Correct power steering fluid levels help make your Freelander easier to turn, especially at lower speeds. Watch our What is Leaking? video to help determine the type of fluid leaking from your Freelander if you are unsure. Power steering fluid is typically clear, pink or red in color and is oily to the touch.

A small power steering fluid leak can make your Freelander hard to turn. When you check your power steering fluid level, make sure your Freelander is parked on a level surface with the 1.8 liter engine turned off in order to get an accurate reading. We recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves when dealing with any engine fluids, including power steering fluid.
