    Default How to check Power Steering Fluid level?!?!

    Hi all,
    I have a Vectra C CDTI 150 and it develops slightly stiff power steering after about 10mins of driving. I've located the pump/bottle just behind the engine near the bulkhead and think the fluid is low. When you take the top off basically its just a stick on the inside of the cap one think bit then it goes thin at the end. Is this the difference between max and min as I can't figure out if it is? Bascially my level just touches the thinnest part at the bottom so I'm guessing it's low. Can anyone confirm thats how you read it? A max and min would have been nice!! <hehe>.

    Cheers!

    It was at the right level as I got it checked by Vauxhall. Had so many issues with this steering issue I ended up selling the car as Vauxhall were useless and wanted stupid money to so say fix it. Best thing I ever did was sell it. Worst car I've ever owned. Hope yours is ok though. Hope you don't ever need a new pump. That's all I can say. .
