Remove radiator oveflow tank (2 nuts, lift out), look straight down below it you will see a cap. That is your power steering reservoir.

It is located on the lower back of the engine. You have to remove the radiator over flow tank, there is 2 bolts(10mil) on top of tank, then lift the tank up, make sure you leave the hose connected.once you have the tank out of the way, take a rag and wipe the dirt and oil off of the cap before you check the oil level.

I can't find the power steering reservoir on a 2004 chevrolet impala LS. Can you tell me where it is using the washer fluid reservoir as the start point?

Looking at the washer fluid bottle, it's at the 11:00 o'clock position. Top of the engine, passenger side. The cap has a picture of your steering wheel. I'm sure you have this information by now.

Need to locate coolant reservoir in 2004 Chevy Impala engine 3800 series 2

The coolant recovery tank is located between the power steering fluid reservoir and the underhood fuse block in the engine compartment on the passenger's side of the vehicle. .

The vehicle must be on a level surface. When your

engine is cold, the coolant level should be at the COLD

mark or a little higher. When your engine is warm,

the level should be up to the HOT mark or a little higher.

All I wanna do is check the power steering fluid level on my 2003 Impala. I know where the general vacinity of it is, but it certainly is not where it can be easily accessed. It is a 3800 engine.

If you reach down behind the engine on the passenger side you will feel the cap-it is pressure sensitive. you can take it off with one turn. it is a tight fit but is possible. then to add fluid you need a funnel with a long stem. you can feel when the funnel is in and add your fluid. After you add fluid replace the cap and start the car. take a flashlight and shine down near the pump to make sure you are not spraying fluid all over everything.
On the passenger side, near the firewall and down a foot or two, you'll find it. You can access it from above, but it isn't easy or you can jack up the car and remove the wheel and reach from the bottom to get to the power steering pump. Good luck and sorry for the bad news.

My power steering went out the other morning but it started working again. I was thinking maybe i needed some fluid in it but could not find the power steering pump and where to put the fluid at. Its an 07...

It should be on the lower right hand side in front of engine, look at your serpentine belt and it should wrap around a pulley that operates the pump, will be small, and if you find the right resivior, it will have a small dipstick attached to the cap, this will be the power steering put, be careful not to overservice, or premature failure may result. It is most likely just low on fluid and when you make a turn the level rises slightly enough to pick up fluid to operate the assisted steering.

Cannot find the power steering tank on 2002 chevy impala

It is WAAAAY down low. It is really hard to reach--even to check the fluid level. I recommend servicing when engine is cold.
