Leaking power steering fluid


You are likely seeing auto trans fluid. It is often used as a substitute for power steering fluid. You say it's leaking badly so someone probably got tired of paying for power steering fluid and switched to the much cheaper ATF.

Leaking power steering fulid


Most common cause is a bad power steering line. Clean off the power steering pump and refill it with fluid. Then, while the car is running, have someone turn the wheel from side to side while you observe the power steering unit. If you're unable to see fluid leaking from the fittings on the lines, the leak will likely be due to a kink in the line further down.

Power steering fluid low 1994 altima. i noticed leaks under the car. Does the pump leak when going bad or could it just be a hose?


The power steering pump doesnt leak unless the resevoir is cracked. The hoses can be bad or the seals for the steering mechanism could be bad also. have it looked at by a pro

There is a leak of power steering fluid from the boot on the steering rack, believe the boot has a rubber clip that the pipe feeds into thats now missing, can it be repaired without replacing the whole...


Heres the problem the boot is to protect the shaft from dirt, the pipe is to bleed air out, if theres power steering fluid leaking out then the steering rack is bad and needs replacing. the seal on the side of the leak is bad and replacing is the result, by replacing the boot or reclamping it is only going to hold all the leaking oil inside and you will see you will be added power steering fluid. good luck. hope this is helpful.

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

I have a 2000 Kia Spectra. I have a bad power steering leak in one of my power steering hoses. I need to know if this hose is the power steering hose or the power steering suction hose?


The the power steering hose is also refered to as the high pressure hose if that is the one thats leaking it's usually easy to find out. While you watch for leaks on the hoses have the car running and have someone turn the steering wheel all the way right or left til it stops it usually will squeal, that is when the hose is at the highest pressure if it's the one leaking you should see it
