2005 Impala Power Steering Fluid Leak

If you recently added power steering fluid, this is a very common issue that many people come across. Power steering fluid is very commonly over filled. When the fluid reservoir is overfilled, it will flow right out over the top of the reservoir when you make a full turn either right or left. When this occurs, it gets onto your belt {s} and is then transferred all over the engine vie the belt and the air being blown back over your engine by your fan. If it is not an overfilling issue, then you have either a loose pressure line, a ruptured pressure line, a bad crimp on a pressure line or your fluid reservoir O-ring and body have somehow become separated. Pressure lines are typically easy to replace. If it is the pump and fluid reservoir, then unless you have experience at working on automobiles, I would suggest taking it to your mechanic.

Oops, sorry about that.....

The power steering fluid reservoir is located just behind the drivers (LHD) headlight, just forward of the washer fluid reservoir.

The reservoir has a green cap on it and a plastic trim panel to conceal the sides, it is circled here:

2005 chevy impala power steering leak problem

What you hae to do is check if the reservoir is leaking first if okthen it is either the piping or the steering pump. It is a process of elimination, you may need to clean the area first to discover where the leak is or work back from the point it is leaking on the belt. Until you identify where the leak is coming from it will be dificult to repair unless you just start to replace the pump and reservoir any way.

Easiest way to add power stearing fluid to a 2001 chevy impala v6 ??

Locate the cap to the power steering fluid reservoir
bc25493.jpg Remove cap and fill reservoir with GM Power Steering Fluid (P/N 89021184) or any fluid a knowledgeable parts department says is compatible. It may not look like much but there are a few dozen steering fluids available out there and lots of systems aren't compatible with many of them (wrong fluid will disintegrate seals, pumps, etc...)
