The power steering fluid unit is sealed. Can not check fluid level.

Hey fixitmr found some info that could help hidme with his possibly low power steering fluid.I also posted a diagram showing where the power steering pump on a 3.8L engine sound's like that's the one he has and that's why he thinks it's sealed.
Because the power steering reservoir on 3800 V6-equipped vehicles is located behind and below the rear cylinder head, the fluid level may not be getting checked and/or topped off similar to other vehicles which have a reservoir that is located on the upper portion of the engine. This condition could be more prevalent with vehicles serviced at non-GM dealerships.
