Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6
Just had the steering U -Joint and Lower Control Arms replaced and steering is nice and smooth now but lately I am seeing drops of ATF on ground. Where would I start to see where the leak is? Hoses? Pump? What do you think is more likely? Is this a repair that I could do - fairly compentant with tools and following instructions :)
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Tommyhoe, you are wrong. the ford dealer and ford manual both say to use Mercon V ATF for the power steering.

First of all, you should not have any so called ATF fluid coming fron the power steering components.Many years ago, you could use this fluid instead of power steering fluid used these days, which contain special additives to keep the seals and valve lubricated without drying them out. If you have put ATF fluid in a vehicle dated after 1985, you have basically posioned the system and will always leak from somewhere unless you replace the entire system.
