Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.

if you've replaced the power steering pump to no avail,then i would look towards a bad power steering rack. the rack could be clogged or just a bad power steering rack,located under the jeep. at the center of the front end under the motor,just to rear of the engine.do you see it leaking at any point? if the pumps good,then i would go to the rack next.however i can suggest this if you choose to.these guys are great about helping people,call 1-865-691-3400 it's just jeeps

Power steering fluid leak


PS fluid could be leaking from the pump, the steering gear or one of the many lines that the fluid runs in. You will have to pinpoint exactly where it's leaking from to have it repaired.

replace the power steering pump, the hoses are an odd size and you have to buy a wrench for it, the transmission you can change the gasket and filter and replace the fluids,, probably the engine is dripping from the rear main bearing seal, this is best left to someone who knows what they are doing.

Leaked out all clutch fluid and clutch is out


you must replace the hydraulic slave cylinder for the clutch to work again, it is not as expensive as you may think but if you have never done this type of work before I would not recomend it unless you acquire a haynes repair manual and the reqiured tools to remove the old one reinstall the new and bleed out the air from the system.

2005 jetta no power steering hard to steer


First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.

The First thing that you need to do is, Get some Degreaser of Some Kind and Clean the Power Steering Pump and Hoses Very Well. Then Start your Car and Move the Steering Wheel all the way from Side to Side and Check the Pump and Hoses. You should be able to Locate the Leak this way. Let me know what You Find out!

Power steering - 1989 toyota celica


looking at the engine from the front of the car the power steering fluid is located on the left hand side and has a black plastic screw-cap about 3inches in diameter open that and pour in fluid. be sure to watch the level markers on the side so you dont overfill. also if you need to keep topping up powersteering fluid you have a leak and should get it fixed asap.
