The power steering fluid reservoir is located on the power steering pump assembly. The power steering fluid should be checked at least every 6 months. Power steering fluid level is indicated by marks on a fluid level indicator on the underside of the reservoir cap or by see-through marks on the reservoir itself. There is a COLD and a HOT mark on the dipstick. To prevent possible overfilling, check the fluid level only when the fluid has warmed to operating temperatures and the engine is shut OFF . If necessary, add fluid to the power steering pump reservoir.
