Black power steering fluid


Power steering fluid has not been changed in eons, i suggest draining the fluid, refilling with a cheap fresh fluid, then bleed the system by turning the wheels from lock to lock a few times with the cap of the steering fluid master cylinder off, then drain the system again & refill with good quality power steering fluid - it should be pink & smell sweet, - the power steering fluid that is!!

Entourage power steering freezing up


I suggest flushing the system first, could simply be build up from leaving the cap loose, or whatnot. Refill it with a conditioning fluid, like Lucas power steering fluid. Let us know if further diagnosis is needed

This is the steering rack. If it's not leaking fluid out of the bellows more than likely the fluid needs to be changed.
This can be done by removing the 2 lines from the pump that attach to the rack draining the fluid, then reconnect the lines and refill with fresh power steering fluid.
When draining make sure to take the cap/dipstick off of the pump.

I need to top up the power stering fluid and need to know what tipe to use 1988 chevy silverado C3500 454 The power steering looks like it is incorperated into the brake booster


power steering is at the front of the engine and runs on the belt. The reservoir cap looks like this:

The reservoir in front of the brake booster is the brake master cylinder reservoir. To refill, use standard brake fluid. If it the truck is using brake fluid, check for leaks at the back of the master cylinder and at all wheels.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

My wheel is almost impossible to turn. It started with just getting tight and every 2- 3 days I would have to refill the power steering fluid. I'm almost positive it was leaking from somewhere. But today I...


You first need to find where the fluid is leaking from.. Then you need to check the pump as running the pump with insufficient fluid will cause damage. Most likely, the fluid is leaking from the pressure hose, somewhere between the pump and the rack although the rack could also be leaking. Look around for a buildup of moisture or wet mud and dirt. Have a look under the car for oil dripping when you have the engine running and someone turning the steering. It may be that the rack and the pump have failed due to lack of fluid..

I don't know what power steering fluid to put in my jetta 2001 td


It is quite possible that the resevor is out of fluid. If this is so, it is very bad for your power steering pump. If it still makes noise after you refill the steering fluid, then you will have to rebuild or replace the power steering pump.

The steering makes a screechy noise when steering.


If fluid was refilled, how is the level now? If it's low again, it may be the problem. If it has a leak somewhere, fluid could possibly leak on the belts that drive the power steering system, causing the squeal or screech. So check the fluid level again, if it's down, top it off, and have the leak fixed. Let me know what you find, and if u need more help. Curt

First, I'd try refilling the fluid. You can't use fluid off the shelf - Audi uses proprietary power steering fluid, available at dealerships (probably a VW dealer can give you the same thing) or online at www.germanautoparts.com or www.ecstuning.com. Try refilling it. The power steering fluid is cooled by a cooler behind the lower part of the bumper, and the fluid itself cools the power steering pump. If you're low on fluid, the pump may be heating up and in turn, heating the fluid. Fill it to the proper level and keep an eye on it for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
