Too much power steering fluid


#1

Can too much power steering fluid be bad? I was adding some yesterday, and went over the “max” line. I’ve done some searching, and seems like most people say it is harmless. Just wanted to get your input.


#2

The only problem with overfilling the power steering fluid reservoir is that when the fluid heats up the excess fluid will overflow out of the vent hole and make a mess whereever it ends up.

There’s a simple solution. For $1 you can get a turkey baster and lower the level.


#4

No problem with an excess since it merely fills a reservoir. As others have said, remove some excess fluid, perhaps with a bent spoon, to avoid overflow.
