Could be either, to check fill will power steering fluid, start engine, have some one turn steering wheel, and see if it's coming out of a hose or from the back of the power steering pulley, if it's a hose replace power steering hose, if it's from the back of the pulley, replace power steering pump, hope this was very helpful.

I drive a 1998 isuzu rodeo v6. Just wondering what the thing is called that brings the power steering fluid to the tires. I'm assuming that's where it's leaking from. Thanks for any help!


Hi Dillon J
The items name is Power Steering Unit
Your leaking power steering fluid from either the power steering unit, or a hose that connects to the power steering unit...
You need to have it repaired as soon as possible, because if you loose all your fluid it will be almost impossible to steer.
