That reservoir is the power steering pump itself. You'll see the power steering pump, driven by the belt that runs the fan, and it has a pully driven by the belt and there is a twist cap on top of this tank. That's where you put in power steering fluid.Just remove that cap and fill it with fluid.

The steering is getting really hard to steer..

first pop ur hood
then look towards the back of the motor of your car
u will see a big cylinder shaped booster with a resivoir coming out of it.
this is your brake booster and master cylinder these fluid levels mean nothing as far as your problem is concerned.
keep looking and you will find another small resivoir with a cap on it.
this is your power steering fluid.
take the cap off and check to see how full it is.
you most likely have a leak in either a power steering line or your power steering pump is faulty and leaking. this will cause hard steering if youre fluid levels are insufficient.
hope this helps you with your problem.

Where is the power steering fluid in a 2005 buick rendezvous

Depending on which pump they used ,if it is the pumpwith resivoir it would be on the belt side in the front .The cap will be a plain black cap.If it is the pump with an external resivoir it would be either on the firewall or mounted on the fender .It should have a black cap with power steering or power steering fluid written on it.I hope that helps a little bit.

Power steering reservoir has a bad leak. How do I

I think but please dont quote me on this, there is a easy fix for the resivoir leaking from between the pump and the resivoir. you can remove the powersteering by removing the serpentine belt and then turn the pully to line up the 3 bolt that secure the p/s pump. removed the resivoir by removing the clips, replace the seal ("O") ring for the resivoir and reassemble, reinstall and then retest, Hope this helps

Location of the brake fluid input

the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

Where do I add power steering fluid on a 2002 grand prix?

power steering resivoir should be located just behind the serpentine belt. it will have a black cap and should say steering fluid. if your car is a 6 cyliner it should be on the right side. you should be able to see the cap.

My power steering oil is leaking

First you need to find the sorce of the leak, be it in a hose or in the resivoir. I personally use Lucas power steering sealer available at most parts stores, and Walmarts I believe. Follow the instructions on the bottle, but it has cured numerous power steering leaks for me.
