I have the 3.8 Ltr in my 2002, is the power steering system electric ?
I ask because I don't see a belt drive pump and I actually never checked the fluid level. Thanks.

No, its located below the Alternator close to the fire wall and its belt driven.

Correct. On the 3400 it is top and center, on the 3800 it's on the back at the bottom.

Thanks for the info at least I know where to look. First time I guess I did not look hard enough. Is there an actual reservoir tank with the dipstick?
Thanks

Well thanks again, I found it. Hidden by dirt. Level was low, filled to spec.
Car has been trouble free, so I really over looked it !!!

I have no idea why they didn't at least mount a remote reservoir on those, it would sure help.
