SOURCE: Location of power steering fluid refill container

it should be on top of power steering pump - look over right front fender at the engine belt - on left back corner of the motor the power steering pump should be seen below the alternator - reach down and turn cap that is on top of pump - they should have put a remote tank on pumps

SOURCE: power steering fluid leak

Does it leak while not running or when it runs? If it leaks without running you may have a bad P/S pump, return line or a crack in the resevior. If it only leaks while running you probably have a blown pressure line or a return line rupture. You may have a bad steering rack. The pressure lines typically will rust through, the return lines typically crack or rub thru. Hope this helps you.

What happens if I put steering fluid in brake fluid container?


That's a problem. Power steering is a heavy slick fluid, very similar to transmission fluid (my daughter's BMW actually takes ATF fluid in the power steering reservoir). Brake fluid is very thin, solvent-like fluid. I advise getting the system drained, flushed and refilled ASAP.

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!!

Can I use stp automatic transmission fluid for power steering in my 2002 jetta


I suggest only using power steering fluid in the power steering system in VW Jetta's. I tried using trans. fluid before and it made the pump wine constantly especially when cold and I had to purge the system and refill it with power steering fluid to get it to stop.

Noise when terning and while just going straight plus losing fluid


You've got a power steering fluid leak. The noise is the power steering pump low on fluid. I would put some Lucas Power Steering treatment in the system and refill the fluid. It won't fix the leak forever, but it will recondition the seals and rubber and buy you a lot of time.

I hope you don't have permanent damage from using the wrong fluid. There are several different types of power steering fluid and they are not necessarily compatible. I would have a shop flush the system and refill with the specified fluid.

Power steering is noisy


Often, noise in the power steering is the result of air trapped in the system. It can also come from contaminated or worn out fluid. If the fluid level in the power steering reservoir is low, the pump will tend to whine and/or chatter. First, check the fluid level. If it is low, there is a leak somewhere. Keep the fluid level up if you must drive it, or the power steering pump will be destroyed. Once you have determined there are no leaks, or repaired any leaks you have have found, the best solution is to remove as much fluid from the system as possible, and then refill it with fresh, clean fluid. There is a product called Lucas power steering stop leak (or somesuch) which is excellent for quieting power steering components and extending their life. Use 1/2qt to 1 qt of regular fluid first, and then the whole bottle of Lucas when refilling. Top off with regular fluid as needed. Be sure to check the fluid level again after letting the engine idle and turning the wheels back and forth several times, as some air will be purged from the system and the level may go down substantially.

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.
