when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20

it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.

hope this helped.

SOURCE: steering wheel is hard to steer

Depending on who, and how they checked the pump, it could be your pump is getting ready to cost you some hard earned cash. For a car of it's age...you may wan tto try and see if you can pick up a bone yard refuse just to check tings out...then agai you ru the risk of wasting time and money that way too.

I have to differ in my offering of advise from the last person that gave you a tip.

Buy American........it could be your job you're saving.

I hope this helps you in some way, good luck from us @ FixYa.com..have a safe New Year

First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.

Buick Regal supercharger 1998, while driving along the steering wheel tighten hard to turn, after pouring power steer fluid under the hood, the temperature light came on,the car ran hot, no smoke.


Do you mean the engine overheat warning? The power steering problem is most likely a defective steering rack, they always act up when hot due to internal seal leakage and fluid bypassing the seal.

Where is the power steering pump 97 geo tracker


97 geo tracker is not equipped with power steering. they where made so light that they just have steering assist which doesn't require power steering fluid or anything else. you will notice that when vehicle is parked or at slow speeds steering wheel is hard to turn. this is perfectly normal its just not power steering.

Battery light on - steering hard


My gut reaction is you have a slipping or a missing belt. Belts drive both the alternator (no power = battery light on) and hard to steer (belt drives power steering pump).

Open the hood and check it out.

Hi,
Your Malibu has Electronic assist steering.
Some malfunction occurred when the light came on.
May have been a loose connection. You will be able to steer the car if the malfunction re-appears. It will steer hard standing still but as you move it will get easier.
Best to take it to a shop and see if there are any codes stored to help locate the original power steering light malfunction.

Power steering problem


the reason you can't find the power steering pump is because the steering system is electric and won't have a pump or fluid,you need to go to the dealer for repairs

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

The power steering light is on in my 2007 Pontiac G5 Coupe


  • You have Electric Power Steering (EPS) not the traditional power steering pump. So there is no place to put power steering fluid in your vehicle.

  • Hope this helps.
