How do I replace to power steering fluid in a 2004 Saturn Vue AWD?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Dear Dawn, I’m wondering why you need to replace your power steering fluid. Normally you never have to replace it unless it leaks out. If you have a leak, you should take it to a trained mechanic to find out where it is leaking from and repair what is wrong. Best of Luck, Amy Mattinat

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Dawn, This service should be done at a dealership. Because this system is under pressure and required a knowledge of how to safely reduce this pressure, a trained technician is the best person for the job. They also have equipment that will do the job quickly and efficiently. Lori

Patty Streeter,  at The steering system is electric on this vehicle so there is no fluid. The unit is inside the vehicle by the drivers knees and doesn't need any fluid or maintenance. Any problems will usually turn on the check engine light.
