That's most likely transmission fluid because the diaphragm on your trans that changes the shift point, the vacuum line hooked to the carb is sucking trans fluid right into the engine and now it's fouled the plugs and won't start. Change the plugs, unhook the vacuum line to the tranny, plug the vacuum port and re-start the engine. You know now you have to replace the vacuum unit on the trans.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leeking

Hi,
Keep fluid in it so you can drive normally, though it leaks... I don't know how fast it's leaking.
You'll need to determine the leak source:
1. Leaking hose connection
2. Punctured/damaged Hose
3. Punctured/damaged power steering pump
etc.
Once identified, you can proceed with a plan for repair.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Replaced powersteering hose and now the truck wont turn over


If you filled the power steering reservoir with the proper fluid (usually ATF), you should let the engine run for a while and try to turn the steering wheel a bit in either direction.
The wheels will hop a bit, you will feel like the power steering isn't working for a while, then it'll start working again and so on. Keep turning the wheel lock to lock until it works smoothly.
Keep an eye on the fluid level as you may need to refill the reservoir a couple of times as the fluid will be distributed in the power steering system.
Observe any strange sounds coming from the power steering pump and make sure not to keep the steering wheel turned to the limit as it may hurt the pump.

What will help my car to work


you have to find the leak in the system to know what needs replacing. if its the pump then replace the pump if its a hose replace hose, etc. then fill system with power steering fluid and start car and turn the steering wheel all the way left and right to bleed the system of air until the fluid has no air in it and is at the correct level. shut off car and let sit for a while and recheck fluid level. this will also help with the steering wheel not wanting to turn.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire


Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

My Power Steering fluid is low, I want to add power steering fluid. I can't find the cap to add fluid in my 2006 Chevy Malibu LTZ.


how do you know its low then? it's there in the engine compartment, its usually set in a small black plastic box towards the front off most engines because its run by the serpentine belt, so follow the belt on your car it rolls right over the power steering unit. it"ll have a circular knob with small half moon cuts on the outside to make it easier to grip, and right on the top, in yellow writing, it'll say power steering fluid only! Hydraulic fluid or transmission fluid, dont put brake fluid in there..always in a pinch you can pour transmission fluid in. Now if its leaking i highly recommend "Lucas" stop leak power steering fluid, but only to top it off dont poor in the whole bottle at once because this stuff works too good! and could lock up your steering. Everytime its low just top it off again.
can you rate my answer.thank you.

Hi good day i'm having a problem with my 2001 toyota corolla power steering system. when i start the car the power steering reservior starts overflowing and wont stop until the car shuts off. please help...


for it to overflow it must be taking the fluid out of the steering rack ram as otherwise it would just recirculate the fluid, this would suggest one of the lines is blocked kinked or trapped.
