I have a 2006 Chev Impala and was told my power steering fluid was low. Can I buy my own fluid and add more myself or does it have to be flushed first and add all new fluid?

You can add it yourself it should be labeled on the cap brake fluid and it should even tell you what kind of brake fluid. then there should be a dip stick on the cap use that to make sure you dont put to much in

Power steering pump is making noise and it's harder to turn than usual. Is the pump bad? It was 24 degrees below zero yesterday and today.

You'd move slow in that kind of temperature too! Did you check the fluid level? Could be belt is not tight enough and sliping on the pully.

These is a sign that the power steering pump is not producing enough power and it requires the rpms to be high to produce enough power. the first thing u should do is to check the level of the power steering fluid and level it out if its low. if the problem persist then the power steering pump or its components like the belts may be faulty and you may need a technician to check it out. thank you!

Do it yourself brake and power steering fluid flushing/change

As you are bleeding the brakes, start w/the furthest line (right rear), have someone add fluid at the same time. Do right rear, left rear, right front, left front until the fluid runs clear. Power steering, disconnect the low pressure hose to drain the canister. Refill with fluid. Repeat procedure, until fluid is clean.

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...)
