On our '16 Equinox LTZ with the 3.6L LFX engine, does it have hydraulic power steering or electric motor steering?

I am getting different answers. Some say electric, others hydraulic.

Which one is it? Does it depend on which engine is in it?

Thanks in advance.

Boy, I feel like a dumbass.......I just checked in the manual and the 3.6 does have hydraulic power steering. The 2.4 I-4 has electric.

Another quick way would be to look for the power steering pump on the engine as it would be associated with the serpentine belt.

Ive read where owners look... nope none there... as the engine shield will hide the pumps reservoir.
Usually when trying to check PS fluid level.


this is my 2013....
nope- no PS reservoir.....
but wait-- theres more.... to the left of the CHEVY logo-- there is a small logo-- a steering wheel- and a manual and i...... as in steering fluid- read manual.
its under the engine cover.

Nice and clean for a 2013 with 88,000 miles.
Looks like a PF 63 Oil Filter in the second pic.
