Visually follow any belt you see and look for a smallish device, normally located fairly high on the engine with a small tank with removable cover.

How to change the fluid of the power steering ?


Open the engine hood.

There will be several fluid reservoirs under the bonnet. If the car / truck has power steering, one of them will hold about 150-300ml of fluid that should be a red color. If you put some on your hand it is very slippery.

The other reservoirs will hold water for the windscreen washer, and one connected to the radiator to hold coolant.

Check that the reservoir you intend to put the power steering fliud in is not connected to the radiator and does not contain water.

Take the cap off to check.

If you can't see in to the bottom, roll up some kitchen paper towel and feed that in until you get some fluid on it - red, you hope!

There will be marks (horizontal lines) on the side of the reservoir showing "Min" (minimum) and "Max" (maximum or full). Slowly pour in replavcement fliud until the tiop of the fluid is between the marks.. Put the cap back on, close the engine hood, drive for a short distance (2 km?) and check the levels again.

Top up the reservoir to just under "Max". Replace the cap.

Check the level after a short period of normal driving - a couple of weeks, If it is still going down a mechanic needs to check the power steering seals.

good luck.

Were do I find the power steering cap an transmission fluid cap..


under your hood you will see three fluid reservoirs only two of wich will have twist caps. one is for water and the other is for power steering... the smaller one will be your power steering reservoir. as for the transmission fluid it is to be poured directly into the transmission. there will be a cap or bolt on the top that will need to be removed, after that you will need a long set funnel to reach it. good luck.

I was trying to check the power steering fluid level in my 2005 chevy equinox but do not see where to check it, can you help me?


Your Equinox has Electric Power Steering or EPS for short and doesn't have a pump or fluid so that's why you're having trouble locating it. It uses electrical power, motors, and sensors to supply power assist when you are steering. Haven't seen any problems with them yet and they seem to work pretty well. One less thing to check under the hood which isn't all bad!

Where is the power steering fluid added? I can't find the cap under the hood.


It should be located on the drive belt end of the engine with a steering wheell picture on the cap or it reads power steering fluid on top.Check and clean all caps it may just be dirty making it unable to read it.On some of those cars they put it down low in the engine compartment depending where they located the pump.

Cant find the power steering pump on my 2006 pontiac g6 3.5l its not under the altenator


you most likely have ELECTRIC power steering not HYDRAULIC
when you open the hood the engine cover will have the engine oil cap and the power steering cap showing if you only have the engine oil cap showing then you have ELECTRIC power steering

It is hard to turn as if the power steering is low for the 1999 pntiac bonneville SE and I need to know where the power steering is so i can check the power steering level


If you look under the hood look where the belts are. A compotent that the belts drive or turn is your power steering pump, when you find it you will see a cap that you can remove and check your fluid. Also with the problem you describe check the belt and the tension of the belt. Fluid level and belt tension are the most common causes of power steering failure. The power steering cap will be marked to make it easier to find.

Power steering fluid


the power steering resivoir is located onto of the power steering pump, which has a pully driven by the belt(s). the resivoir is small with a cap the unscrews and a mini dipstick attached to the inside of the cap.
