All the power steering fluids available in the parts stores work on all systems of all the manufacturer's, they are a universal fluid. If you want the GM power steering fluid go to GM dealer, there is only one fluid used so just ask for Power steering fluid.

The resovior is on the drivers side near the fender, it has a green cap on it. Use only VW fluid or you will have huge problems.

SOURCE: how do you add power steering fluid at a mazda rx8

Ignore earlier post - the RX-8 has an electric power assisted steering system - there are no hydraulics, and therefore no PAS fluid.

The power steering pump is in the front of the engine. You will see the serpentine belt on the pulley and it will look something like htis picture. The pump has a resevoir with a cap on top which is removable and has a dipstick built in to tell you how low you are on fluid.

SOURCE: where do you add power steering fluid?

The HHR does not use power steering fluid. The power steering is strictly an electric motor attached to the steering column under the dash. If you are having problems, you may need to have the motor replaced.

However, before you do, check the following fuses:

Underhood fuse #1 - 60A
Inside console fuse #19 - 2A

Either with kill the steering and may have been blown if you (or an uninformed mechanic) have jumped the car incorrectly.

How to add power steering fluid


There is a reservoir under the hood that stores power steering fluid. That is where you add the fluid. Most likely, yours will be located directly behind a drive belt pulley, attached directly to the power steering pump, and the cap should be marked for power stering fluid. It will contain a dipstick that has marks stating minimum and maximum fluid levels with the fluid either hot or cold. If you have to add to it often, you have a leak that needs to be repaired.

Need to add oil to the steering wheel system


1st of all, it's not oil, you need power steering fluid. Don't put anything else in it or you'll mess it up. 2nd, how do you know you need fluid? If you found the power steering pump and unscrewed the cap and looked inside, you've done 90% of the work already. Now just add POWER STEERING FLUID a little at a time and then screw the cap back on. Then take the cap back out and look at the stick that's on the cap. There is a line on the stick that tells you the correct fluid level. DO NOT OVERFILL is probably stamped on the cap as well. Heed this warning or you have a mess.
