Where do I add power steering fluid on a 1971 else camino

If it still has the original V8 engine installed you will need to locate the power steering reservoir which you should find on the drivers side front of the engine. The top on the PS reservoir will be marked to identify it as the power steering and the top also serves as a dip stick to ensure you have the correct level of fluid. When adding fluid do not overfill or you will have issues.

Many of these vehicles have had all kinds of different engines installed so if you have one of those then the PS reservoir could be anywhere at or near the front of the engine. There should be a marking on the cap to identify it though.

If you are unsure then don't do anything. Take the vehicle to a mechanic and have him locate the PS reservoir for you because you will just cause problems if you tip the PS fluid in the wrong filler.

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.

It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

Where is the steering fluid located on a 1997 poinitac grand prix

The steering fluid reserve is on top of the power steering pump which is located behind the engine block (between engine and passenger compartment) on passenger seat side of vehicle. The steering pump has a large pulley that is driven by the serpentine belt, it is lower than the alternator which has a small pulley. The steering fluid reserve is directly on top of the steering pump, it's not too easy to reach (you will get dirty) but you can twist the plastic cap on top of it to the left to remove and there should be a dipstick attached to the cap. You may need to use a funnel or tube to add fluid.

Where is the power steering fluid added? I can't find the cap under the hood.

It should be located on the drive belt end of the engine with a steering wheell picture on the cap or it reads power steering fluid on top.Check and clean all caps it may just be dirty making it unable to read it.On some of those cars they put it down low in the engine compartment depending where they located the pump.

Where is the power steering reservoir located on the 1990 Toyota Carolla?

Make sure that your vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is cool before you check fluid levels. Power steering fluid and other fluids read at different levels when warm instead of cool. Locate the power steering fluid reservoir. It is located under the hood of your Toyota Corolla on the passenger side next to the engine. The reservoir is connected to the power steering pump. Remove the cap and use the dipstick to check the fluid level. For the most accurate reading, clean off the dipstick with a rag first, then re-insert and remove for the fresh reading. Add automatic transmission fluid or power steering fluid approved for use in Toyota vehicles if the fluid is below the low level mark. Add fluid gradually to keep for over filling the reservoir.
this will help.thanks.

Where do you fill power steering fluid in 2003 chevrolet monte carlo

The 3100 and 3400 Engine Models have the power steering reservoir located on top of the engine on the passenger side of the vehicle, located directly on top of the power steering pump. The 3800 engine has the power steering pump located on the rear of the engine. you will want to wait until the engine is cold, some of them are a tight squeeze and can cause burns when it's hot. You have to, with the engine OFF, reach back and around and take the cap off to pull out the Cap/Dipstick and check it. Filling it is the tricky part, I have some tubing attached to the end of a funnel I use to Fill them, I currently work at a GM Dealership. Sometimes the wiring runs right on top of the reservoir, and it can be a hassle to get the cap off.
