HELLO! Give the area around the pump a good clean-up. Start the car, and while someone turns the steering wheel from lock to lock (several times) try and determine if the connection point of pressure line to pump is leaking. Also watch behind the pulley for fluid escaping from behind the belt pulley. If it's the connection ;
Remove, clean , and tighten. If leak is behind pulley the pump seal is defective and you'll need to but a new pump. It is less expensive to buy it from an auto parts store. But here is a tip; Stop at a dealership, have the parts dept. run your VIN to identify what your pump looks like. Take that drawing to parts store to insure your getting the correct replacement. Honda uses a multitude of of different pumps.

Power steering fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla

look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

How to bleed air from power steering 02 kia optima

Make sure there are no leaks in the return hose. If there are leaks in the return line it could be pulling in air and causing the foaming and noise. If there are no leaks you fill the reservoir with power steering fluid and crank the car then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right then all the way to the left a couple of times and that should get rid of all the air in the lines.

Check power steering fluid in honda accord 1994

The power steering reservoir (I believe) is on the drivers side just behind the headlight. about mid-way down the side of the reservoir are a high and low mark. The reservoir should be just at or below the high mark when the vehicle is off. ONLY USE HONDA POWER STEERING FLUID. There are certain conditioners and additives in the Honda fluid that keep seals in the system in good condition. Using a generic/aftermarket fluid will cause the seals to shrink and the system will likely develop leaks.

I have a 325i 2003. The power steering reservoir is leaking ever so little, However there is an odor coming from the engine when the engine is hot. The reservior is maintaining it's fluid according to the...

The power steering fluid leak is most likely a hose. BMWs are notorious for power steering hose leaks. On this car, replacing the power steering hose is not too hard once you get the air filter box and a few other things out of the way.
The smell is most likely the valve cover gasket leaking onto the exhaust manifold. This is another very common problem on BMWs, and is another problem that is not difficult to correct. Once you take off the cabin air filter tray, the valve cover is easy to access.
