SOURCE: Suddenly leaking power steering fluid, reservoir empty

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

The most obvious places are the Power steering rack itself - at each end, and the hoses that are attatched to it.
A leak at the pump is easily spotted.

Hoses are cheaper to replace than seals on the rack (which may require a new unit)

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

Issue is not likely to be the power steering pump. The sounds are made when there is low fluid in the pump/system. Cheapest check is to make sure that the feed and return lines at the pinion housing are firmly attached. You could also have a leaking seals in the rack and pinion assembly. If you see bubbles in the power steering fluid and there is pressure in the power steering system, this is a strong indicator that the issue is seals and not the pump itself. In Regina, Canada, Canadian Tire charges $45 for an inspection. To replace the power steering pump is about $300, and just the hoses is about $145. Obviously the $45 inspection is your best bet.

My 2003 Chevy TrailBlazer power steering is leaking in the boot going to the rack. What do I need to do? What needs to happen


If there is power steering fluid in the rack boots than the rack has gone bad and will need to be replaced asan entire unit. It is not that hard of a job on this vehicle. The worst part will be removing the power steering lines from rack. If you think it's something you want to tackle yourself I can give you some basic direction on what to do.

Clunking noises during acceleation,steering wheel went out,and leaking fluid. What could this be?


Some 99+ GM vehicles have problems with the intermediate steering shaft. There is a special grease that goes in the shaft but on some it leaks out and causes a "clunking" or vibration in the steering. If it is leaking power steering fluid then that can be solved by finding the source and replacing the part. The pump could leak, the line from the pump could leak and the steering rack itself could leak. Need to find out which one is the problem first.

A clunk during acceleration is likely in the drive train. Could be a loose universal joint or a lot of play in the differential.

Hoses do not last forever. Try tightening the fittings on the hose end, if that does not work, take hose off and take to parts store, partsman should give you the right one,make sure all the hard bent parts are same as old or it will not go on properly.

2005 Chevy trailblazer is leaking 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.
