Power steering leak

I took my nissan to a nissan dealer. They told me there was a leak in the power steering line. No mention of what part was leaking.
Took the car to Pep Boys. They told me the crank seal. Is the crank seal a part of the power steering?

The Crank Seal is Part of the Motor Not the Power Steering Pump. You can take your Truck to the Car wash and Clean the Motor Really well While RUNNING. And then just Drive home. You will be able to see exactly where the Leak is Coming From. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire


Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

My Nissan Maxima '92 leaks power steering fluid. I had someone look at it but they couldn't find the leak. I just put in new fluid every few weeks and it works fine but if there is an easy fix I would like...


if there is a leaking seal in the power steering rack and pinion or in the hydraulic pump, a power steering stop leak may swell the seal enough to stop the leak. if there is still a leak, it is likely a damaged / corroded line or fluid cooler. next time you need to top up your fluid, i recommend Lucas brand power steering stop leak / treatment. after a couple top ups it will stop the leak it if is a rubber seal problem. good luck!

Power steering fluid leaks


if you take and pressure wash the motor capartment out at a car wash and then have a friend turn your steering wheel back and forth while you look ant the hoses you should see if the hoses have a small leak now never use your hand to check for a leak becuse the power steering systme is a hydralic system and if there is a pin hole and your hand is there the fluid can actually pierce the skin and rip off flesh but you should be able to see the leak just dont grab the hoses while the car is running.
hope this is usefull for you. and please rate my solutions
thank you

sometimes adding brake fluid to the power steering pump will stop the leak if its not to bad.you may have to keep adding as it leaks down untill you use about a bottle ,before it stops the leak.
