When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen


When bleeding the radiator i found coolant leaked into power steering reservoir how would this happen? =============================================
1. Not enough information and you have not identified the vehicle either.


2. Coolant cannot leak to the PS system. They are entirely separate systems and unconnected.

3. If you have an auto transmission then in some models there is a section of the radiator used for cooling the auto transmission hydraulic fluid . IF there is a breach in the radiator between the 2 sections then coolant can flow into the auto trans fluid and vice versa. If you find there is pink hydraulic fluid in the coolant when draining the radiator then it will be auto transmission fluid.

In that event you will need to replace the radiator and to have the auto trans serviced now or the transmission will fail if the hydraulic fluid has been contaminated.

Power steering fluid leaking into engine oil sump, even while stationary


PS fluid cannot possibly leak into the engine oil. They are completely separate systems isolated from one another.

The only fluid that can leak into the engine oil is radiator coolant via a crack in the engine block or engine head or via a damaged head gasket.

On cars with automatic transmissions, there is normally also a separate circuit for cooling the transmission fluid built into the radiator. The oil from the transmission is pumped by the transmission through a second heat exchanger inside the radiator.
This is a separate system but if there is a crack in the radiator where the transmission fluid is cooled it is possible for auto transmission fluid to get into the radiator coolant via a crack in the right area. If auto transmission fluid has got into the coolant an inspection of the coolant will show it.

My 1999 Lincoln contintal started leaking fluid while driving down the hwy. I pulled into a store and it all drain out. What caused this and how much will it cost to fix.


I am sorry about your misfortune. You need to determine what type of fluid it was. If it is coolant it is usually a green or pink. Cooling systems can be pressurized and be tested to find leaks. If it was any other type of leak, proper visual inspection will determine usually where to start.

My coolint is evaperating,and i have to add every day


you must have a leak somewhere. Your coolant will not boil unless you have a leak. Check for leak traces of fluid the color of your anti-freeze. Your radiator cap is spring loaded and with time the spring gets weak.
Check that area for leak traces. The easiest way to check for leaks is to look at your driveway. if you have a coolant leak the fluid traces will be on the driveway. Don't mistake your air conditioner water leak as being the coolant fluid. The anti-freeze coolant has a sweet smell whereas the air conditioner fluid is just plain water being removed from the air inside of your cab.

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leaks fluid under the car. Took it to Sport Durst. Told them about the leak and that it sounds like water flowing through the dashboard. My low coolant light was


Put a large piece of light paper under the cars or truck motor area and let it set overnight. In the morning see what color the fluid is. Put your finger in the fluid that has leaked if any is there and see if it feels like water or oil. Coolant could be orange or green depending on the type you use. Coolant can sometimes be confused with transmission fluid. Check the water hoses that go into the dashboard for leaks. Also check for dampness on the passenger side of the front seat on the carpet area. If it is wet it is your heater coil that has a leak. Hope this hopes.

Pinkish fluid from front of car


this sounds like coolant, as this car uses the pinkish radiator coolant, you may have a leaking radiator or a bad hose, you will need to pressure test the cooling system to find the leak, the only other fluid is the ****** fluid but thats more of a dark red color so i would say its the coolant thats leaking, these cars have radiator leak as they get old but again to be sure you would need to look at the radiator and maybe pressure test it to find the leak. good day

I have a 1987 Vette that has never dripped anything onto the driveway, until last night. It is really leaking good all of a sudden. Where should I look first.


First you need to identify what's leaking? What color is fluid? Green, Red, Brown? and where under car is fluid leaking from center, front rt, etc... Another option is check ALL fluid levels - coolant, oil, power steering, transmission.

My low fluid light is on, my heat is not working properly, i have fluid leaking under my car not really sure what it is. i know it is not oil, or tranny fluid, think maybe water and coolant, but my coolant...


Low fluid light means check your coolant which prob whats on the ground. Depending on the rate of leakage fill coolant start try and locate leak sounds like a hose or water pump slow leak prob water pump fast leak hose good luck

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee fluid leak


That is the area the air conditioner vent drains. There aren't a lot of fluids possible - coolant, power steering fluid and transmission fluid are the only ones that would be in that position unless your windshield washer fluid leaks from the tubing. Brake fluid would be closer to the wheels. If the air conditioner runs at all it removes moisture from the passenger compartment and drains near the passenger side firewall. All the other fluids would hae a definite smell.
