Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
After I realized my mistake, I put power sdteering fluid in the reservoir to overflowing to hopefully flush most of the brake fluid out. I dont know if that helped.
Do not start it brake fluid in the power steering. Will destroy the seal in the whole unit if you have started it you will need to take the return line off at the pump and flush it asap you can use trans fluid it has cleaner in it

Try a can of "Bars' Leak" for power steering leaks 1st available at your local auto parts store. It's cheap and can't hurt but may fix your problem!

The problem is your intermediate steering shaft. It runs from the bottom of your steering column to the steering gearbox. While you are in the shop, though, now may be a good time to replace both the steering gear box and pump as a precautionary maintenance measure. It truly isn't necessary if you aren't having issues, but sometimes replacing one old part will open up the blinds to see another worn out part that needs replaced. It's cheaper to have the mechanic replace them while they have everything apart, than to have them take it apart on 3 separate occasions.

SOURCE: where to put brake fluid
when you open the hood it will be on your right side near the windshield. you will need a long funnel because of the way it is tucked under the wiper blades. If you have to add brake fluid then you either have a leak or your brakes are so low that the fluid has dropped enough to make the light come on the dashboard. Have it checked out by an experienced person.

the bubbles are just air in the system, it will eventualy go away. are you sure the leak is from the pump or is it just comming out the cap because of the air. also did you chk. the pressure line? that maybe where your leak is. unless you got a crack in the resavor, its most likely the pressure line. there is a pressure line and a return line.
