Hyundai 2001 sonata power steering fluid leak


The power steering fluid (which is the same color as the auto transmissioin fluid)...can come from 1 of 4 places, the power steering reservoir, power steering pump, power steering rack, or the connection lines........

Where it is coming from will depend whereabouts it is leaking, if it is more towards the front of the car (engine), power steering poump would be the likely option.......however if it is more under the driver/passenger area under the car, this would be more likely be the rack...

I would suggest washing the vehilce down with high pressure wash, inlcuding underbody and engine area......let dry, take for a drive (15-20 minutes), then leaving on reasonably clean driveway/roadway...and see where it is leaking from...what area...then get a torch and trace to where it maybe coming from

Power steering pump on 2001 land rover disco ii makes a laboring noise when I turn the wheel as well as there is a leak somewhere in the system. I had the hoses replaced a month ago, but there is still a...


The noise is because the oil level is low and the pump is reverburating. Look at the bottom of the steering box, its usually the lower oil seal that leaks. If it is the steering box , then i suggest you take it to a mechanic to replace the seal, because to remove the drag link arm is very difficult without proper pullers.

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.

1998 volvo s 70 power steering makes noise -fluid ok--need help please


Your noise is either from old age of the pump or you have an air leak in the system somewhere. Carefully check the lines, pump, rack & pinion and hoses on the power steering system for signs of damp/wetness. If there are no visible leaks, then the problem will be worn bearings in the pump itself.

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.

Leaking radiator fluid but not from rad., pink fluid, no hose leaks


A fluid leak that is pink and/or red colored is usually either power steering fluid or transmission fluid. I recommend checking both. You can check the power steering fluid when the car is off. However, the transmission fluid should be checked with the engine warm and idling in neutral. Have someone else step on the brake or use the parking brake and block the wheels while you're measuring the transmission fluid level.

Steering issues


Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.

The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.
