You can refill your 1986 Toyota Corolla power steering fluid through the power steering reservoir. The power steering reservoir will be on the left-hand side of the engine.
At or near the power steering pump.
Mk1 Mr2's do not have power steering
Remove cap to power steering reservoir, add fluid, place cap on reservoir when done.
use dextron II or power steering fluid, this age of car was not picky
there's a reservoir tank under the hood the cap says power steering fluid which should be near the brake fluid reservoir
Denise, the fluid goes in the power steering pump resovior at the same place you check the level. Make sure to check the level when the fluid is hot.
Into the power steering unit. Drivers side under hood.
My Haynes book says that all Ford Taurus(es) & Mercury Sable(s) from 1986-1990 use Motorcraft Type F automatic transmission fluid for the power steering fluid. The transmission fluid doubles as the power steering fluid.FYI 1986 and 1987 automatic trans-axle fluid is Motorcraft Type H automatic transmission fluid and 1988 onward is Motorcraft Mercon automatic transmission fluid.The brand doesn't matter so much as the right type of fluid.Hope this helps.
yes because brake fluid wont wear out as much No, brake fluid will destroy the seals in the power steering system.
The power steering lines run between the power steering pump and the rack and pinion.
It should be mounted on the front, driver's side of the engine. It will have a belt and pulley, as well as have it's power steering fluid reservoir attached to it.
Engine coolant fluid? Engine oil? Transmission oil? Brake fluid? Power steering fluid?

Mine uses castrol hyd. mineral oil. I can get a part no. if needed. You won't find it at your local parts store.
Jack vehicle under centre of front cross member just enough to lift tyres off surface. Place a suitable container under the Power Steering Fluid Reservoir. Remove the lower hose (inlet to pump) from the reservoir. Allow fluid to drain into container. Replace hose and fill reservoir with new fluid (Cap is LH thread). Start engine and exercise power steering rack from lock to lock several times to purge old oil back to reservoir. Again remove hose from reservoir and allow to drain. Refill reservoir and again exercise steering. Check fluid level and top up as required.
streering is hard
In the Power Steering Reservoir. It is located on the front of the engine, and to the right. The reservoir is a metal container with a black twist cap on top. Twist this counter clockwise and this will open the top of the reservoir. You can use PS fluid or Mercon/Dexron ATF on the 300SDL. Reassemble in reverse order.
The car will run O.K., but steering will be hard ... especially when you try to park.
