Strut leak or power steering. More than likely the strut. Replace it if leaking there. It will require compression to release the spring if so. Best to let a mechanic handle it.

How do I stop my ankles and feet to swelling after being sun burnt

Hello Anne.
Since this is a Q & A about cars and trucks,,, I will venture off topic..
This is serious and therefore should be evaluated by a physician. When you go to your doctor's appointment, be prepared to discuss the following possibilities. If the ankle swelling started just after the sunburn, it may be due to an inflammatory reaction as the skin tries to heal. A sunburn is a first degree burn but it still causes local inflammation and pain. As the body mounts an inflammatory response, the capillaries in the area dilate and become leaky. This process can cause localized edema and swelling, which usually resolves on its own over time. However, not every sunburn causes this reaction, so if yours is severe, you should see a physician. The reason you get extreme pain when you stand still is because the blood is pooling in your lower legs causing the swelling to increase. It is so painful cause the tissues are ripping apart to create room for the 'blood pooling' or tissue swelling. The most sensitive areas are the shins cause the tissue is tightly attached to the bone. That is why when you sit down or lay down it subsides or goes away. The body is not "upright" causing gravity to pool the blood in your lower legs ankles and feet can also be due to lymphedema. Lymph fluid travels up through vessel and is filtered through the lymph nodes of the body. Any issue with the lymph nodes or vessels in your leg can cause the fluid to pool in lower areas of the leg. If you have ever had lymph nodes in your abdomen, pelvis, or legs removed or irradiated, you should see a doctor very soon. Another possible cause of your problem, is your body retaining too much fluid overall, which can be manifested as swollen ankles and feet. This condition, called pitting edema, can affect people who have problems with their heart, liver, or other body systems. When fluid builds up in the legs, it can also build up in the lungs and other critical organs, so it is important to have this issue evaluated immediately. I strongly recommend that you make an appointment to see your primary care doctor ASAP!!, and he or she can refer you to a specialist if this becomes necessary.

How to replace power steering pump on a 1992 Grand Am

To remove the power steering pump you need to remove the drive belt and disconnect the pressure and return lines from the pump, then remove the mounting bolts. This will allow you to remove the pump. To replace with a new or reman pump just follow the directions in reverse. After you have re-installed the pump, fill your pump reservoir to the FULL COLD mark. You have to raise just the front of the car so you can move the wheels freely, this will allow you to bleed the hydraulic system. (you don't want air bubbles :) ) With the key in the on position (don't crank) turn the wheels all the way to the left position, check the fluid and make sure it's still at the FULL COLD mark, if not, add more fluid. Then turn the wheels to the full right position and then left again several times without hitting the stops, and make sure again that the fluid is at cold fill. After turning the wheel back and forth several times, make sure the fluid is clear and bubble free. Start the engine and check the fluid. Let it off the stands and take it for a test drive. When you return, check the fluid at the FULL HOT mark, if it's lower, add fluid. Remember to check for leaks!! For easier procedure, make sure to have someone help you or you'll be doing a lot of running around :) Good Luck

If it is clear water, and its leaking onto the ground, and you are running the ac, its condensation from the ac.

Clear oil dripping out of radiator, why?

The clear oil leaking from the Radiator? Are you sure its not leaking from the a/c condenser? That oil is almost clear in color. The other oil that flows through the radiator is the transmission fluid, and it's usually a reddish, brown color. Please have this issue checked for early repairs, and may be possible to be a cheap repair. Thank you.

Made a hard left turn, immediately had a rumbling sound and vibration when turning steering wheel left or right. Clear fluid under car but can't see where it's coming from. Checked power steering fluid...

Sounds to me like your CV joints need to be replace. The oil may be come out of the differential due to a worn bearing or bad oil seal.
Hopefully this helps you out.
