Power steering fluid
Checking the power steering fluid
With the vehicle on level ground, check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir periodically. The fluid should be between MAX and MIN marks on the side of the reservoir at the normal temperature.
Before adding power steering fluid, thoroughly clean the area around the reservoir cap to prevent power steering fluid contamination.
If the level is low, add fluid to the MAX level.
Check that the fluid level is in the "HOT" range on the reservoir. If the fluid is cold, check that it is in the "COLD" range.
In the event the power steering system requires frequent addition of fluid, the vehicle should be inspected by an authorized KIA dealer.
вЂў To avoid damage to the power steering pump, do not operate the vehicle for prolonged periods with a low power steering fluid level.
вЂў Never start the engine when the reservoir tank is empty.
вЂў When adding fluid, be careful that dirt does not get into the tank.
вЂў Too little fluid can result in increased steering effort and/or noise from the power steering system.
вЂў The use of the non-specified fluid could reduce the effectiveness of the power steering system and cause damage to it.
Use only the specified power steering
fluid. (Refer to "Recommended lubricants
and capacities" in section 8.)
Checking the power steering
Check the connections for oil leaks, damage and twists in the power steering hose before driving.
