My car is leaking power steering how to fix it?

With hydraulic power steering.
You may have a pressure hose and return hose, if problem with hose, you replace it.
I can't rule out a problem with rack&pinion?
Your steering shaft probably attaches to rack&pinion assembly.

Power steering pressure hose replacement

I need more info to help you. Take it to a good shop. It is ok to drive it there, just try to tape or plug or wrap the hose just in case all the fluid has not drained out you don't want to make a mess. It will be hard to steer, you will just have to drive old school, like it was before power steering. Mike

You have to repair it, or if it is loose at the connections, then tighten it. Otherwise if you do not repair it, then your powersterring will not work, sterring wheels will become stiff when driving.

My 2004 Kia Sorento won't steer in the morning . It is extremely stiff. The dealer changed the sensor and it has made no difference. Is it a rack problem ??

sounds like it is. but also make sure the pump has correct preasure in the am. it does sound like the rack, they wont turn until car is warm sometime they turn one way but hard to turn the other way until hot. good luck.
