It is right on top of the front center of the engine. (Right side of car) It has a cap on top that is marked "POWER STEERING"
If you look in the owner's Manual on page 6-10 there is a picture of the engine compartment with arrows to show you where it is. It is marked by arrow "E".

Its actually located directly below the power steering resevoir. The resevoir cap will say POWER STEERING on it in orange letters to the right side of the motor directly on top next to the top of the motor where it says 3100 on motor.

Exactly which pulley is my water pump? (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 sfi v6)??????????????

The power steering pump is dead center on the top of the motor. If your standing on the passenger side the water pump is the next pulley to the right. The serpentine belt will go over the power steering pulley, under the water pump pulley, and then around the a/c compressor.

I need to add power steering fluid on my 2006 chevy malibu V6 3.5 liter engine were is it located

You will want to verify you have hydraulic power steering. Electronic power steering was an option on Malibu's and this may be why you cannot find the reservoir. The power steering pump would be driven by the belt in the event you have a hydraulic system. Thus making it easy to locate.

Where is the power steering fluid cap located in a pontiac g6 3500 v6?

On the 3.5 V6 the power steering in located on the front corner of the engine passenger side. You'll see the serpentine belt go around the power steering pump and there should be a cop on top of the pump with a picture of the steering wheel. It may be hidden by the cold intake tube from the air cleaner box. Good luck and keep me posted if you need more help locating it, I'll try to explain better. Always easier to show then tell LOL.

Where do you fill power steering fluid in 2003 chevrolet monte carlo

The 3100 and 3400 Engine Models have the power steering reservoir located on top of the engine on the passenger side of the vehicle, located directly on top of the power steering pump. The 3800 engine has the power steering pump located on the rear of the engine. you will want to wait until the engine is cold, some of them are a tight squeeze and can cause burns when it's hot. You have to, with the engine OFF, reach back and around and take the cap off to pull out the Cap/Dipstick and check it. Filling it is the tricky part, I have some tubing attached to the end of a funnel I use to Fill them, I currently work at a GM Dealership. Sometimes the wiring runs right on top of the reservoir, and it can be a hassle to get the cap off.
