    My 2004 Mazda 6 is leaking power steering fluid. Also, steering is not "tight" and pulls slightly to the right.

    I have a 04 mazda 3 s hb. about two years ago i took it on tantilus drive, a road in hawaii with tight hairpins and generally a fun rod to drive. while driving my power steering went out. i could still turn the wheel just really hard to turn. the problem didnt happen a whole lot at first. now if i am at a stop and i turn the wheel the power steering goes out. or at slow speed i can feel in the wheel start to lose the assistants in the steering wheel. i then have to get on the gas for it to go away.

Steering pumps do, just go out. It doesnt have to leak it can just stop pumping. Then there is the actual steering box which is where the pump, pumps the fluid to. I would check to make sure the pump is working by disconnecting the in hose and turn over if fluid spurts out it still good.

Woke up found my jaguar 2002 X type (petrol) clutch pedal on floor. No signs of leakage of fluid. After pumping clutch up and down several times, clutch returns. A few mins after no clutch.


sounds like the concentric clutch slave cylinder is faulty/leaking, is there any sign of fluid loss from the resovoir, it uses the brake resovoir for its fluid supply, the leaked fluid is probably in the flywheel houslng, big job to change. front subframe has to be removed, if its a 2.5 or 3.0ltr transfer box also.

Hi Lisa, I'm not certain, but it is possible that the power steering has a separate belt. If the fluid level has remained constant and there are no noticeable leakages, a broken belt is the most likely cause. Regards John

Mazda rx8 steering heavy


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Please try to fill in the power steering fluid on the power steering reservoir. When filling please move the steering wheel to the left and right for the fluid to go down. This can help lighten the steering wheel. Please do check if you have power steering leakage too for this may be the cause of fluid loss.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2004 ford f250 powerstroke. brake pedal is hard to press at first then goes straight to the floor also power steering quit working at the same time.


Hmm.. Low fluid in the power steering pump, broken belt driving the power steering pump, failed component causing loss of power steering fluid, failed power steering pump.

Check for a broken belt first, check the oil in the pump, look for leakage under the truck.

If the pump is low on fluid you want to put about half the amount in that you're going to need and then start the truck and turn the wheel slowly from stop to stop, each way- spend about ten seconds going from one stop to the other. This will allow any air in the system to be purged out in a controlled fashion, it can really spray if you get a big, compressed bubble of air in the system and release it quickly. Shut the truck off and top the steering pump up, check for leaks.

Need to change power steering hose


it is a big job since you need ro crimp the hoses properly. I would recommend to send this to a specialist since improper fittings would mean leakage or contamination of the fluids which may lead to loss of pressure, damage or accidents.

Power steering fluid smell when using defrost??


Do you see any sign of power steering leakage under the hood? The air intake for the ventilation system is right in front of the windshield, and maybe vapors from the engine compartment are mixing in.

The other question is, are you sure it's power steering fluid you're smelling? Coolant/antifreeze has a similar odor. If you think it may be antifreeze, check to see if the carpeting in the front seat area is wet. You may have a heater core leaking, which would allow the coolant into the cabin area.

My power steering fluid needs topping up every couple of weeks is this right or do i have a problem with my ford fiesta finesse 05


You should not have to add fluid on a power steering system. You have a leak somewhere. Do a good visual inspection checking pump, hoses, steering gear signs of leakage. Once you identify the leak it's just a matter of replacing the faulty component.

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

that could be the rack and pinion leaking. as far as the noise goes, it is more than likely the same thing. have your local mechanic check it out because if its the power steering pump its cheaper to fix that than it will be to have the rack replaced.
