FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS



Use Dexron®II automatic transmission/transaxle fluid when adding fluid to the power steering reservoir.

LEVEL CHECK



See Figure 1

The reservoir for the power assisted steering is usually located at the rear of the engine compartment on the firewall. The fluid level should be checked at regular intervals. With the engine running, the fluid level should be between the MAX and MIN marks on the outside of the reservoir. If fluid is added, make sure the filler cap is secured.
