Try tightening the unit first. next replace the "o" ring as it is cheaper or if the "o" ring is ok then the oil must be leaking past the internal seal of the unit and the unit will need replacing

every possibility

Where is my Camshaft position sensor location on 2008 Chevrolet implala 3.5L V6.

Remove the power steering pump. Refer to Power Steering Pump Replacement . Disconnect the camshaft position (CMP) sensor electrical connector. Remove the CMP sensor bolt. Remove the CMP sensor. Inspect the sensor O-ring for wear, cracks, or leakage if the sensor is not being replaced.
It's under the power steering pump .

Ive got a leak in the power steering box near the power steering lines what could it be

most likely it is one of two things. the O-rings on the end of the line has worn and all you have to do is remove the lines from power steering rack and put ne O-rings on. if your car uses a double flare nut style (like a brake line) then it is either the rack leaking or the actual hose leak. if it is the pressure hose you will generally see it spray. not so much on the return line. this requires replacing the part that is faulty

ABS and power steering light is constantly on

Hi. The only link between abs and power steering that springs to mind is the steering wheel angle sensor but you really need at least a code read of the systems as the faults may be unrelated. I think spending a few quid at the local garage and getting a proper insite into what is going on will be money well spent. The pedal vibration will probably turn out to be the abs activating on low speed braking as it is seeing a low speed signal from one wheel sensor. This can be caused by an abs speed sensor being improperly gapped or a damaged sensor pick up ring among other things, Again without some real details or codes from the ecu its hard to give a real diagnosis. A visual inspection of the wheel sensors and pick up rings may reveal something - you don't need to know exactly what your looking at just that they all look the same and clean, no missing teeth on the pick up rings or cracks. If you get at least a code read and post the results we might be able to delve a little deeper.

Power steering leak

with power-steering it could be one of three problems. 1- power steering pump could be going out ( normally with the pump the car will whine but will not normally leak and still hold fluid) 2- a leak in your power steering lines ( and can normally be resolved with new lines or sometimes you may be able to bypass and clamp the leak on the line) 3- you may have busted the O rings in your powersteering pump and that will actually cause the pump to leak

hint- alot of people will tell you that you may also use transmission fluid for power-steering this is true you can its that same thing as power-steering fluid just a different color (but dont put power-steering fluid in a transmission, but at the same time if you plan on replacing the pump i would use transmission fluid due to it being cheaper but it will cause the O rings in the power-steering pump to go out quicker to cause a worse leak) so i would recommend to locate the leak first before using trans fluid due to if its in a line you wont have to replace the pump but if its already the pump this is the cheapest fix until repaired

O ring is leaking from power steering pressure hose

I had the same problem. You can not replace that o ring. You have to replace the complete hose ***. They redesigned the hose to fix that common problem. To bad the customer has to pay to replace a poorly designed part.

My 04 volvo xc90 leaking power steering fluid at night

I have the same problem with 05 XC90 2.5T.. It seems like there is a problem with the power steering pump. And the only way to fix it is to change the pump. Now i'm trying to use the lucas stop leaking thing as well and will see what happens.

Power steeing fluid leaks

try replacing the o ring or use double o rings between the reservoir and pump, pressure builds from use and the fluid blows out of this o ring even after the vehicle is off. When the dealer replaces the pump they re-use the reservoir and o ring so the problem does not get fixed. The fluid runs down the pump and the lines to the rack, instead of washing the engine and observing where the fluid is leaking from, they replace good parts until they find the problem. Sometimes one o ring isn't enough.
