Power steering leakin , but dont know where its coming from , and its whining too . but the it stops whining after i drive it for awhile , what should i do....


Whining should be low power sterring fluid.
Check the power steering dipstick and keep it in the range.
If you have no power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid ( Dexron) works fine.
Leaks best found with a flashlight, you should not need the engine running, but you will need to get under the car, and you may need to push or bend some of the plastic sheilds out of the way to look.
Most often it is a hose, high or low pressure hose to the power steering pump that leaks.
High pressure hose has fittings, low pressure hose may have a hose clamp.

This is either the sensor or an open/shorted circuit leading to the sensor, you need to use a dvom to check it or replace the sensor and atleast eliminate that fault

Check engine light came on. Autozone said the


The power steering pressure sensor tells the computer when the power steering is being used. The sensor has probably gone bad and is sending incorrect info to the computer. The sensor is usually on or around the power steering pump or steering box.

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.

I dont know where it is


it is located behind the power steering pump. You need to remove the power steering pump to get to it which requires removing the engine mount next to it to get the bottom bolt out of the power steering pump. The sensor is directly behind the power steering pump. You can follow the cable that goes behind the pump. It is the only one there.

Where is the power steering container located.


The power steering pump is a CB-series, vane-type positive displacement pump with an integral fluid reservoir. A pressure relief valve limits maximum system pressure, and is located inside the flow control valve in the pump housing; the relief valve is not serviced separately. The power steering pump is driven by the engine via an automatically tensioned drive belt.
Just Fallow the Belt and Look for the ONLY Component that Has A Cap on it
