How To Add Power Steering Fluid
- Be sure to consult your Owner Guide to determine the proper power steering fluid to use
- Start the engine and let it run until the temperature gauge reaches the center of the normal area between H and C
- With the engine idling, turn the steering wheel until it stops left and right several times
- Turn off the engine
- Locate the Power Steering Reservoir and wipe it clean with a rag
- Check the fluid level in the reservoir. If it is between the "MIN" and "MAX" lines, you do not need to add fluid
- If the fluid is below the “MIN” line, remove the cap and add fluid in small amounts until it reaches the proper range – do not fill above the “MAX” line
- Replace the cap and make sure it is tight
If your vehicle power steering fluid level is depleted or leaking, it could be an indication of a larger problem.
