FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS & LEVEL CHECK
See Figures 1 through 5
The power steering fluid level should be checked at least once every 6,000 miles (7,500 miles for 1975 and later models). To prevent possible overfilling, check the fluid level only when fluid has warmed to operating temperature and the wheels are turned straight ahead. If the level is low, fill the pump reservoir with DEXRONreg; Automatic Transmission Fluid (1967-76 models) or with GM power steering fluid (1977-81 models) until the fluid level measures "Full" on the reservoir dipstick. Low fluid level usually produces a moaning sound as the wheels are turned (especially when standing still or parking) and increases steering wheel effort.
