You should add it to the power steering pump reservoir, which if you have the 3800 series II its behind the engine on the passenger side.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaks

if you take and pressure wash the motor capartment out at a car wash and then have a friend turn your steering wheel back and forth while you look ant the hoses you should see if the hoses have a small leak now never use your hand to check for a leak becuse the power steering systme is a hydralic system and if there is a pin hole and your hand is there the fluid can actually pierce the skin and rip off flesh but you should be able to see the leak just dont grab the hoses while the car is running.
hope this is usefull for you. and please rate my solutions
thank you

Grand am se 2001 is leaking fluid on passage r side of the hood


What type of fluid? Antifreeze should be readily indentifiable. As a matter of fact, so should motoroil , P/steering and transmission fluids.Brake fluid would be underneath the car at a wheel position or the left sidefirewall master cylinder location.. Sorry, It takes sight and smell to ID this fluid. Good luck, -Ned-
Ask a neigbor or mechanic to try to identify the fluid and possibly where it is coming from.

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has a power steering leak but seems to work well. my mechanic wants to replace the whole rack and pinion, but that seems extensive for a leak. any suggestions?


Anytime a power steering compononent is leaking it requires replacement. whether or not you choose to replace it is up to you. if you lose all power steering fluid you will lose your power assist however mechanical steering ability is still maintained.

What symptoms does a Dodge Caravan have when it needs steering fluid repair of some type?


Hi sandav,

In response to your question, fluid can be low and more may need to be added. Any repair would be on the way it got low, fix the leak.

If it is low, steering at slower speeds will be difficult. An upper body workout. .

If you are having difficulties, post the symptoms you are experiencing. Might be able to help

Steering issues


Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.

The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.
