SOURCE: power steering pump

There is a problem here which is not for the novice repair man. Get to a mechanic and sort this. You risk loosing power steering at speed, for say on the motorway and that could possibly kill you. Your first try failed - leave it to the pros!

This switch simply sends a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) on sensing high pressure in the system. If it looks like the switch is leaking, it probably is - replace the switch.

You need to raise the car, put jack stands underneath for safety and spray some type of degreaser to clean off the oil on the hoses, pump, frame, etc., then wash off with a hose or pressure washer (best). Let everything dry and then have another person crank up the engine while you are underneath looking at pump and hose (be sure your jack stands are securely holding up the car before climbing underneath). If you're losing a lot of fluid each day you should easily be able to see your leak at the pump or hose connections. If it's gotten steadily worse, it probably is the pump seals getting worse.

Power steering pump leak


Usually it is the high pressure line. They have compressed fittings, and over time they begin to leak, due to the high pressure.
