Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I was on my way to work, when a fluid light came on and it became very hard to steer. I pulled off to the side and when i took the cap off my power steering it hissed, as if it had alot of air pressure. It had plenty of fluid. My car then started up fine and I came in to work with no problem. Should I get this checked out?

Power steering fluid


Checking the power steering fluid level at least once a month is a good idea, since as components in the high pressure system wear out, the possibility of leaks increases. Always stay alert for changes in steering wheel operation. If you suddenly find it hard to turn the wheel, check the steering fluid immediately.
Steps:
Step 1:Apply the parking brake and place the transmission in "Park" (automatic) or "Neutral" (manual).
Step 2:Check the level of the steering fluid in the reservoir. If your car is equipped with a see-through plastic tank, compare the level with the markings on the side the container. Other systems are equipped with a dipstick inside a plastic tube, or have a dipstick mounted on the reservoir cap.
Step 3:Pull the dipstick or remove the reservoir cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean shop rag. Insert the dipstick or replace the cap and remove it again to check the fluid level.
Step 4:
Make sure the level is within the crosshatched area on the dipstick or at the "Full" mark. If necessary, add steering fluid.
Step 5:
Place a small funnel or a funnel with a flexible hose on the dipstick tube or reservoir opening to add fluid.
Hope this helped your troubles!

Power steering fluid


Just went to a dealer today for my 2000 regal. It took them a while, but they showed me where my power steering cap was.

It is black and very hard to see. You need a small flashlight (LED recommended), and then need to look on the left side behind the engine and in front of where the glove box is. WAY down, under some hoses, and adjacent to the engine is the power steering cap (I'd estimate about 8-10" down). The best way to see it is to lean into the engine from the front while standing to the left of the center of the car. Lean forward and place the flashlight pointing down and slightly to the left behind the engine and at a level just below the block. Good luck!!
