The reservoir for the power steering for this SUV is located in front of the engine, driver side. To access it, simply remove the plastic air tunnel (driver side); You will find it easily.

What can cause Loud whirring sound from power steering on 2006 dodge grand caravan it is same frequency as normal whirring sound only amplified by 1000 times it only happens at freeway speed?
Check the power steering fluid to make sure it is full. If it is full the power steering pump is going bad.
There is not a reservoir for the power steering it is electronic
It is wherever you put it, hopefully in the trunk. The car doesn't come with one because the power steering is all electric. The system was a bit wonky back in 2006, and you might want to check with a GM dealer to find out if they have any free fixes for your problem. There are outfits which sell re-manufactured steering columns for a lower price than a new unit.
I asked my mechanic to flush and change the fluid in my 2006 Ford Escape. The steering was slipping as I turned to the right. I also specified to put Motorcraft Mercon V ATF as my steering fluid. He refused, and put regular fluid in and claiming it was rediculous to use ATF. He then claimed the changing, with the regular steering fluid, did not work. Now he feels, I need a new steering rod… Read More
You pour it in the top of the power steering fluid reservoir. On the 3.8 liter engine, it's located on the left rear of the engine just behind and below the alternator. It's tough to get too and identified on the reservoir cap. You'll need a funnel with a flexible tube to fill it and be careful not to overfill.
There is no pump to replace. Saturn Ions do not use conventional hydraulic power steering. They use a electric power steering system that uses a small electric motor to provide steering assistance.

GM extended the warranty on the power steering of all Saturn Ions, Chevy Cobalts, Chevy HHRs and Pontiac G5s to… Read More

Where is the power steering reservoir on a 2006 Pontiac grand prix gt and is there an easy way to access it?
Most likely on the pump itself. Look down from the passenger side below the alternator near the firewall.
There was actually a recall for the power steering. It is covered by the dealership and should be fixed at no cost to you. The recall said the power steering assist will go out and the power steering light will go on.
As soon as you pop the trunk there will be a round orangeish cap on the reservoir under it right in front of you in the front middle part of the suv. Take the cap off and thats where the fluid goes.
No the power steering is not necessary to run. Steering will be difficult and I wouldn't personally recommend operating the vehicle with out it.
On the 3.8 L engine the reservoir cap is hidden behind/underneath the alternator. If you look behind the alternator, you will see two hoses. If you move hoses out of the way and look straight down, you should see all black cap of the power steering fluid reservoir. It's very easy to over look because there is no markings on the cap.
