Sounds like you will need to replace the power steering pump at the very least. Finding where the leak is coming from would help in determining which parts need replaced. The age of the vehicle would suggest that the seals are going bad.

Why does power steering fluid leaks out on left side ? makes whining noise i fill it up with in an hr its gone whats the problem?

You obviously have a leak. It should be very easy to find, first, crank engine & refill power steering reservoir to proper level. Then have someone turn the steering wheel slowly while you look around the pump, hoses & rack & pinion unit. Wherever the leak is you will see fluid leaking when the steering wheel is being turned. You can also turn the wheel all the way to either the left or right until the wheel binds up, (which puts the system to full pressure and at the same time keep pressure applied to the wheel) and you will definitely find the leak. It's probably going to be 1 of your pressure hoses. Be careful driving it until you get the leak fixed as you can burn your pump up by running it without/low on fluid. Hope this helps.

Poured brake fluid in power steering

Hey, If you got brake fluid into the internal workings of the gear,, you may have to have it rebuilt... brake fluid does a number on seals and have at least 4 seals and 3 o-rings...not to mention the 4 teflon rings on the valve body..if all you have is air in the line,.. it will work itself out..I would watch for oil leaks..... watch for the boots (long round black corrugated hard rubber) on each end of the gear filling with oil - they will swell up before they burst/leak.. - if this happens.. you will lose all steering... it will be harder than manual steering... to remove the air faster, just get in a large area and turn from full lock right to left over and over...and over and over.. it will work itself out.. IF there is a leak to the outside (you might be sucking air INTO the system)..and oil will be leaking out..

Power steering not working, and put power steering fluid in car

Lets use common sense here

It leaks,you stop using the car & repair the leak

Most likely the steering rack is worn & needs to be replaced

That's what happens when you don't flush the fluid every
3 years or it leaks & runs low

Hello. my 2000 gmc 1500 truck is leaking steering fluid ,i'a constantly refilling the container ?.not sure what its called..what should i do ? i don't want to replace it , i just can't afford...

Why would you fill anything that leaks back out?

If you can't afford anything, why ask what to do?

Why not just tell us what you saw leaking,such as a
power steering hose etc.

You know something has to be bought & installed,
to get the steering system back in proper working order

You will get a kick out them & want to move to
another planet , to away from the silly people

Excessive power steering fluid usage

The power steering is a sealed system, if you are using fluid then you have a leak in the system somewhere. It could be the seals in the pump, a hose, a loose fitting or the rack and pinion is leaking. Have someone turn the steering wheel full left & full right while you inspect for should be able to locate it. If it is the seals in the rack and pinion, it will be under the car. It's mounted directly in front of the cross-member. You can purchase a rebuilt R & P for less than $200 with your old core as trade in. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Nissan Murano SL AWD, done 113k km. I had a steering fluid leak few weeks back.Nissan dealer diagnosed it as pressure hose leak.Options were to replace the hose ($ 750) or have it repaired by...

Sometimes air gets into the power steering system, and can cause noises.

often, the technician that installed the hose, could ensure all the air is out, by having the car up off the ground, and turning the steering full left and full right, while bleeding the system, as well as making sure that it has 100% fresh fluid too.

Power steering noise on turning; noticed no power

Check the ends of your rack & pinion for signs of a leak. If a leak is present, replace the rack & pinion. If no leaks, maybe your power steering pump is going out.
