The 2002 thru 2007 do not have the traditional hydraulic power stering unit that requires fluid. In these models, power assist is provided by an electrical power steering unit. Nothing to check there but the battery.

The 2002 thru 2007 Saturn Vues do not have hydraulic power steering units. There for there is no fluid level to check.

For these models, power steering is delivered through and electrical power assist unit.

So stop looking and be glad that there isn't yet another fluid to begin leaking.

MOST LIKELY THIS IS THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND THE ELECTRIC ASSIST FAN UNIT CONNECTED TO IT. OFTEN THE FAN COVER WILL OR CAN GET CLOGGED, BUT MORE LIKELY IT IS THE PUMP. IF IT GOES OUT IT USUALLY DO SO SLOWLY. THE STEERING WILL BE HARDER BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STEER. THE NORMAL COST FOR THE REPAIR IS $1000 WITH LABOR. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG, BUT CONSIDER BUYING THE PART ONLINE AND DOING IT YOURSELF OR TAKE THE PART TO A COMPETENT GARAGE
AND HAVE THEM DO IT.YOU COULD SAFE HALF THE COST!

SOURCE: Where is the Power steering Fluid located?

This is what it looks like:

THERE IS NO CAP TO FILL IT LIKE NORMAL POWER STEERING SYSTEMS. IT HAS TO BE SERVICED FROM THE INLET HOSE.

  1. Fill pump with hydraulic fluid through intake line. Turn the pulley/shaft by hand until fluid comes out of pressure port.
Look underneath the car up at the driver's side of the car above your tie rods (or look at it from above). It is mounted to your steering gear.

Power steering fluid


Locate the power steering reservoir under the hood.
Check the fluid level against the marks on the dip stick; there are hot and cold marks.
Add fluid as specified in your owners manual to keep the level at the appropriate mark.

Check the power steering fluid. located at the front of the engine where the belt is. if it low fill it to the mark on the stick/lid. if the noise is still ther after a while then you will need at minimum a new pump. you will need to have the system check for leaks.

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.
