SOURCE: how do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo

A power steering dosent need bleeding. If you replaced it a week ago and was fine until now then it's not an air problem. Power steering fluid is pumped through the system even when the steering is not being used. Definatly not an airlock problem. Cheer's

I have an oil leak at top of motor and car didn't make this whining noise at first I checked the power steering and its full could the whining come from the leaking issue


Does the whining volume increase when you turn the steering wheel back and forth? If so, your power steering pump is on its way out. The "oil leak at top of motor" is not very descriptive. Is the color of the oil the same as the color of the power steering fluid? If so, it is likely that leak is coming from your power steering pump. If not, I would need more information to determine the cause of the leak. What color is it? How much is leaking? Does it leak when the car isn't running, or only when it is running? Where exactly on top of the motor is it leaking? A hose? A seam in the engine?

Hi i recently purchased a 2004 subaru legacy station wagon. There is a weird smell coming out of t he front hood. it steams out and there is no leakage anywhere. The smells is like burning food.


Could be a water pump leaking,and
then the hot engine burns off the coolant
which you smell,thus you see no leak
Check the radiator and canister bottle

Looks like an oil leak above steering rack. Is


Check out the steering fluid at the rubber hose connecting to the metal hose. It gets deteriorated and made some leak. When the car is traveling, it could splash everywhere. Try to tighten the clamp. If it doesn't work, replace that rubber hose and a clamp. If it is a case have the steering fluid flushed out to get a new fresh fluid for your steering.

1996 Audi A4. On a very cold morning the power steering fluid overflows from the resevoir.


Check up the hydraulic power steering pump.
See picture below for 1.6, 1.8 liters Audi (4 cyl.) engines:

If you find leaks and noise when runing, the hydraulic vane type pump is damaged. The pump **** air inside and mix air with oil resulting foam. Therefore fluid volume inside steering instalation rises. Then pressure overflows oil from the reservoir. You need repair or replace hydraulic vane type steering pump.
