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.
in the top of the power steering reservoir on the passenger side of the engine.
It is serviced in the power steering reservior.jd
on the front of the engine and it is run by the serpentine belt.
The power steering reservoir is located on the passenger side rear of the Engine compartment underneath and behind the alternator. . It is a very tight fit.
where do i put the fluid Its under alternator.
The Power Steering unit is located under the alt. Make sure the engine is cold. Very tight area. I connected a rubber hose to the bottom of my funnel.
Remove cap to power steering reservoir, add fluid, place cap on reservoir when done.
right behind and below the power steering pump on the block.
its located behind the power steering pump...you would have to remove the power steering pump to access it
located on passenger side in back of motor
on the passenger side of the car and it's driven by the serpentine belt.
On the 2004 Monte Carlo you may want to check with the dealer but I believe that this car was equipped with electronic steering assist and does not have a belt driven pump
ya put a 350 in it
My brothers 2003 Monte Carlo had this problem, was a plugged catalytic converter.
This 1 was tricky. The reservoir is in the back part over the engine. You have to lean over your car (on the engine) to find it. Remove the cap and use a funnel or try to pour it in.
it controls all lights, guages, fuel pump, power breakes, anything power,............... power steering ect
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.
Replace o ring between tank and pump clips slide off tank
Start by removing the lines, drain the fluids, then remove the pump pulley. After that, remove the mounting bolts.
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.
Above the power steering pump right next to the fire wall. Very hard to find unless you know where to look. Just look behind the engine. It's closer to the passenger's side. It's way down there so look hard.
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.
If the Impala is the same as my 2001 Monte Carlo with a 3.8 L engine, the resivoir is on the pass. side way down low in back of engine compartment. You need a bright light to see it and it is very hard to get at!
