Transmission fluid is red. Have a mechanic check it out to see if it's just the gasket on the pan or something else.

What caused the power steering quit on 99 honda civic


I don't know much about cars but that happened to my moms 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix. It was caused by a hose leaking power steering fluid. When it eventually ran out of fluid the power steering pump went out. Would have been a lot cheaper to fix the leak but after having the GMC dealership that sold us the car "replace" the leaking hose, it started leaking again (even worse than before) a few mths later.

2003 Ford Escape leaking red fluid


Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

2002 T-fird fluids leaking


Not really sure what your asking. But if your leaking from the power steering unit but it looks like tranny fluid it's because it is tranny fluid. Power steer fluid and tranny fluid are the same except that tranny fluid has a red dye in it.

Series II Discovery oil leak from the front steering union


Unfortunately Discoveries will always eventually leak some fluid, People who say theirs do not leak have just not found the problem yet. I just traded a 2003 for a new vehicle. First the power steering can and does leak but since the fluid capacity is not that much, if you have a continous leak and the power steering still works it is probably not the leak you need to address. also the plastic splash guard makes it difficult to identify leaks easily. My 2003 discovery was leaking for a while the leak was from the auto trans cooler. Check the leak colour, white paper under car, red fluid will be the trans fluid, The power steering fluid in the car is a special fluid (not trans fluid) if the correct fluid would be a greenish colour. Other than this oil leaks can be plentiful.

Loud noise when turning wheel red fluid leakage behind driver side tire no loss of power steering and persistantly louder when first driven and then noise almost goes away once 92 lexus ls 400 145000...


that could be the rack and pinion leaking. as far as the noise goes, it is more than likely the same thing. have your local mechanic check it out because if its the power steering pump its cheaper to fix that than it will be to have the rack replaced.

Leak under car (front driver's side)


What is the colour of the oil? Power steering oil will be red in colour or match it with the oil from powersteering oil reservoir. Its easy to locate powersteering pump. as it is driven by drive belts. So look around it and check for leaks. If no leaks, follow the hoses as far as you can and see if you can find leaks. You can also get underneath the car with a light and try to trace the leak.
