The brake fluid reservoir is on the bulkhead at the bottom of the screen(i think cap colour yellow) and the power steering fluid goes into the cap marked pas(cap colour black)located at the side of the engine at the front of the engine bay.

Do you mean hard to steer your steering wheel?
If you have a noise when you are turning your steering wheel, you may have low power steering fluid. Add power steering fluid into your power steering fluid reservoir to the level required (check with your manual book). Make sure you get the right power steering fluid for Audi A4. Hope it will help

I need to add some power steering fluid to the reservoir. I don't have any but I do have automatic transmission fluid. Can I use that?

I would not recommend adding transmission fluid in your power steering pump.
Years ago one could get away with it.
If you do not have a Audi dealer near by,
Parts houses have a universal power steering fluid for sale.

Audi a4 2001 19tdi, yellow brake warning light comes on and stays on , discs and pads all ok. what is the cause

Check the fluid level, and then check that all the leads, one to each brake assembly, are clean and secure at the connection. ( a favorite with garages is to not put them back as they founds them!!). Good luck

Have a cranking noise whenever i make a sharp left then right turn, what could it possibly be? Also my fuel consumption seems quite high despite a new fuel filter, any ideas? It's a 1999 Audi A6 2.4 SE...

Check your power steering fluid level and if it has never been replaced you may want to. The tricky thing about replacing the power steering fluid is that it does not have a drain plug for the fluid. What I have done in the past was to siphon the fluid out with a turkey baster from the dollar stop since it's just going to be discarded, then replace the power steering fluid that has been removed. The serpentine belt may need to be replaced also. 
The fuel economy could be cause by many things, but the common is dirty MAF sensor, throttle body, and air filter. Clean the MAF sensor with a can of MAF sensor cleaner and the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and replace the air filter. As for the MAF and throttle body cleaner, just follow the instruction on the cans or ask the parts store for advice such as Auto Zone. Auto Zone can give you the step by step instruction do getting the job done. 
Repcap: Check the power steering fluid level and try to replace some of the fluid. Replace the serpentine belt if needed after inspection,look for cracks on the inside of the belt where the ribs are. Clean the MAF sensor and throttle body Inspect and replace the air filter if it's been in there for 1 year or 30,000 miles.
Good luck and hope this helps.

NO, DOT 4 fluid is brake fluid, not power steering fluid. The power steering fluid resevoir is black with a green cap.

Power steering audi a6 1999

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 or 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.
