Power steering fluid


The resevoir has a min & max on it. The resevoir cap has a dipstick attached to it with min and max marks. The mins & maxs dont match. which levels should i follow, resevoir or dipstick.

Is the dipstick screwed in, or do you rest the threads on the top of the reservoir?

If in doubt, I'd go with the reservoir.. as the lid or the dipstick might be a later add-on from a different model for all you know..

Yeah, my reservoir has no dipstick attached to the lid. I refer to the yellow sticker/band with the min/max markings.

Mine was low the other week (very slow leak in the rack but stop-leak has virtually eliminated it). Was making a loud racket when turning at slow speeds, which is how I realised.
