    first logical step is to open the hood and look to find the source of the leak...can't fix it if you don't know what you're fixing.

Look underneath where your power steering lines go to the steering gear, the flare nut is probably loose, you can tighten it with a 18mm flare nut wrench, make sure it is a flare nut wrench or youll strip the bolt and be screwed

2001 chey cavalier is leaking power steering fluid under car.


You will need to clean under the car and then run car and turn wheel a few times then shut it down and try to find the leak, its got to be a hose or the metal return line is rotted and leaking, in some cases it may also be the power steering pump that leaks, after cleaning the old oil you will be able to pinpoint the leak better.

I have a 2006 Hummer 3. The power steering gets stiff and hard to turn intermittently. I have the factory recommended tires and have the truck serviced every 4000 miles.


I find it hard to believe that one of the tubes of steering oil could be blocked unless hit, so I would go for the pump. Poor oil pressure, ends up to low oil flow. However check your tubes, from and to the pump, and then, go for the pump. Sorry I can't tell you more.

How do i change a rack and pinion bellow on a 98 chevy cavalier? I need to know if I need a tie rod end puller and I also need to know where the clips on the bellow are located I can find the first one but...


The bellows is just a dust cover. If fluid is leaking from the bellows, the rod seal is bad. It's usually cheaper to replace the rack than it is to rebuild it.

I have a porsche 996 carrera which started making a whineing noise on the way home this morning. It seems to get faster in relation to the revs, but it's louder when at a slow speed and turrning the wheel....


If there is no leak underneath the car it means that probably your power steering fluid reservoir is empty. The best way to locate the leak is to pour in a little bit of p/steering fluid, start the engine, turn the steering wheel and then have a look underneath the car. It is probaly a flexible hose which has burst.
Cheers.
