    Thanks for your help. I filled the reservoir to the level you recommended and everything is fine now. It was very low but I see no signs of a leak. I will keep an eye on it.

    rdyrock , you asked about good brand of power steering and johnnyc85 answered valvoline automatic transmission fluid dextron 3 . He answered it wrong because power steering fluid is completely different fluid with automatic transmission fluid , you can't put transmission fluid on power steering reservoir .

Steering is stiff at low rpm


Change the Power Steering Fluid- before you have complete
steering rack failure


Has to be done every 3 years on all vehicles,
as well as trans fluid, at same time ,3 years also

Add some Lubgard for power steering

If you go to the auto parts store, make sure you don't use the
yellow & purple Honda one,may have to order for you or have something
at dealer parts counter to add to it

Use the new GM Multi Viscosity Fluid #12345867 Qt size

Where do you pour the power steering fluid


Look at the engine where the belts are. You should see the power steering pump. The pump has a cap with a built in dipstick (black in color). Twist it 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it off. The power steering fluid goes in there. Be carefull not to overfill it because when it gets hot and you turn your wheels, it will overflow out of the top.

2003 trailblazer has a knock in steering not all the time but sometime also a whining sort of like the power steering pump but dont do it much either


Have you been changing the power steering fluid every
30,000,miles when doing the trans fluid at 30,000

When you do that add some lubgard for P/S
just don't use the honda version

Get the Fluid at the dealers parts counter
& lubgard at auto parts

The knock may be a worn steering rack if you have one.
That happens when the fluid isn't changed
