If it is completely drained, the power steering system will normally take about two or three liters of fluid. The cap should have a dipstick on it, or the reservoir will have marks on it. If you can't find any marks, fill it to about 4 cm from the top. It will expand some as it heats up, so do not overfill.

Torque converter question.

Your torque converter Is there only to convert the rotation of the engine into hydrolic pressure for the transmission. Turning the steering wheel wouldnt have ANY affect on the torque converter and wouldn't tear it up. If you have ever had a belt break on a car while driving, you may recall that steering the vehical becam harder as the vehicle slowed. This is becasue the power steering system is primarily used (and works its hardest) at lower (like parking lot) speeds.

The device that gives the power steering it Hydrolic pressure and such, is the "Power Steering Pump" this is only drivin by the engine's rotation via a belt(serpintine or what have you) Now, this can be damaged by that sort of activity, as whell as the rack and pinion that pushes and pulls the wheels (thus turning the vehicle). Now the Steering Rack is not a cheap piece to replace.

In my advise, Heed if you like, i wouldn't continue that unless you have deeper pockets than i and don't mind throwing it away! lol Reason is it does put un nessisary strain on the power steering components that will eventually fail because of the ammount of heat generated by the endless back and fourth (see-saw) motion of the steering rack, and the devices that give it power.

But, On a lighter note... there is not transmission fluid in the powersteering system(this is why they sell two different types of fluid.. haha) and the torque converter is not responcible for powering in anyway, the power steering system.

Hope this helps your understanding.

Any questions, hit me up!

Power steering went out on my 2005 chevy cobolt

NO FLUID. It's all electric, no hydrolics at all, do not try and find a place to put fluid into. You will need to get the codes out of the system to have an accuret diagnosis of what need's to be replace. The most common thing is the steering motor, but that may not be the case for your car. Report back with the codes in the system.

Where is the power steering Reservoir in a Bora V5

i haven't been able to confirm it positively but it appears that car has electric power steering. look at the items driven by the serpentine belt. do any appear to have a two hoses coming out of it. do this when the motor is off to avoid the potential of harming yourself.

2004 VW Beetle power steering fluid

I would use the factory Power steering fluid.  However as long as the fluid is Hydrolic oil G 002 000 you will be fine.  Just take this referance number in and have your local parts store see if they can come up with comprable fluid to the VW power steering fluid

the power brakes are a hydrolic system ran off of the power steering pump. therefore if you have a busted power steering hose the power brakes will not work.
