The dip stick is part of the cap on the top of the power steering pump. The cap and stick is usually colored black. When you remove the cap( it twists right off), pull the cap straight up and turn over. The stick is right there. Its about 3 or 4 inches long. It will be marked for the proper amount of power steering fluid you need, just like the oil dip stick. Hope this helps.

Its like a grumbling when the car is idling is this common for a power steering pump to go


This could be a power steering pump, they can make that noise. Did you listen under the hood with a piece of wooden dowel (old broom stick works well) to try and isolate the location of the noise? You can also for cheap buy a mechanics stethoscope, they are great.

I just bought a 2002 trooper, 142k miles. Where is the transmission / power steering dip stick ?


The transmission doesn't have a dip stick you will have to take some where and have them check it, unless you feel comfortable doing it your self. The power steering on the other hand. If you pop the hood look around you should see a black cap that says powersteering fluid, when you take the cap off it should have a dip stick attached to the lid if not there will be a fluid level mark on the side of the tank, which you took the lid off of.

I dont know where to put the power steering fluid at. Please help


Hi!!

The Power Steering pump is located in the front of the engine usually on the right side, and is driven by a belt, on top of the pump there is a screw-on cap about 2" in diameter that says POWER STEERING FLUID, integrated on the cap, is the dip stick, make sure not to overfill PS deposit.

Where is the power steering fluid dip stick on a 1988 XJ-S?


I am not familiar with this car. However, on most cars the power steering level is not determined by using a dipstick. On most cars, you open the power steering fluid reservoir and look at it to determine if the reservoir is full. I hope this helps.

Pull out the dip stick and see where the level is. The dipstick is located on the dr. side of the engine compartment near trans. I don't remember if the color of the stick is red or yellow.
