Power steering leak

When looking under the vehicle there is no leakage from the gear box or the power steering pump, where else can this leakage be coming from other than what I have mentioned. I put in fluid in the car every other day and it seems to disappear shortly after. I don't know where else to look.

    The power steering fluid seems to be leaking from underneath. Could it be broken or loose hose?

    Thank you!

My power steering pump pulley is making a terrible noise, it just started sunday and we have just replaced the idler and ac by pass pulley. The power steering pulley noise comes and goes...?

It sounds like the power steering pump itself is bad. You mentioned changing the pulleys. Does the vehicle screech or whine when turning the wheel in a parked position? There is also what is called the power steering gear box. They do sometimes go bad as well. I would also look for any leaks in the power steering hoses.

Ho Thomas, It sounds as if the leakage is when the vehicle is being driven that the leakage occurs. That means it is either from the pump or the box or the pipes going to and from. The leakage happens when the vehicle is being driven If you look at those areas you will see where it is wet with fluid and you'll then identify where the problem is. Regards John

93 crown vic steering gear leaking

The bubbling is just the air being removed by fluid, no problem. the foaming is just the pump action, no problem. As for the leakage, remove the pitman arm and replace the seal on shaft the pitman arm is bolted to. If you still have leakage, replace the seal in the top of the box where the column bolts to the box for it's just running down the box and looking like the leak is from the bottom seal.

The car will not turn left. It's like the power steering has gone out.

You need to replace the Rack and Pinion. It's mounted on the firewall. If by chance you don't have a rack and Pinion gear, not likely but possible, you will need to replace the steering gear box, not the power steering pump but the gear box itself. All of this assumes you have looked under the vehicle and both tie rods are intact.

No power steering when engine is on.

Is there a large puddle under your vehicle? Your car's power steering is powered by power steering fluid and the belt turning this pump. So either you ran out of fluid due to a slow leak, the belt is not turning the pump, or you have a large leak and you lost all of your fluid at one time. It would be a good start by checking the power steering fluid, and the belt.

89 G20 steering gear box question

Best way is to dry off everything in that area and place a piece of cardboard down under it. Either wait a day...or a few hours (depending on how bad it is leaking) or start the vehicle and turn the steering wheel from side to side. This should be able to pinpoint WHERE the leak is originating....then you can fix what is leaking. The steering gear box is actually easy to replace.
