The power steering fluid (which is the same color as the auto transmissioin fluid)...can come from 1 of 4 places, the power steering reservoir, power steering pump, power steering rack, or the connection lines........

Where it is coming from will depend whereabouts it is leaking, if it is more towards the front of the car (engine), power steering poump would be the likely option.......however if it is more under the driver/passenger area under the car, this would be more likely be the rack...

I would suggest washing the vehilce down with high pressure wash, inlcuding underbody and engine area......let dry, take for a drive (15-20 minutes), then leaving on reasonably clean driveway/roadway...and see where it is leaking from...what area...then get a torch and trace to where it maybe coming from

Most likely the hose needs to be replaced or the clamp is loose from age

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking.

Year and mileage? Keep the fluid level up so you don't damage the power steering pump, and return to the garage that serviced it. This sounds like something wasn't tightened properly, and they should correct the problem. It is possible that a power steering hose or the pump itself developed a leak, but, it is most likely something that wasn't tightened properly. That's the best diagnosis that can be given w/out actually being able to see the vehicle.

Leaking power steering luid


You need to find out where its leaking from, gravity is usually a good place to start trace the fluid to the topmost wet part. There is usually the leak. I just changed the high pressure line between pump and rack on my 2001 sonata, wasnt terribly difficult but not much room to work on the rack side. The line ran me $65.

It could be a leaking hose, and the PS fluid is dropping on the hot exhaust. Check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir. If low or dry, look for a leak.
I don't know about the rattling-better have someone look at it.

I just had my power steering pump come up empty. No warning signs, or lights. I refilled it and t is still hard to turn plus smells like something is burning. A lot of smoke comes out of the tail pipe


For it to come up empty there has to be a leak, find the leak replace the item then refil, the burning smell has to be the power steering fluid on the exhuast.

Power steering fluid is leaking out of car with in hours and its not coming from the pump


There are also power steering hoses that could be leaking. With the hood up and the car running it shouldn't be to difficult finding them with it leaking so quickly. I hope this helps.

Leak under car (front driver's side)


What is the colour of the oil? Power steering oil will be red in colour or match it with the oil from powersteering oil reservoir. Its easy to locate powersteering pump. as it is driven by drive belts. So look around it and check for leaks. If no leaks, follow the hoses as far as you can and see if you can find leaks. You can also get underneath the car with a light and try to trace the leak.
