you need drain fuel tank.fuel tank probably need to be removed and cleaned out to remove all sediment in bottom of fuel tank.remove each sparks and label them.squirt some clean engine oil down the spark holes into cylinder bores to help lubricate cylinder walls and help seal the piston rings to build up compression.replace fuel filter.best to change spark plugs and wires.check all brake hoses they more likely old cracked. i would change brake fluid bleed out all the old brake fluid out of the brake system.also change power steering fluid and change transmission fluid and filter also change engine oil and oil filter.replace the antifreeze and all the coolant hoses and radiator hose.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace battery and add new full tank of gas.you should be ready go. check ignition timing also.
the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..
depending on how bad the injectors are you can put some Lucas fuel treatment in your gas tank and it will clean them up for you. I use it every other fill up and have had no problems. My avalanche has 88,000 miles and I have never had injector problems. The power steering flush and brake flush you will need a vacuum pump.
Brakes: Locate the bleeder valve on each caliper and hook up your vacuum pump to it and pump it 4-5 times. Make sure your fluid reservoir is full. Put clean fluid in reservoir as needed. Repeat this again. ON bake brakes you will want to give it a few more pumps than the front because they are farther away from the master cylinder. You will need 2 of the small bottles of brake fluid or 1 large bottle. Sorry, I dont remember the oz. on each size.
Power steering: place a hose into the reservoir and pump all fluid out. Turn wheels all the way both ways and repeat twice. You will need several courts of power steering fluid.
What the seal leaks do is soften the rubber, not the best long term solution. Try taking a wrench, the correct size, and snug down all the fittings, not to tight. If it is coming from, as you described, down through the boot it could be a seal. Wipe down the unit well and watch as you have someone tune the wheel back and forth. The engine should be running to build up pressure, so be very careful not to get run over. Apply the emergency brake well and chock the tires.
i would check the power steering fluid level. if thats ok. then i would bet its your power steering pump. other possibilities although rare are : if its power assisted rack and pinion, rack may need to be replaced if its damaged or corroded on the inside. or could be a pinched hose in the power steering hose routing. Wrong fluid in the power steering pump (causing the valves to swell shut) this happens when quick lube places put the wrong fluids in the wrong places. ( i went to one and they put the wrong fluid in my brakes and had to have my master cylinder replaced and brake system flushed... yes they denied it still cost me 350.00) also could be damaged suspension parts causing the resistance to your steering. hope this gives you some leads to find out whats up.
Well, your radiator doesnt have power steering fluid in it!
if its blue or green, its probably antifreeze from a cracked radiator.
if its red, it could be TQF or what ever audi uses.
Has the steering failed?
Is it still leaking?
Either way, its the garage you need to call for a fix!
this sounds like a hydraulic power steering hose straight too power steering and power steering gear box this is has a leak in it these hoses need to be replaced
now with the other problems sounds just like they need to have new hoses ran threw them too the bar if im hearing this correctly is water flow jacket like radiator hoses these hoses need to be replaced during a radiator hose replacement
if you could send me pictures of what your explaining i might be able to give you better detail of whats going on you can send pics too firstname.lastname@example.org
