It's located underneath the alternator on the backside of the engine (passenger side). GM hid it well.

This is a bad design by gm, you will need a long funnel if you want to add, the resivor is located on the pump, you will need a cool engine so that you are not brunt, open the hood and stand over the pass/side fender look back toward the windsheild area or firewall which is the wall of the engine compartment,look in rear of engine near the belt but behind it. look down and you will see the cap for the power steering, remove cap by untwisting and pulling out, theres a dip stick on the cap to measure the level, lets see if i can give you a picture of this.here is a diagram of the pump use this to locate it, this is a view form the pass/side. good day.where is the power steering bottle located??? - johnjohn2_99.gif

Golf5 GTI steering wheel is hard why?


if your steering wheel is hard do you mean its hard to turn it? If that is the case locate your power steering fluid bottle under the bottle it sits close to the water bottle resevoir and see if you have enough power steering fluid in. If by chance you have enough in then your next step will be to locate the power steering pressure switch and look if its damaged by chance.

What is the atf oil bottle at the side of the air filter for


Do you mean that there is a plastic bottle of ATF sitting loose under your hood? Or are you asking what the black reservoir with a knurled cap that is full of ATF is for?
If you are asking about the reservoir that is part of the car, it is the power steering fluid. Car parts stores will try to sell you fluid in bottles that say Power Steering Fluid, but your car uses Dextron ATF which is the same thing only it is cheaper when you buy ATF by the quart rather than PS Fluid by the pint.
If you have a bottle of ATF, someone probably put it there so it would be handy when they needed to top off the power steering reservoir. Topping off the power steering reservoir is a routine exercise on many BMWs because their power steering hoses tend to leak.

My 1997 ford windstar power steering is leaking from the bottom of the steering column out of the rubber boot


replace the power steering rack or you can try (lucas power steering stopleak) alot of people will tell you this does not work but i found that if you refill with lucas brand power steering stop leak when low after a couple bottles it does work and will seal it up. I had a bad leak on mine (about two bottles of fluid a day after using lucas ..about 4 bottles it sealed up and i havnt had a problem in about two years.)

What liquids go in each resevoir?


Coolant in 50% concentration goes into the coolant overflow bottle. Windshield wiper fluid into the wiper fluid bottle. Power steering fluid into the power steering fluid bottle.
You do not need to add any other fluids to these. Do not add water to the washer fluid bottle for example, if you drive in a climate that would allow it to freeze.

The power steering suddenly went out on my 2000 Kia Sportage. No other problems, still drivable you just have to crank the wheel really hard. Where is the power steering fluid located? How do I check it?


Check to see if the power steering fluid reservoir has the proper amount of fluid. If the fluid is low you will hear a noise from under the hood and the steering will become harder. Look under the front of the car for oil leaks. The other thing is the belt may be broken or come off the pulley. Normally this belt is used for more than one item such as the alternator, engine water cooling pump or air conditioner compressor. If this is the case than one of the above mentioned systems would also have failed.

Audi power steering pump location


Before you replace the pump, check the filter located inside the oil tank. This filter cleans the oil before going to pump. REMEMBER that Audi uses a special oil!!! Not your normal power steering fluid! Mixing them could cause damage to the entire system!
