You have visible leaks.
It has to go somewhere.
Into the steering rack boots or the cooler hoses leak.

Kia rio 2004 The power steering fluid container was full and as I was driving I heard a pop some where in the engine I check everything and I was completely out of steering fluid I filled it up and turn...


Has the steering gone heavy? if the reservoir is empty and you top it up then it must have a substantial leak.If you cant see any fluid on the floor then it maybe that the leak is internal in the power steering rack.

Is it possible for power steering fluid to get into the engine and mix with the oil? I am loosing fluid and there are no visible leaks, the engine oil and filter was recently changed and now has turne


No, the power steering is entirely a separate and sealed system, wholly external to the engine. The power steering pump pushes the fluid through a high pressure hose into the rack and pinion-the steering gear mounted below and behind the engine-and holds pressure within the rack that enables power assisted steering. At the same end where the power steering fluid hose enters the gear will be a fitting for a return line back to the fluid reservoir. These two hoses are usually routed close together at least part of the way, some may even be held together with brackets. Leaks could develop at the pump, the fluid reservoir, or the two hoses to and from the rack and pinion, or the seals inside the rack and pinion may have failed. You should be able to find the leak-it will only leak to the outside-to check the rack and pinion for leaks, right where your tie rods come out of the gear and go to the wheels for steering, will be a small rubber boot encasing the tie rod and the end of the rack assembly-on both ends is a boot and a tie rod-peel back the rubber boot from the gear ass\'y, it should be dry. If a lot of fluid, the seals in the rack and pinion are gone. It will have to be replaced.
Hopefully you will find a leaking hose or fractured reservoir, but keep looking, air flow may be blowing the leaking fluid back and under the car. Good luck, hope it\'s not the rack and pinion.

It could be leaking inside the dust boot on the steering rack. if thats it ...it will eventually start leaking from the boots after they fill up. You could have a small leak from one of the lines. Good Luck

Cannot turn steering wheel with ease after going


Check the power steering reservoir for fluid, could have been a leak, or even a bad pump. However since you said it there was no visible damage it could be when stuck in the ditch you damaged your steering column, more specifically a joint, if possible have someone turn the steering while you inspect it for rubbing parts.

Very hard to steer, had the power steering pump replaced, worked fine the night it was replaced, on my way to work the next morning, it started having problems steering again. Please help!


Check the fluid level and add if it's low on fluid, look for visible leaks that will need to be addressed. The only other thing to that may have gone bad is the power steering rack and will need to be replaced. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your got your car running 100% again soon.

I have prablems i my power steering


My power steering pressure hose has a visible hole in it and squirts fluid when turning the wheel. How do I replace the pressure hose assembly? Is it O.K. to drive, if I top off the power steering fluid tank, and drive it about 10 miles to Autozone while it's still leaking?

Steering Wheel noise on cold start


this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.
