Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Loud whining noise coming from engine compartment, sounds like it real low on power steering fluid, checked it and is full to normal line. No steering problems, smooth turns, no leaks, just annoying loud whine!

I have noticed that my power steering pump (I'm assuming) is making a loud whining noise when I turn the wheel. The more you turn, the louder it gets. So, when it first became noticeable I thought I'd check the power steering fluid... except the ps reservoir is no where to be found. I looked in my manual as to the location and it says on the passenger side at the back of the engine compartment... I'm no mechanic but there is nothing there. I spotted the coolant and brake fluid reservoirs no problem... I feel like a complete newb for asking but where the hell is the power steering reservoir at? I will be searching for it this weekend when I get some time to look.
