Not really sure what your asking. But if your leaking from the power steering unit but it looks like tranny fluid it's because it is tranny fluid. Power steer fluid and tranny fluid are the same except that tranny fluid has a red dye in it.

2002 Chevy Malibu with a 3.1ltr enging and a 4 speed automatic trans. The trans has a whinning sound when driving. It's not slipping and shifts correctly. It just has a whinning sound. What could the...


The most common whining noise from that tranny is the transmission pump. Sometimes they have a high pitch whine noise yet nothing wrong its normal. Sometimes its an indication of the pump being over-worked due to a dirty filter or fluid low. Turn engine on and check tranny fluid level. If low add to cold mark on dipstick, check for leaks under vehicle. If fluid appears very black or burnt smell, recommend flushing fluid and replacing filter (located inside tranny pan) yours will be a 4L60E type tranny.

Where do i put in transmission and power sterring fluids?


You put tranny fluid in the place you take out tranny stick to check tranny fluid level. You need a funnel. The power steering is the same. take off the cap and it has lines to tell you if it needs fluid. Add power steering fluid there.

A person told me I could use transmission fluid for power steering fluid ??? dis be true?


back in the day, possibly, nowadays, no. ATF is 'slippery' and PS fluid is more like hydrolic fluid than anything else

I have a mazda mpv 2000 and something red colour is leaking from it. is anyone knows what it is and what should be done to fix the problem?


I didn't realize that that red fluid was coming from my 2000 MPV until the transmission burnt out in the middle of a four hour drive. I highly recommend checking the fluid level (top it up if it's low) and getting it to a mechanic. You may save yourself a couple thousand. My leak was at the front of the car, driver's side. Just a tiny little hole in dull silver tube...

I have a 200 Pontiac Sunfire when I put the car in gear it takes it a little bit of time to actually go into gear. I have seen that there is some fluid leaking out. What do I do?


I am thinking that you have an automatic transmission so if the fluid that os leaking is pinkish in color, your shifting problem is from low tranny fluid. You must fix the leak first and then top up your tranny fluid. That should probably fix your shifting problem

Power steering pump


This removal is rather involved: use a turkey baster to suction out PS fluid,disconnect neg battery cable, remove serpentine belt, raise vehicle, support on jack stands, disconnect Oxygen sensor wiring harness from vehicle wiring harness, (access to this connection is thru the wiring harness grommet in the floor of the vehicle) remove catalytic converter from the exhaust manifold, remove exhaust system hangers/isolators from the bracket on the exhaust system, move the exhaust system as far as possible to the rear and left side of the vehicle, remove accessory drive splash shield, detach the ps supply hose coming from the fluid reservoir, from the fitting on the ps pump, plug the hose to prevent fluid leaking all over, remove ps pressure line from pump, plug this line also, remove ps return hose, plug line, remove nut attaching pump (@ rear of pump) to mounting bracket, loosen 3 bolts at front ps bracket, remove pump and bracket as an assembly, now remove 3 bolts and separate, reverse to install. Yes, it's a b-itch. good luck, countrycurt0
