Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
I thought it was the water pump because that also makes loud whinning noises but its not. my belts are fine and the pulley is new, but last week i was all out of power stearing fluid and i checked the other day and its still kind of full. Could it be a slow leak that is causing the noise or the power stearing pump
You most likely have a leak. You shouldn't ever have to add power steering fluid. It is best to get it checked out and repaired while the leak is small. If you wait, the leak will get worse and the oil gets dumped on hoses, belts, wiring harnesses, computer sensors, etc. and can cause severe damage to all of these items, as well as rubber engine mounts and suspension parts. To properly maintain your vehicle, NO fluid leak should EVER be "tolerated". Fluid leaks (of all types) are the leading cause of sending cars to the scrap yard way before their time.
