REMOVE THE CAP FROM THE RESIVOR AND YOU WILL SEE A STICK GAUGE AS PART OF THE CAP, WIPE CLEAN AND LOOK AT THE GAUGING ON THE STICK TO SEE WHERE THE FULL MARK IS, ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE IS WARM, PUT CAP ON AND THEN REMOVE AND SEE WHERE THE OIL GOES ON THE STICK IF LOW ADD AS NEEDED AND CHECK AGAIN, THEN START ENGINE AND TURN WHEEL TO LEFT AND FULL RIGHT TURNS AND THEN BACK TO STRAIGHT, SHUT MOTOR DOWN AND CHECK THE LEVEL AGAIN IS STILL LOW ADD AGAIN, HOPE THIS HELPS.

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.

Power steering whines


Check the fluid level and add as much as is appropriate. Keep in mind that you must use Audi/VW power steering fluid, as it's a proprietary mixture and use of "normal" fluid will ruin the steering rack (that'll run you over a grand to replace). Do this soon - extended periods of running with low PS fluid will burn up the pump.
