Noticed this old post, here's what to do-Your leak is most likely a hose or your steering rack. Here's a way to determine where the leak is: to locate it can be tough, because the fluid is blown around as u drive, making it hard to detect where the source is. Jack up the car, place on safety stands so u won't get crushed underneath. Block the tires so the car can't move .Get a bottle of baby powder, shoot it all over the wet spots under the engine compartment to totally absorb the fluid. Start the car and check for leaks, it should be easy to figure out where the fluid is coming from, as the white powder will show the pink fluid drips easily. U might have to apply powder a couple of times to narrow down the exact leak. Let me know how u make out. Curt

Hard steering on cold start

This could be a bad steering rack or power steering pump, the correct way to find out which one is the problem a gauge would need to be hooked to power steering pump and when cold watch the pressure readings and if pressure is low then you replace the pump but if pressure if good then rack has internal leak, compare readings when cold and when it operates good.

I have a 2002 audi a6 3.0L and i recently replaced the power steering pump and it worked great for the first week now it's making a bad whining noise and sometimes the ps goes out and then comes back

These are real bad about having bad pumps, and bad leaking hoses. Make sure you still have good fluid and no leaks. Most likely it just drained again through a bad hose. If good fluid then pump is bad again. If your steering rack was bad it would be leaking real bad as well.

Can you still drive a 99 mercury cougar with a power steering fluid leak

yes but it does determine how bad is the leak? If the leak is bad and you are driving you will still have steering but it could get real hard to turn which might present a accident for you if the fluid is low or empty. If the pump is real low or empty you run the possibilities of burning the pump and would have to be replaced. This leak may be small now but it will get worse,Also it is possible that any oil like substance our vehicles use has the possibilities of igniting into a fire if it makes contact on a heated surface
( EXHAUST SYSTEM ) Get this fixed immediately for your safety and all passengers that you may have !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 1999 ford tartus 3.0 dohc had a powresterring leak so i changed pump,and now i have a leak behind the pump,but it is coming from somewhere behind the pump but not the pump somewhere by the block.can...

One of the hoses leaking. Have a helper hold the steering wheel at the stop with the engine running. If it has a leak, this will make it leak real bad. Then maybe you can find the leak. Also, don't hold it at the stop for more than about 20 sec. without letting off the stop for about 30 sec. or you will overheat the power steering system.

When i turn or when im driving my steering feels different like its heavy. there s also a drip from one of the hoses. the steering isnt real hard to move but when i go to turn its alittle stiff

You could have a problem with your power steering, but some simple things to check is to first see if your power steering pump reservoir is full of fluid. If it is low or empty, your steering will suffer, and worse would be the power steering pump will fail if you run it dry too long. If it is low, fill the reservoir, and wipe down the hoses and pump before you start the vehicle, so you can find out a general area of where the leak is coming from.

Power steering leaks

Caravans all have the same problem with the power steering pump.The pump rusts and starts leaking from a rot hole in which there is no repair.If its a pressure line or a return line, they can be replaced as well as the steering pump.This is not a big job if your famliar with working on cars,if your not, I would recommend going to a garage.

I'm hearing a very loud sound from my 1999 gram am gt also,

If it's a power steering pump low on fluid, it will buzz real loud and worse when you turn the steering wheel left or right.

Fill with power steering fluid. Look in owners manual for type of fluid.

when fluid is added, turn stering wheel full left and full right to purge trapped air.

If this does not fix, you may have a bad pump.

Please rate as fixya if ths solves your issue.

Rpeort back on rsults and good luck.
