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.

My power steering pump resevoir is leaking any ideas.

Is it leaking out of the reservoir itself,or is it leaking out f the reservoir cap? If the power steering is overfilled, it will leak out the vents in the cap when the fluid gets hot. It may also be a bad seal on the cap. Replace the cap if the seals are bad. If the reservoir itself is leaking, the only option is to replace the reservoir.

Brake fluid resivoir emptied out in 2 days and all calipers and drums are good. Is the resivoir bad or the master cylinder bad?

if there is no leaks that you can find, then the master cylinder must be leaking into the power brake booster. replace the master cylinder

The steering is getting really hard to steer..

first pop ur hood
then look towards the back of the motor of your car
u will see a big cylinder shaped booster with a resivoir coming out of it.
this is your brake booster and master cylinder these fluid levels mean nothing as far as your problem is concerned.
keep looking and you will find another small resivoir with a cap on it.
this is your power steering fluid.
take the cap off and check to see how full it is.
you most likely have a leak in either a power steering line or your power steering pump is faulty and leaking. this will cause hard steering if youre fluid levels are insufficient.
hope this helps you with your problem.

Ford mondeo 1.8 td diesel, the problem is the power steering fluid is leaking, when i check it look like it was coming from the middle part of the can i fix it and what parts do i need to get...

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?
