Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Power steering leak

I need some help with a power steering problem. My 2004 PT Cruiser only leaks power steering fluid out while driving it. I have made sure of this, there are no spots where I park it at night. I know there was a recall on the hose and according to my dealership they fixed it. I do not recall them doing so. I need help finding out exactly where it would be leaking at now, so I don't have to pay the dealership to fix it.

Start the engine and allow it to idle,turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times to boost fluid pressure. then look under engine compartment you should see the leak also check the fluid reservoir for sign of foaming. This will indicate a leak check hoses around the pump area ect. hope this help

Power steering leak

Replace the pump. The pressure regulating valve must be stuck and causing this leak. Either that or you are just unlucky and getting some really crappy hoses.

Check the power steering for low fluid in the power steering fluid reservoir on the front of the engine. Refer to your owners manual for illustration and location. If the level is low you have a leak, look for a red fluid on the ground under the car when parked.

Power steering went out on my 2002 pt cruiser

Please check the TYRE pressure if this seems OK then you must hoist the car and check the steering with the wheels up . If this is not found to be free the power steering section must be checked in detail starting from the drive, the hydraulics to the ball joint links. Loss of fluid or fault in pump cannot be ruled out. check the drive belt which if failed will be indicated.

Transmission is leaking fluid. 2004 PT Cruiser

Can not solve that type of issue without seeing vehicle.
Is it common for a trans happens ,and you need to attempt to properly repair. Some leaks are not always fixable with trans in vehicle.
Don't drive it, with a situation where your always adding fluid,you'll forget and burn up the trans.
