Hi Allie,<br> There is no power steering fluid dipstick on these cars. You just remove the lid of the reservoir with the wing nut and make sure that the fluid leveel is up to the washer on the center shaft. The knob that you refer to is probably a level control for your hydraulic suspension system. This station wagon has hydraulic rear shock absorbers that can be adjusted to compensate for a heavy load.<br> <br> Best Regards,<br> Paul

I actually think the round knob on the left is to turn off the parking brake.
