Where do I top up the steering fluid for the BMW 760 Li?


You will see a black canister with a cap on it that says CHF 11S on it that is your steering fluid reservoir and that CHF 11S (which is normally green in colour) is the only type of fluid you can put in there, do not put standard power steering fluid in (Red in colour) as this will result in the system not working properly.

Kia Sedona hard to turn (2006)


Hi
If your system has leaked fluid out when you've topped it back up it could have caused an airlock in the system this can usually be rectified by turning the steering wheel from lock to lock several times whilst the vehicle is stationary this usually pushes the air out but keep checking the fluid bottle as the level will drop whilst its getting rid of any air !
Hope this helps Nick

Terrible whining in the steering? What could this possibly be?


Thank you for the inquiry.
For some reason power steering fluid does get contaminated and needs to be replaced. Worst case the fluid is low and you are hearing gear whine. It's a known issue with this pump to whine when the PSF is contaminated. Needs to be checked and serviced.
Here is a procedure for you Do It Your-self-ers:
You can easily change the fluid yourself, and save a ton of money.

If you follow the lines that go from the steering rack to the cooler located around the radiator area, there's a hose that comes out of the cooler, and connects with a hard line right above the left front frame rail. The connection is a simple spring clamp.

Easy but fairly messy to change. Engine OFF, lift the front of the car to get the front wheels off the ground, put a pan under the hose line, and pulled it loose from the hard line. The bad fluid will drained out, then slowly turn the wheels from side to side a bunch of times to pump out all of the fluid from the rack. When all of the fluid is out, reconnected the line, then fill the fluid reservoir with a high quality Power Transmission Fluid. You can again, turn the wheels side-to-side to get the new fluid into the rack. Then, start the car, again turning the wheels side to side. Top off the reservoir, and should not have any more noise from the power steering pump. It will take a little less than a full quart to completely refill the system.
Kind regards,
TF

Where do you put power steering fluid in a 2007 malibu Ltz.


Power Steering Fluid Power steering pumps are ordinarily lubricated with power steering fluid. Use the correct type for the vehicle. Check the owner's manual if you are unsure.

Usually it's a belt driven power steering fluid pump that has hoses that lead to the rack and pinion steering.

Unscrew the cap and add power steering fluid to it there.

My Power Steering fluid is low, I want to add power steering fluid. I can't find the cap to add fluid in my 2006 Chevy Malibu LTZ.


how do you know its low then? it's there in the engine compartment, its usually set in a small black plastic box towards the front off most engines because its run by the serpentine belt, so follow the belt on your car it rolls right over the power steering unit. it"ll have a circular knob with small half moon cuts on the outside to make it easier to grip, and right on the top, in yellow writing, it'll say power steering fluid only! Hydraulic fluid or transmission fluid, dont put brake fluid in there..always in a pinch you can pour transmission fluid in. Now if its leaking i highly recommend "Lucas" stop leak power steering fluid, but only to top it off dont poor in the whole bottle at once because this stuff works too good! and could lock up your steering. Everytime its low just top it off again.
can you rate my answer.thank you.

Whining and grinding when turning the wheels in a


The Power Steering Reservoir is foaming the fluid, causing the noise. Honda's solution is to replace the reservoir with a new one that does not foam the fluid. You can do the same by punching a hole in the screen at the bottom of the reservoir. Then idle the car for a moment or two and flush the fluid. WalMart PS fluid will work fine.
