Chev Impala 2000 V6 3800 series. I can not find the Power Steering reservoir to check it. The book says passenger side rear of the engine. Can you help me.

I found it. Took the back strut off and reached in. Used my wife's turkey baster to fill it. Thank goodness we did not have Turkey for Easter dinner. I am not an engineer, but a really good place for the reservoir would be on the fire wall directly above the pump.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Jeff,

Yes. That's exactly where the Power Steering Reservoir is located. You have to look directly below the Alternator to find it. I didn't believe that any self-respecting auto designer would hide a reservoir. I have to remove the brace from the rear of the engine compartment when I want to check mine, but that's probably because I kind of want to see where I'm putting the fluid and my arms can't get in there without blocking the view. It's almost a feel kind of thing.

Hope this helps. If I were there I'd put my hand on the reservoir for you and it still wouldn't be any easier to find or service.

Good luck,
