It could be leaking inside the dust boot on the steering rack. if thats it ...it will eventually start leaking from the boots after they fill up. You could have a small leak from one of the lines. Good Luck

Power steering not working, and put power steering fluid in car


Lets use common sense here

It leaks,you stop using the car & repair the leak

Most likely the steering rack is worn & needs to be replaced

That's what happens when you don't flush the fluid every
3 years or it leaks & runs low

Sounds like you have a power steering leak. It shouldn't be to hard to inspect all the lines, P/S pump, and rack both from above and under the car to see where the leak is coming from.

Power steering is noisy


Often, noise in the power steering is the result of air trapped in the system. It can also come from contaminated or worn out fluid. If the fluid level in the power steering reservoir is low, the pump will tend to whine and/or chatter. First, check the fluid level. If it is low, there is a leak somewhere. Keep the fluid level up if you must drive it, or the power steering pump will be destroyed. Once you have determined there are no leaks, or repaired any leaks you have have found, the best solution is to remove as much fluid from the system as possible, and then refill it with fresh, clean fluid. There is a product called Lucas power steering stop leak (or somesuch) which is excellent for quieting power steering components and extending their life. Use 1/2qt to 1 qt of regular fluid first, and then the whole bottle of Lucas when refilling. Top off with regular fluid as needed. Be sure to check the fluid level again after letting the engine idle and turning the wheels back and forth several times, as some air will be purged from the system and the level may go down substantially.

My weels are hard to turn is it the pump?


check your power steering fluid level. If it's low, or overfilled, get it to the right level. If it's at the right level, it's likely that you may need a new power steering pump
