Normally if dont see it while its running and your underneath or looking under the truck, its probably only occurring when the system which could me a seal at the pump. Have you tried having someone turn the wheel hard left and hard right while you are looking for the leak?

Has the steering gone heavy? if the reservoir is empty and you top it up then it must have a substantial leak.If you cant see any fluid on the floor then it maybe that the leak is internal in the power steering rack.

My steering has gone hard only when turning there was a sudden hissing noise what could this be hope you can help dum blonde

are you leaking power steering fluid? is there any left in the car? normally all you have for power steering is a pump with fluid and an assist ram, if you hear hissing my guess would be that you blew the High end hose in the system, if it happened while driving with little turning such as freeway driving, you wouldn't notice until you got off and were driving slower and making more turns,, check your fluid, if its empty filling it won't do much good until the hose is replaced, but don't drive to many miles as it will end up burning out the pump

hi sorry i cant help with the warranty, but it sounds like the seals or a seal has gone on the rack, have a look under the vehicle for any fluid residue, sometimes it takes allot to fill the powe stearing, best way to do it is fill the resivior up while motor is running and trun full lock one way then back the other , keep doing this untill you get it back, also if you cant see under the vehicle get a large peice of cardboard place it on the floor where you normally park, the turn the wheel a few times, this way it will tell tale if you have a leak, although if the fluid was empty you possibly do have one but try it anyway, just another tip, you can actually buy a special fluid that will reviterlise the seals in the rack it might be worth looking into that first before you replace it, also,have a look at the connections where the fluid goes into, they might just be loose and need nipping up again hope that will help

check to see if you have power steering fluid. if your low fill it up. (most cases thats all it is) check around for any leaks or parts to the power steering unit for and damage (hoses, pump, rer, rack and pinion, any seals or such. you might have a leak somewhere. when your looking for leaks fill the res up with power steering fluid. turn the car on. and have someone turn the wheel so get the fluid to build up pressure in the system.

Power steering fluid leaking

It all depends on where the fluid is coming from. It could be a ruptured pressure hose, or a seal in the power steering pump. The 2 "dangers " are NO POWER STEERING and burning out the pump with no fluid. A short drive for repairs using " ARMSTRONG " will probably do no harm. Hope this helps

Power stering

I have a leak in my Power Steering fluid as well in my 1990 Toyota Celica, how do I identify where the leak is? - It's a fast leak, I filled it up less than 24 hours ago and it's almost completely empty, also when I make turns it makes an odd sound, which I assume is because of the leak... help please!!
