FLUID LEVEL CHECK
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
The fluid level in the power steering reservoir should be checked at least every 15,000 miles (24,000 km). The vehicle should be parked on level ground, with the engine warm and running at normal idle. Remove the filler cap and check the level on the dipstick; it should be in between the edges of the cross-hatched area on older models or within the "HOT" area on the dipstick on newer models. If the level is low, add Dexron® type ATF until the proper level is achieved.
Look down into the reservoir and check for evidence of foaming or emulsification which indicates the existence of air in the system.
