Having problems with your 1999 Buick Regal ?

Where is the power steering fluid located on a 1999 buick regal?

\015 My car is starting to make rubbing noises when I turn. I've been told it may need power steering fluid. I went out and bought the fluid, but now I can't find the resivoir. I think I found it behind the engine towards the middle of the car, but it is too far away to reach it becuase their are 2 hoses above it that is blocking it. Is there any tips you can give me that will keep me from having to take it to the shop?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 10-12-2018

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you have your owner's manual there is a picture on page ;6-29 of your power steering fluid reservoir. If you do not have your owners manual download this manual:
\015\012http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/buick/1999-Buick-Regal.pdf and go to page 269 to see the picture. It will be in front of the engine driven by a belt on the left front side closer to the fender well and radiator. (Left front corner of the engine) NOTE the full mark on the dip stick.

\015\012On another note... with the car NOT RUNNING.... place a finger on the power steering drive belt mid-span between the drive pulleys and check for deflection. If it mores more than 1 inch as you gently depress the belt.;.. then the belt is loose and it will need re-tensioned. Most of the time this is the cause of the noise your hearing.

The power steering resivoir should be on top of one pulley. Just look at the belts and one of the higher pulleys.
