Address the leak, power steering fluid is flammable and you may have a engine fire if the fluid run's in to something hot enough to flash the fluid to ignite. You can spray brake parts cleaner to clean the area before you start the repair. Good luck and hope this helps, note there will be lots of mess under the car.

Hello my 2000 dodge durango started leaking a clear liquid this morning in the front can you please help me


Clear liquid is more than likely power steering fluid. Bad power steering line or bad seal in the rack and pinion unit, possibly a bad seal in the pump

98 Buick Regal leaking power steering liquid


The high pressure / low pressure hoses can give out after 120,000+ miles.

Place a cardboard under the car to identify the source of the leak.

My power steering liquid levels are topped up,but my Steering is not smooth and makes a noise like it would need fluid.What's going on?


Sounds like power steering pump is not building up enough pressure or is bleeding down. If pump is full & was not leaking fluid,it will most likely need to be changed. If fluid was down alot & you had to refill,has air pocket in system & needs to be bled.

Power steering pump is whining, and fluid is foamy any ideas.


It'll get foamy when there's air in the system, as you're likely to have with a leak or a low fluid level.

Let it settle back down to fluid, check the level, and top it off. If you're lucky, that'll get you running actual liquid again through the pump which should stop the whine for a while. If not, start by lookinf or and fixing any leak and move on from there. The steering gear doesn't like running on foam, and those puppies ain't cheap.

Power steering fluid leaking out


yes that is possible, and no the fluid is not supposed to be in those boots. the part you are talking about is your steering rack- if fluid is comming out of the boots, that means the seals in the rack are damaged. they are not servicable, the rack must be replaced.hope this helps and good luck
