Bring it to the garage ASAP to prevent damage to the system.
because then it becomes very expensive
let them repair the leak.

    I would NOT start to replace items if you don't know where the leak is.

I have a 2002 santa fe ,, i seem to be leaking power stearing fluid ,, i am re-filling it at least 3-5 times per day , could you please give me some idea what the problem could be . thank

Many things can cause this leak but the easiest and cheapest fix would be to check the cover on the refill site. If the refill resevoir is all wet, then your cap may be leaking.

Power steering problems this oil seems to be leaking from the bottom of the car

its either the power steering pipe, or a seal on the power steering rack, be careful driving it beacuse it can lock the steering when your not expecting it. get it checked out asap. either job shouldnt be expensive.

2002 Santa Fe Power Steering leak

Good Day
How much are you adding every 2-3 days? The fluid has to be going some were, to me it sounds like your rack and pinion is gone. I would take your vehicle into a mechanic some were that you trust and have it check out. Having it up on the hoist will be easy to fine the problem. Like I said it could be the rack or maybe there is a small hole in on of the lines. Now the price it could be from 200 - 600 depends on were you go to have it fix. Hope this helps.

Power Steering Pump on 01 v6 santa fe

Sure sounds like its low of fluid or the filter is very dirty! My guess is that it works well driving straight open road. Most often the filter is inside the pump. Frankster016
