Fig. Fig. 1: Checking the steering gear fluid location

Every year or 15,000 miles (24,000 km) you should check the steering gear housing lubricating oil. The filler plug is on top of the housing and requires a 14mm wrench for removal. The level should be 18-28mm from the top on 2WD models and 14-17mm from the top on 4WD models.
