Dynasty Fluid Reservoir

There is a large rectangular metal box fluid reservoir at the passenger side of the engine compartment that I canít identify. Fluid is above the hose in and out but not by much.
What fluid reservoir it it. Lower right in photo.

My guess would be hydraulic reservoir for steering and side radiator fan drive.

Like he said, but I'm not guessing, �� it's the hydraulic resivoir. It can have atf, hydraulic oil or engine oil in it. Hydraulic oil is clearer than engine oil, trans is red. Dont dare mix them.

Can you over fill your hydraulic leveling jacks with fluid and will it do any harm?

Well, when all 4 jacks are retracted, if there is no room left for the ATF to go, it has to come out somewhere .

BTW.... The hyd reservoir in the OP's picture, doesn't supply the leveling jacks.

Side note a lot of hyd jack systems. The jack down alarm is based on a level switch in reservoir .One jack down 6" should set off alarm, telling you not to drive. Too full and no alarm jacks down equal to one jack down 6" ...but consult owners manual not all are same.

Your leveling jacks are a completely different system. That reservoir pump system is probably up front under and behind your entry steps. The reservoir in question is dedicated to the power steering and cooling fan hydraulic motor. DEX III
