Has anybody found the power steering fluid dipstick? I like to check some things myself and found everything except power steering. I used to be a full time mechanic at a dealership years ago so i do like to do some things myself, it is much harder these days though.

power steering sump is located under the engine "beauty" cover. Remove the engine oil cap and just snap off the cover by pulling up (start at a corner). You'll see the power steering sump on the lh side of the engine. Cover just snaps back on...you'll see where the snap locations are and you just need to push it or apply pressure using the palm of your hand to reinstall. Don't forget to put the engine oil cap back on!!

Thats good to know where it is.

I had a whine/ growling noise yesterday & wanted to check the fluid.

It sounded like the ford P/S growl kind of noise.
