on manifold vacuum. If this is not the issue, you may need to replace the booster, but the most common cause of this is loss of vacuum. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Audi 100 1993, ok but how do i put the tranni fluid back in, i cant find were to put it, and the owners manual says i need to take it in to have a professional do it, this car is different from any other...

If you can't find a dipstick then you probably have to put the fluid back directly into the tranny pan.  There should be a second plug that sits higher up that you take out and then get some sort of pump or tube so you can fill it back up.  I just did this with my Trooper tonight.  Takes a while to get the fluid back in but once it starts dripping back out the fill hole a little you are good to plug it back up.  Thank you for an honest ranking and for using FixYa!

Orange fluid leak (most likely power steering fluid)

Check your hoses around your power steering resevoir, you might have a pin hole leake in one of the hoses. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level. As long as you keep fluid in it you won't burn out the pump.

1987 Chevy G20 van. How do I put power steering fluid in it?

The resevoir should be on the power steering pump
If you are good on fluid then maybe you need to check for excessive play in the steering box itself, check idler arm, and tie rod ends.

2005 jetta no power steering hard to steer

First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.
