Most power steering units use the generic power steering fluid available at most auto part stores. However, some import makes are different, sometimes using different fluid types in different years. Your best bet is to check the manual for the correct type. Volvo 240 manual specifies the following: Power steering fluid Capacity: 0.8 US qts = 0.75 liters.
Fluid type: ATF
Replace: no fluid change required.
The dipstick is attached to the cap. Fluid level should be between MIN and MAX marks. Add fluid when the level is at the ADD mark. The ATF in question is Dexron/Mercon, also used in the 240's automatic transmission. You may find it in different types, like II or III. The later type supersedes and replaces the older type. If you have to add fluid more often than once every couple of months, look for leaks. Hoses would be the first place to check, followed by pump and rack.
Most of the E-class wagons have the hydraulic suspension systems for the rear level control. This fluid is also used as the power steering fluid in this car. The reservoir is on the front right side of the engine if looking in from the front of the car. Note, this takes hydraulic fluid though, and not power steering fluid. The part number for the fluid is: A 001-989-03-10. This is good for 1996 up to 2001. Its called Fuchs, Titan zh 5364 B. Hope this helps!
Yes, if power steering fluid is low, you will get a growl/whine noise from the pump. Make sure where the leak is before replacing parts. Add more power steering fluid (and pleez do not use the stuff with leak-stop in it), try to mop up whatever oil is around the pump, lines, and rack, then drive the car a bit. Let car cool off a bit, then look carefully for where the fluid is coming out. Most Subarus go to their deaths with all original steering components in place, regardless of mileage or age. If they fail, the steering rack is the first thing to spring a leak, then the pump seal, then the hoses (in decreasing order of failure). It is best to use special power steering fluid-- auto trans fluid can be used but is not as slippery, and the pump wears a bit more. That being said, your pump should function for 50 to 100,000 miles with just auto trans fluid in it. Service access to the steering rack and lines is not the best-- make sure you are capable and have the wrenches before tackling a hose replace.
On a 1997 Mercury Sable : For the 3.0 liter VULCAN , V6 engine : The power steering fluid reservoir is near the front of the engine compartment , just to the left of the engine oil dipstick ( when looking into the engine compartment from the front of the vehicle ) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Also , the 3.0 DURATEC has the reservoir near the passenger side strut tower in the engine compartment
Not being a chemist, I'm not sure how the seals will react. I've heard stories about seal swelling problems when adding a wrong fluids to a system. I had tried an experiment, setting seals into different fluids to monitor swelling over a period of a week with no conclusive results. Since the fluids are different, you don't know how the properties aside from swelling will affect the power steering. Such as how well it compresses, viscosity and so on. I would flush the system this week if it was mine. firstname.lastname@example.org
It would be located over on the right (passenger) side of the car, and it will usually be a semi-white reservoir, with a black cap. The top of the cap should even say "power steering" on it. The only other reservoir that would be on that side of the car, would be the window washer fluid, and it would be a much larger reservoir, white, with a bluish tint because of the fluid color. It would be pretty hard to get these two confused.
According to the Kelley Blue Book website, power steering came standard only in the Si Hatchback, LX Sedan, and 4WD Wagon. All other models (Hatchback, DX Hatchback, CRX HF Hatchback, CRX Hatchback, DX Sedan, Wagon, and Wagovan) had it as an option only. In my opinion, the 1989 civic does not need power steering. The tires are narrow, the car is light, and the steering wheel is big enough that the only reason you would want power steering is if your civic had been pimped out with fat tires.
