How to Check Power Steering Fluid

Power Steering Fluid Inspection

Safety Tip:
Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or closed toe shoes.

With the engine off, open the hood and locate the power steering fluid reservoir. Most reservoirs are translucent and connected to the power steering pump with a hose. If you cannot find the reservoir, refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the exact location.

Check the fluid level with the marks on the side of the reservoir. Fluid level will vary with temperature so make sure you are looking at the correct mark. If the reservoir is not translucent and there are no markings, remove the cap to check the level.
