Checking, inspecting and topping of the power steering (PS) fluid on a 1997 Buick Regal is a routine and simple procedure. The engine should be shut off and the vehicle parked in a safe location. Care should be exercised if the engine is hot. The PS cap can be located under the hood with the symbol of a steering wheel on it. The cap is also the dip stick of level. Once the level is determined top off fluid can be added. If fluid needs to be constantly added it is an indication of a leak and service will needed.
