Video Description

The video above shows you the steps needed to check the power steering fluid level in your 2008 Mazda 3. Checking the power steering fluid level in your 3 is relatively easy and should be done once a month or if you are experienced difficulty turning the wheel or steering your 3. Your 3 should be parked on a level surface and your 2.3 liter engine should be cold to the touch.

If the power steering fluid level in your 3 is low, fill it up to the maximum line with power steering fluid and check it again in a week to determine if you have a leak.
