Windshield Washer Fluid
When you need windshield washer fluid, be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions before use. If you will be operating your vehicle in an area where the temperature may fall below freezing, use a fluid that has sufficient protection against freezing. See “Engine Compartment Overview” in the Index for reservoir location.

Adding Washer Fluid
If the windshield washer fluid level in your vehicle is low, the LOW WASHER FLUID warning light, or the light with the washer fluid symbol, located on the instrument panel, will come on. You will need to add fluid soon.

The windshield washer fluid reservoir is located in the engine compartment on the passenger’s side of the vehicle, near the diagonal cross brace. Open the cap with the washer symbol on it. Add washer fluid until the tank is full.

When to Check Power Steering Fluid
It is not necessary to regularly check power steering fluid unless you suspect there is a leak in the system or you hear an unusual noise. A fluid loss in this system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired. See “Engine Compartment Overview” in the Index for reservoir location.

How to Check Power Steering Fluid
Turn the key off, let the engine compartment cool down, wipe the cap and the top of the reservoir clean, then unscrew the cap and wipe the dipstick with a clean rag. Replace the cap and completely tighten it. Then remove the cap again and look at the fluid level on the dipstick.

The level should be at the the cross-hatched area. If necessary, add only enough fluid to bring the level up to the mark.

Cooling System Pressure Cap
The cooling system pressure cap is located on the surge tank. See “Engine Compartment Overview” in the Index for more information on location.
