Video Description

Watch the video above to see how to fix minor power steering fluid leaks in your 1999 Cadillac Catera. The power steering fluid helps make your Catera easier to turn, especially at lower speeds. If you aren't sure what type of fluid is leaking from your car, check our What is Leaking? video to help determine the type of fluid leaking from your Catera. Power steering fluid is generally clear, pink or red and is oily to the touch. If the steering wheel is difficult to turn or you noticed power steering fluid leaking from your Catera, use the video above to see where the power steering fluid reservoir in your 1999 Catera is located and how to fix minor power steering fluid leaks.

A small power steering fluid leak can make your Catera difficult to turn. When you check your power steering fluid level, make sure your Catera is parked on a level surface with the 3.0 liter engine turned off. We recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves when dealing with any engine fluids.
