on the front of the engine and it is run by the serpentine belt.
It is serviced in the power steering reservior.jd
in the top of the power steering reservoir on the passenger side of the engine.
where do i put the fluid Its under alternator.
Remove cap to power steering reservoir, add fluid, place cap on reservoir when done.
right behind and below the power steering pump on the block.
its located behind the power steering pump...you would have to remove the power steering pump to access it
located on passenger side in back of motor
on the passenger side of the car and it's driven by the serpentine belt.
On the 2004 Monte Carlo you may want to check with the dealer but I believe that this car was equipped with electronic steering assist and does not have a belt driven pump
You need to approach this problem beneath the vehicle. You will find transmission crossover, remove this part. Now locate the power steering hose and disconnect. A backup wrench may be necessary. This job is much easier with a lift.
My brothers 2003 Monte Carlo had this problem, was a plugged catalytic converter.
water pump is located right front corner just across from coolant tank.fwd of power steering pump next pulley over.
it controls all lights, guages, fuel pump, power breakes, anything power,............... power steering ect
Check your hoses from the power steering reservoir for cracks in them and also check the power steering rack on the firewall to see if the rubber seals on the ends of the rack are leaking, maybe the reservoir itself is leaking, have it checked out.
Buy a Haynes manual or factory service manual (FSM). This is a messy and time consuming job. It isn't terribly hard though.
on the 3.1, it is under power steering pump. remove pump set aside ,do not remove hoses.once removed sensor is reachable!! there should be one bolt to hold sensor in!!
The Power Steering unit is located under the alt. Make sure the engine is cold. Very tight area. I connected a rubber hose to the bottom of my funnel.
Well, if it is like my 2000 Monte Carlo, if you pop open the hood and stand by the passenger side and look down near the firewall you should see the power steering pump and the resevoir. Use a troublelight and you'll see it. To do any work on it, its best to remove the right front tire and you can access it from there. This is also how I had to replace my water pump when it went bad. The Einstein's at GM made it so I had to take all the bolts out of the power steering pump and move it just so I could get the water pump out.
The power steering pump is on the back side of the engine beneath the alternator. You need a mirror and light to get a view of the pump fluid reservoir on top of it. It will be easier to acess with the strut torsion bar off. Need a funnel with hose attached to add fluid.
If the Impala is the same as my 2001 Monte Carlo with a 3.8 L engine, the resivoir is on the pass. side way down low in back of engine compartment. You need a bright light to see it and it is very hard to get at!
Start by removing the lines, drain the fluids, then remove the pump pulley. After that, remove the mounting bolts.
The power steering reservoir is located on the passenger side rear of the Engine compartment underneath and behind the alternator. . It is a very tight fit.
