    Please note that if you cannot seem to find the obvious (and I mean obvious) power steering reservoir, it most likely means that you have ELECTRICAL power steering (not hydraulic) or on the other hand, you could be blind as a bat ;-) Electrical P/S is on all 4cyl and some 6cyl

Where is the power steering fluid location for a pontiac g6 2009 3.5L


I don't know this vehicle but if it was me I would follow the pipes back from the steering unit and they will cease at the steering pump reservoir and allow you to fill it there.

I have a 2006 Pontiac G6 3.5-4 cylinder and I need to know whether I have electric power steering or if I need to be putting power steering fluid in. I've misplaced my owner's manuel and I'm...


Everything I am seeing indicates it is a regular power steering pump that is belt driven. I looked up replacement parts for it and none of the replacements had any electrical connectors on them at all. Here is a link to one of the pages I looked at:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/details/QQPontiacQQG6QQA1_CardoneQQPower_Steering_PumpQQ20062010QQA120993.html

This tells me it should have a pulley attached and you should have a belt connected to it and there will be some type of reservoir attached to it to fill with fluid. The only problem I see here is I am not finding a lot about if that is true. I have seen some post asking about the Pump being connected to the transmission which really doesn't make a lot of sense. Not saying it didn't happen, Gm and Pontiac have done some dumber things in there attempt to make it better.

Cant find the power steering for a 2006 pontiac g6 (v6 engine)?


In 2006 Pontiac put ELECTRIC power steering in the G6's.

Your looking under the hood in the right location its just under that. its all electrical. Must have been not such a good idea because they switched back to normal power steering in 2007.

(I have an 06 G6 V6)

What does it mean when the power steering trouble light comes on over the radio of a 2006 pontiac g6


well... if you have electric power steering (no reservoir located in engine), you have a common problem that affects almost all owners with this type of cheap steering system (expensive to fix though)
GM should be ashamed

all depends on the engine
2.2 4cylinder have electric
3.5V6 can have one or the other
if you have a V6 then you will see the power steering cap through the engine cover on the right side if it has hydralic power steering

Can someone tell me where the power steering fluid for my 2008 pontiac g6 goes?


This car may have electric steering. If it has hydraulic power steering the reservoir would be on the right side, in the center on the engine on a V-6.

The 4 cylinder has just electric steering and no fluid reservoir.

Does the power steering cap on a pontiac G6 have a picture of a steering wheel and waves (indicating fluid)? Is it on the passengers side on top of the motor?


Hello! The power steering reservoir cap is black and does have a yellow picture of a steering wheel on it. It would indeed be located on the passenger's side of the engine, about halfway on the length of the motor. However, if you are unable to locate yours, you have a G6 equipped with the electronic steering system, which has no reservoir. A good way to determine this is if your car has the V6 engine, if it does - you have the electronic system.

Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

Where is the power steering resovoir on a pontiac G6 2006


Hello! If you have a V6 engine - then the resevoir is located on the right side of (as your facing) the motor, and roughly centered on the engine's side. You will see a cap with a yellow symbol that looks like a steering wheel. If your car is a 4 cylinder - you have an electric steering system, and therefore, no power steering fluid reservoir is present, or necessary.


Hope this helps!
