    The cap is green about the same color as the above posting. It has no writing on it. The dip stick says full, min. nothing else. It appears to have some kind of oil in the resivor. Thanks for your help.

I found out what the green cap is for. This is a power steering resivor. You have to fill it with a speical kind of power steering fluid so you won't damage your pump. You can order it on line.

Check the brake fluid level!!!
Use recommended fluid (DOT 3, 4, or 5, whatever it says on the reservoir cap).
If the level is fine, check the level sensor, connector, and wiring attached to the brake fluid reservoir. These wires and connectors are known to corrode.
If the fluid is very low, and you need to top it up, there is a leak. if that is the case, tow it to a shop immediately.

Where is the dipstick for checking the brake fluid


The brake fluid reservoir does not use a dipstick for checking levels.

The reservoir is located on the driver side of the vehicle in the engine compartment, directly in front of the firewall and to the left of the strut tower.

It has a black cap on it that will have the fluid type required and a warning about cleaning the cap before removing it. This helps prevent anything from contaminating the fluid. If you see that the reservoir is dirty, cleaning it will reveal the fill line for the fluid level. Fill with the described fluid requirement on the cap.

The fluid is below at min, which the mechani says is good for a mazda 3. Is that right?


As you didn't explain which fluid is low, here's a general explaination. There's always a cause for any fliud being low, the only fliuds that can fall below minimun levels are brake fliud [ as the brake pads or shoes wear it takes more fluid to push the surfaces together ] if not checked on a routine service, such as oil changes. The other is windshield washer fliud, which is lost with use.
Any other fliud loss isn't normal, and should be addressed.

2003 pontiac grand prix how do I find the power steering fluid, add to it, or check it...I see a container with a (0) on it ...is this where the steering fluid is! pics would help! also I have been told...


the power steering reservoir is located at the front of the motor, when you are standing at the passenger side looking toward the drivers side,by the firewall side of the motor there should be a cap that when you pull it out it will have a dipstick that tells you what the level is in the reservoir,it will usually say power steering fluid on it.you check it with the engine off and there is a low level line and a high level line(full)with the motor cold it should be about half way between the low and high mark,when warm or hot it should be closer to the high mark.only use fluid for power steering

Where is the transmission fluid on a 2003 chevy cavalier? i cannot afford to take it to a shop.


some models didn't come with a dipstick , the trans fluid temp needs to be monitered with a scanner and when it reaches a certain temp there is a bolt that needs to be removed just above the passenger axle(while running) ...if fluid comes out it's full if it doesn't you need to close the screw and add fluid under the air box should be a red cap and re-check ...it is much safer to take it to a shop because it also has to be pretty level when you do it ,if you cant afford it i would call around untill i found someone reasonable in price i would value checking the level at 35.00 to 65.00

Where do you check the transmission fluid


It's synthetic fluid and there is no dipstick , transmission sealed.
How to check fluid:
Warm up engine , raise vehicle on the lift with engine runing on park position , unscrew drain plug (don't warry it has tube in there ), if you see fluid coming out for 10-15 sec.- level is ok.
If nothing coming out - level is low.
There is a filler tube in front of the transmission with the red cap and red plustic sealing clamp.
If you able to take clamp out without braking it , you can reuse it after.
Fill transmission through filler tube with engine runing
and trany on park position , till fluid starts runing from drain plug , reinstall drain plug , reseal filler tube.
NEVER TURN ENGINE OFF WITH TRANSMISSION DRAIN PLUG UNINSTALLED !!!!!!!!!!!

(I)(P)Brake light on


hi from the uk this warning light has two functions 1st it comes on when park brake is on then goes off as p/brake released the other function of this light being on ? is a warning that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low the sensor is on the fill cap however! low level may be a fliud leak ? orsimply the level has dropped over time due to as the brake pads and rear shoes wear down then the fluid displaces from reservoir and compesates for the wear and fluid keeps the w/cylinders always topped up automatically may i suggest you check your b/pads and shoes are not too low for safety if so then renew asap also make sure there is no sign of fluid leaking on brakes especially the rear cyl's and actual b/pipes hope this helps?

I just got a 1998 cadillac catera and i been trying to figure it out where iwhs the transmision in this car cause i have to put some oil on it. but i can find it. i would like to know exactly where is it.


The transmission in your 1998 Cadillac Catera is a "sealed unit". Under normal use, it does not require service to the transmission filter/fliud.
If you insist on checking/changing the fluid, there is a fill plug at the side of the transmission that will help you determine the fill level of the transmission.
You warm the transmission to operating temp, and remove that plug with the engine running, then on top of the transmission on the driver's side of the vehicle, there is a red plastic cap you remove. Insert a funnel, and slowly add fluid, watching until it begins to dribble out of the check hole under the car. Reinsert the check plug, then cap the transmission again.
Recommended fluid type is Dexron-VI.
