Where is the powering steering compartment on a 1997 Pontiac GrandPrix?
It is under the alternator on the back of the engine. Just follow the belt down from the back of the alternator.
Don't be insulted by this, but I assume you know the engine is in the back, where most cars have a trunk, so it is opened either with the same key that unlocks the doors or with the button on the dash, to the right of the steering wheel near the top, left area of the part where the radio is located. If you thought the engine was in the front of the car, that…
Its a good chance that it doesnt have a power steering reservoir. Around 04 or so GM started using an electric power steering pump. It has pretty much become standard equipment on GM and a lot of Fords now There is a reservoir, its behind the alternator and low in the engine compartment ,it looks like its pretty hard to get to, but it can be seen.
