locating power steering fluid

My daughter has a 1988 Toyota Corolla. We are having trouble locating where the power steering fluid goes in this car. All replies are needed. Thanks Vivian

I don't recall on that particular model, but there are really only 2 possibilities - a reservoir incorporated as part of the pump or a seperate reservoir. Find the power steering pump if there is a cap of some sort that's the reservoir. If not there will be a hose running from the pump to a seperate reservoir normally mounted on the inside of one of the wheel wells under the hood.

Have a look in the owner's manual too, it will have the location and where to put it. If you have to add fluid, you have a leak, so have it checked out.

Also see the autolibrary link in my signature file below as well.

Smile FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THANKS

Thanks so much for the link that you advised me to check-it helped. What I found useful was the picture & Bingo, I found it, the power steering cap. The car was in dire need of the fluid and runs great again. Vivian

Once again, if you had to add fluid, there is a leak and it should be found and rectified.
