thank u. i opened the hood sound was coming from the engine. is this where the fuild is stored. i have about 46000 miles on my car is there any maintance tips that i need to know other than the fluid

hi .....yes the fluid needs to go in the reservoir...you need to take it to a mechanic to check for a leak....because if it is low it went somewhere ...most auto parts stores will add the fluid for free as long as you buy it there...the only other maintanice you should do at this time is check the drive belt/belts...keep the oil changed regularly

have a happy new year
