You should add it to the power steering pump reservoir, which if you have the 3800 series II its behind the engine on the passenger side.

I had this exact car and I had all the same problems your talking about, The pump although I can't tell you for sure is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it. If it is whining it is because it is low on fluid, also when topping it off fill it to the full mark while it is running. If it is foamy turn the steering wheel all the way left and all the right a few time to help get rid of the air. You may have to let it sit a while to let the bubble escape, check and do this again, it could be a bad pump also. The overheating problem I had with mine was a bad temp sensor for the computer. It has two temp guages and the computer uses on to activate the fan as needed. I also had another problem with mine, on the front of the intake is a small plastic elbow for a heater hose and this goes bad. Had to replace mine. Wasn't hard, and the part was cheap. Hope this helps you!

Power steering fluid. where does it go


Look for the power steering pump which has a pulley and a belt that drives it. There should be a cap on top to add fluid.

Power steering not working tried adding power steering fluid didn't work.


The Pontiac power steering pump run off a shaft driven and not belt driven. This means that when the steering system is stressed instead of the belt slipping it puts a lot of stress on that shaft and could cause that to break. If nothing seems to effect the power steering I would have to guess that this is what happened and the power steering pump will have to be replaced.

I need to drain the power steering fluid. Contaminated. Is there an easy way to do this?


Disconnect the line out from the pump, start engine, fluid will pump out, make sure to turn off immediately when flow stops, you don't want to run the pump dry for longer than necessary.
