Power steering fluid bubbles up thru the resevoir

Hello, If it is overflowing fluid you have a problem in the pump or reservoir drain(supply) line. If there appears to be air bubbles in the reservoir, look at the supply line that comes off of the bottom of the reservoir.

The supply line goes to the front of the truck (You did not indicate vehicle) and there usually is a small fluid cooler that it attaches to. The supply line itself has both metal and rubber sections and where the supply line is clipped to the frame with plastic clips it corrodes. The line has a habit of rusting in this fixture and when a small hole is formed, it will draw in air. Often the fluid will leak against the frame and be concealed and blown off from the wind passing under the vehicle when driving.

The fluid flows in a loop, and if the fluid is collecting on top by the reservoir, it is not draining and flowing fast enough to clear the reservoir. You could also be overfilled and as the fluid heats up it will expand. Check your fluid levels.

I hope my solution is very helpful and if you need Model specific info, please include which Model you have.

My 95 chevy s10 pickup truck stop moving after 1/2 mile, after 5 minutes, it moves again, what causes the transmission to do this?

Front transmission pump.For a Chevy S10 its located behind the torque convertor,This pump supplies the torque convertor and it service as a pressure supply system, Just because the pump is in the immediate area it does wear out and develops gaps and is unable to supply transmission fluid to the system. When the transmission warms up the fluid thins out.Sitting for 5 minutes allow the fluid to cool just enough to run again
P.sthis remind me of what happen to me I stuck on the side of the road ,half mile and took 2 hours to drive back

Lost all power steering fluid and brakes

Hi Salmancasmi,
On vehicles with a hydraulic booster you will find that the power steering pump supplies fluid through bot the steering gear box and the hydraulic booster.
Just a visual inspection of the system should point you to the part that failed, most likely a hose. These can be obtained through your local parts store or dealership.
Locate and replace the failed part, refill the reservoir with power steering fluid. With the front of the truck on jack stands, start the truck and turn the steering wheel from full left to full right several times while pumping the brakes. This will remove the air from the system. Recheck for leaks and fluid level and you'll be on your way.
Hope that helps, good luck.
