It's increasingly difficult to steer my 2004 Lexus RX330. I added transmission fluid (Dextron III) as the level was low, and it still has not improved. Thoughts? Thank you!

My 2004 lexus rx330 makes beeping noise when i turn thr wheel, whats causing the beeping?


Without knowing exactly what the beeping noise is, if it is an electronic beep it could be a signal that your power steering fluid is low. When pressure (the steering wheel turning), is put on the system, if it is clogged or has low fluid it will strain the system and you get more of a squeal but Lexus could have a beeping to notify you The fluid is low. If you check the fluid and it is at the right level than your system needs a flush. It's about $80 at Jiffy Lube

Where is the power steering fill place


When the hood is popped, look for a cap that says ATF Fluid only. That is actually the power steering reservoir and not the transmission fluid fill location. I would recommend Dextron III or Dextron VI fluid for the power steering. Don't use your average power steering fluid, it says to only use ATF for a reason.

What kind of atf to use for power steering in a 95 bmwti


Use either Dextron III or Dextron VI transmission fluid. Dextron VI is basically just a synthetic version of III and quite a bit more expensive.

Can i use dextron 2 transmission fluid in a1992 lexus ls400


Hello there,

Surely, you can use a Dexron II transmission fluid but I would recommend you get the Dexron III instead. In actual fact, always use Dexron III ATF for better efficiency of your vehicle.

Best of luck....

Powersteering and transmission fluid How to check


the power steering has a resavour near the fender with a lid on it remove the lid and it has a dip stick on it as long as it's on the stick it's OK. The transmission uses Mercon dextron III and it's important to check with the engine running and to not over fill it. From the low part to the high it's only half a quart so when adding put in in a litttle at a time and check it each time and if it doesn't look right chack it several times as the oil can be on the sides of the dip tube. and too low is bad too. If in doubt. have this work done by a trained perfessional as being wrong can be very expensive.

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2004. How do you do it?


tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)

What type of power steering fluid can be used for 1995 Lexus ES 300 that could be buy from Auto Parts or Pep Boys ?


Power steering fluid is fairly generic. Buy a good quality brand. If the system is low, it has to be leaking somewhere. In that case use a good conditioner such as the one made by Lucas. It is the only brand name product I've ever used that has worked on a consistent basis. And, will not harm internal components.(sound like a salesman? I'm not!) No chemical will repair broken or severely worn parts, but seals can dry out and leak. Never use transmission oil in power steering. That used to be OK but is not now.
