You have a bad hose somewhere. I would start at the power steering pump and follow each hose to find the leak. It is probably on the high pressure side, but to be sure you will have to check both the hoses. It will either be at a connection, or at the rack and pinion unit. I would recommend that you use some power steering fluid that contains stop leak, and that may resolve your issue. You will still want to address the leak because power steering fluid is combustible and could catch fire if it gets on the exhaust manifold.

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

Why is my power steering pump still screaming?


The screaming is caused by the pressure relief valve located inside the pump body opening.

This means that power steering fluid that should be circulating through the power steering servo is partially blocked.

This could be a safety problem in the making. I strongly suggest you take it to a trustworthy shop for a checkout.

How do i add power steering fluid to a 2005 mercedes benz ml350?


most parts stores for foriegn cars will advise you on this, but in my experience the pump/reservoir assembly may have either a cap on it or it may use a reservoir mounted on the firewall or either side that looks like a slave cylinder reservoir. it should be marked somewhere for power steering only..this reservoir may have a cap thats removeable and the full line will be visible on the outside of it, with power steering fluid only, fill to line..in exrteme cases, there is a hose that comes up to a cap somewhere(usually these types of refill setups are rare because it confuses the owner)where the fluid gets added, I have seen so many different styles of refil setups, so it just depends on which is used by the manufacturer of the car..be careful not to mix fluids as this will not help your situation..brake fluid wont mix with power steering fluid so just be warned..

I need to know where to put the brake fluid


In the brake master cylinder resevoir located under the hood directly over your steering shaft. You should see a rectangular shaped plastic cap. If you need to add brake fluid you need to have your brake system checked. You should never have to add brake fluid.

How do i flush the hydraulic steering system


You really can't flush out the steering system fluid other then siphoning the fluid out of the steering pump reservoir. This is the easy way.
The hard way:
Remove the filler cap from the top of your power steering system then disconnect the reservoir's hose. It should be located on the bottom of the reservoir. The hose can be tough to remove, so make sure you have plenty of patience.

Replace the reservoir's hose with another hose. It should lead to an empty container. You'll use this container to store the old power steering fluid as it leaves the reservoir. Lift the front end of your car off the ground by using a car jack.

Add new power steering fluid to the reservoir. As you add the new lubricant, it will force the old lubricant into the tube you've connected to the bottom of the reservoir.

Climb into the drivers seat and rack your steering wheel back and forth. The wheel should be locked in place, allowing only a slight range of mobility. This will help the extra lubricant within the power steering system to drain.

Watch the empty container. It should fill with old lubricant. Once the old lubricant has been flushed and you see clean fluid replacing it, you've finished the hard part.

Disconnect your hose and move the container. Replace the original reservoir hose. Pour new, clean power steering fluid into the reservoir. Rack your steering wheel a few more times to squeeze out air that might be trapped in the lines. Replace the filer cap and close your done.

Thank you for suing fixya and good luck

Power steering fluid is leaking from the cap which puts it all over the outside of the reservoir and that side of the engine compartment. Have to refill every other day. How do I fix it or do I need a...


did you overfill the fluid resovior? the cap is vented and provides no seal, so it the tank is overfilled it will bubble out the cap, if the tank is not overfilled you have a defective steering rack that is pulling in air through a defective seal and causing the fluid to foam and bubble out the cap vent.

When I turn the steering wheel, I hear a whining sound that gets louder the quicker I turn the wheel. It happens when turning left or right. Is this power steering? Or maybe an issue with the wheels?


u have a defectgive power steering pump, check the fluid level 1st, if that is ok flush the system and replace the pump, this will require a special power steering pulley puller and installer tool.

How can I fix the power streel fluid licking


You will have to replace the pump or the line that is leaking. Using stop leak is a waste of time and money on power steering pumps.
