Use a standard Dextron III ATF. The fill depends on weather your engine is warmed up or cold. There is a fill line for each on the power steering fluid reservoir. Do not over fill.

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?

It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...

2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.

If you haven't totally removed all the gasoline from the fuel supply by draining the tank, cleaning the fuel lines and replacing the fuel filter, the leftover gasoline will effect the engine and performance. Hope this helped... Please vote for me.

Started my truck this morning. there was no power assist in either the steering or brakes?

Your fluids are low or your belts are slipping or it is so cold, nothing is flowing properly. Did it get better as you drove? If not, remember, stopping is much more important than going and steering is also very important. I suggest you ask your mechanic to take a look at your Silverado. This is a big truck and you must maintain control of it.

It could be something else ... I am not a Chevrolet mechanic ...

Thanks for your visit today.

What kind of power steering fluid for a volvo s60 52 plate petrol 2 litre turbo

To avoid foaming and get the best longevity from your power steering unit, I would use "Automatic: Volvo transmission oil 1161540-8" which is Mobil 3309. It is a synthetic and will work well.
