If the leak is at one of the connection points you may be able to simply tighten the connection to stop the leak. If there's a leak along the fluid line you'll need to replace it.

SOURCE: Suddenly leaking power steering fluid, reservoir empty

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

SOURCE: Power Steering

if it's the low pressure side i'm sure a mechanic can replace just the broken part. if it's the high pressure side, best off just to get a new hose. if not, the hose is likely to leak again on the high pressure hose if the unit isn't replaced.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

Town and country from pipe on passenger side firewall


Hi Mr.Downs.
Are you sure is only leaking when the vehicle gets warm? On checking the coolant level when the engine is cold and before starting is in a correct level?
Is it possible to be any drain pipe either if you do have air conditioning and running the air con then water comes out from that pipe and might you do have any dirt by the vaporator and gets the orange color.
Also do check for your power steering fluid,if there is any leakage
from the steering rack if it is close to that pipe and confusing you ?

Steering is very stiff in my 2004 jaguar xjr


You may have a fluid leak. The pipes are prone to leaking on that vehicle. The power steering top up reservoir is under the hood. Refer to reservoir caps for indication or owners manual.

Power steering moaning sound during turning left or right


This is most probably due to low powerstering fluid in the system, you can simply top it up and have the steering rack pipes and pump checked for leaks.

There is a leak of power steering fluid from the boot on the steering rack, believe the boot has a rubber clip that the pipe feeds into thats now missing, can it be repaired without replacing the whole...


Heres the problem the boot is to protect the shaft from dirt, the pipe is to bleed air out, if theres power steering fluid leaking out then the steering rack is bad and needs replacing. the seal on the side of the leak is bad and replacing is the result, by replacing the boot or reclamping it is only going to hold all the leaking oil inside and you will see you will be added power steering fluid. good luck. hope this is helpful.

Power steering fluid leaking - looking for schematic of steering assembly


most likely cause is a union where the flexible pipe joins the metal pipe ,on the power feed side of the system so follow pipe from pump to the steering rack and the high pressure pipe where it goes from metal to rubber is where you will find the leak

you just need to check your steering pipes and hoses for any leaks. just replace them if a leak is found. if your reservoir itself has a leak, then your only best bet is to replace the whole ting ..

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.
