Video Description

The video above shows you the steps needed to check the power steering fluid level in your 2000 Oldsmobile Alero. Checking the power steering fluid level in your Alero is relatively easy and should be done once a month or if you are experienced difficulty turning the wheel or steering your Alero. Your Alero should be parked on a level surface and your 3.4 liter engine should be cold to the touch.

If the power steering fluid level in your Alero 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. The power steering fluid reservoir will typically have a symbol of a steering wheel on the cap. Likewise, if your Alero has electric power steering, you may see a steering wheel picture with an explanation point next to it on your dashboard to indicate power steering problems.
