All Power Steering fluids are the same. You do not need to buy a brand name to get a good fluid.

A good quality power steering fluid from any auto parts store will work. If you are not near a store with power steering fluid you can substitute a good tranmission fluid for Chrysler vehicles.

Can it hurt the steering pump by putting oil in it?

YES. your power steering pump is a hydraulic pump that pushes fluid through lines to make your wheels move. hydraulic fluid such as ATF or POWER STEERING FLUID is good for your power steering pump. it is a PUMP after all. OIL has the purpose of lubricating, and has very different qualities than hydraulic fluid. DO NOT put OIL in your power steering pump... put POWER STEERING FLUID or if you can't get power steering fluid AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID will do...

Why is your car squeaking when you turn the steering wheel?

The power steering fluid might be low. Add some power steering fluid to see if that helps. The power steering fluid chamber is under the hood. It might also be the belt that drives the power steering pump. There are products to lubricate belts and quiet them down. These are available, as is the power steering fluid, from a good auto supply store. Or you could have a shop top off your fluid and put on a bit of the "belt quiet" stuff.

Why is the power steering fluid leaking in a 2000 Malibu ls?

The power steering fluid is leaking because somewhere in the power steering system there is a leak. It is possible one of the seals on the steering rack has worn out. That would be a good place to start. It could also be coming from a leaky seal on the power steering pump or from one of the lines.


Do power steering sealers work?

I've had very good luck using power steering sealers especially on Ford products. If the hose or steering rack is not pouring out fluid, you may have good luck with it.

What other reasons could cause a squeaky steering wheel when you turn wheel no airbag warning lights or any lights go on for that matter?

it sounds like your power steering fluid is low,,,,, or your power steering pump is leaking (which means it needs to be replaced)... I hope it turns out to be low steering fluid. If the power steering fluid is low, you can have someone add fluid, but keep and eye on whether or not that fluid level is dropping or leaking. Good luck to you.


Will anything happenif you put brake fluid in your power streering fluid?

Yes, not a good think. Your power steering will not properly and because of lake of lubrication it will die. You need clean power steering system of brake fluid. It's not hard to do but just tricky.

Why isn't my power steering working on a 1993 mercury cougar?

First step would be to check if you have enough power steering fluid in the system. If it is low then fill it up to the fill line and it would probably be a good idea to check for leaks in the system. If you check the fluid and it is good, then there would be only one other option, and that would be the power steering pump.
