It is about a foot below the alternator on the side of the firewall - hard to get to it under the hood without removing some items.

Get your tools ready along with a bottle of the proper power steering fluid (be sure to ask at the auto parts store for the proper one for your specific vehicle) and a long thin funnel.

You need to do the following to get to it;

* - remove both nuts of the stability bar (on the passanger side) and loosen both nuts of the bar (on the driver's side). This bar is about 3 inches thick and about three feet long.

* - remove the nuts holding the reservoir tank (the white plastic tank that holds antifreeze).

* - lift the stability bar on the passanger side to make room to work the reservoir tank out of the way. Set the reservoir tank aside while still connected to the radiator (small hose connects it). Be sure the cap to the reservoir tank is properly closed or a spill may occurr as you lay it aside.

* - voila! look down (flashlight may be needed) about one foot down and you will see (or feel) the cap of the Power Steering pump.

Follow your car manufacturer's instructions at this point.

Reverse the procedure for re-assembly.

Check your hoses from the power steering reservoir for cracks in them and also check the power steering rack on the firewall to see if the rubber seals on the ends of the rack are leaking, maybe the reservoir itself is leaking, have it checked out.

The power steering pump is on the back side of the engine beneath the alternator. You need a mirror and light to get a view of the pump fluid reservoir on top of it. It will be easier to acess with the strut torsion bar off. Need a funnel with hose attached to add fluid.

Depends on the engine. On the 3.1 and 3.4 it is located on the front of the engine, up top, but below the power steering reservoir. The connector for the sensor is located behind the alternator. On the 3800 it is located in the front cover above the crank balancer pulley.
