back by the passenger side firewall, hidden under the hoses, I had to climb under the car and follow the steering to find it, no mechanic ever could as I am good but that one even got me. If you still have problems let me know and I send a picture, but it's there and it's hard to get the cap past the hoses without dropping it, really tight. passenger side firewall

I might be wrong I just looked at what car your talking about and I'd have to check but go look anyhow as it may be the same as the GS

If it's not in plain site, then it's where I said it is, is this cars engine a 3100 or 3800 either way, if you can't just see it like it shows in the Haynes manual which is totally wrong for the GS Regal then it has to be back by the fire wall or in plain site. And if that was the case meaning plain site, you wouldn't be asking as you can't miss the thing on a regular Regal

Ok, checked my old book and it says The power steering fluid reservoir is located near the front of the engine, so like I said if it's not in plain site, look back where is said, passenger firewall side of the engine, hidden under the hoses and you need to check it while it's hot, so be careful, it's tight.

is this your engine, doubtful as it's probably the 3100

Yes. That's my engine. Is this a job for a mechanic or can I check it myself?
