Power steering fluid - level

Updated 7/23/2018

Cars with 4-cyl. engine do not have power steering fluid. For cars with another engine, the level of the power steering fluid must be between the reservoir's MIN and MAX marks. The fluid does not need to be changed.

Important

Keep the area around the power steering fluid reservoir clean when checking. The cover must not be opened.

Check the level frequently. The fluid does not require changing. The level must be between the MIN and MAX marks.

Warning

If there is a fault in the power steering system or if the engine is switched off and the car has to be towed, the steering is much heavier than normal. Read about what applies for towing.
