With the engine switched off. Go under the car and clean of all the fluid you find. Now start the car and turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock. Switch off the engine and go under the car and you should see the area of the fluid leek. With this information you can then decide how to tackle the repair.

Power steering fluid leaked out

PAS fluid is very searching so it is unwise to make assumptions about where a leak is coming from.

I suggest you wipe or wash the area of suspected leak, add some fluid and watch while it appears, asking an assistant to start the engine/work the steering.

Kia Sedona hard to turn (2006)

If your system has leaked fluid out when you've topped it back up it could have caused an airlock in the system this can usually be rectified by turning the steering wheel from lock to lock several times whilst the vehicle is stationary this usually pushes the air out but keep checking the fluid bottle as the level will drop whilst its getting rid of any air !
Hope this helps Nick

Have a look at the power steering fluid cooler it is just in front of the radiator behind the front bumper. The coolers corrode and leak. Also the seals can go, check for fluid leaking out of the boots at the track rods. Try this procedure :--- 1)Trace the source of the leak. Use a mirror on an extended handle to follow the puddle of fluid on your garage floor to the power steering system. Look on the hoses and gaskets to find from where the fluid could be leaking. 2) Add power steering stop leak additive to your power steering fluid. Lucas Power Steering Stop Additive is 100 percent guaranteed to stop seal leaks. In older cars, the seals shrink, causing leaks. The stop leak makes the seals swell to their original size. 3) Use gasket sealant if the gaskets are old and leaking. Sealant, such as Permatex, is resistant to engine fluids, and will help repair a leaky gasket. 4) Replace the gasket, if the gasket sealant does not work. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

My power steering has been leaking on the steering box

Okay, so you have either a pressure line that is leaking, or a bad pump, bad seal, or bad fluid cannister to pump seal. Does it make any noise when turning the wheels? And have you checked and had to fill the resivoir with additional fluid from time to time? The fluid can be washed off the housing, frame rails, driveway, ect, with degreaser and strong water pressure. But, you need to check the cause of the leaking. Overfill? Leaking pressure hose? (there are two) Leaking resivoir to pump? Loose cap?
