My 1998 gmc sonoma pick-up truck leaks power steering fluid, then the steering squeals and is hard to turn, iwhen i replace the fluid it works fine, until the fluid leaks out again. is that a broken/worn...


It could very well be the seal. You need to try to see if you can pinpoint the leak. Being that it is a 98, I would say the seal is wore. I had the same problem in a S-10 I had. Went to the junk yard and got the whole piece. They are not that hard to change. It could be the hose leaking, so try to retrace everything. More then likely, a seal goes before the hose. Check all endings. If you have anymore questions, feel free to contact us. We are here to help in anyway we can. Thank you very much for choosing FixYa.

If the transmission is leaking, it generally requires disassembly and replacement of the seal. I have never heard of using brake fluid to swell the seal, and wouldn't know how to get to the seal with that chemical.

Good luck on this repair.
