How do I find a leak in power steering I can't see it from the top.Within 20 minutes fluid is gone.Cant see any leak but puddle on ground.

Did you already checked on the steering rack?
Maybe you need to check from the bottom vehicle also. The leakage commonly occur at the hose joint and sometimes it occur at oil seal on steering rack.

How do i diagnose power brake assist failure?

The power steering cap is clearly marked so you should be able to view the reservoir to determine if it is low. If low, top it off and see what happens. But be careful.

It sounds as if the fluid is triggering a fault that turns on the lights. I would be very careful if you try to drive this vehicle, you may suddenly find the steering is VERY hard to turn. Get it to a trustworthy shop as soon as possible. If the fluid leaks fast enough to empty the power steering you could crash. It would be cheaper to have it hauled to a shop than risk a costly accident.

Transmission fluid

You are correct to be concerned. Look and see if the transmission has any vacuum lines. If it does, check the lines by disconnecting them and see if transmission fluid is inside the lines. If there is transmission fluid present, the engine is drawing the fluid out of the transmission and burning it in the combustion chambers.

Radiator overflow- Check color of antifreeze in overflow tank. The radiator can have 2 chambers. If the chambers breach, the fluids can mix. Since the overflow can vent the excess fluids, it can provide an outlet for the trans fluid.
Leaks, most common. There should be staining and presence of oily residue. Check for lower cooling coil assembly. Some Makers use a separate cooling unit similar to a steering cooler if a 2 chamber radiator is not equipped.
You may be able to simply go to a quick change oil shop and drive over their service bay. They could check for leaks.

My power steering fluid is leaking, i fill it up and it all leaks out does this mean the the hose is busted or the power steering gear is no good, yet when i fill it back up with power steering fluid it...

The most common cause is a leak in the power steering line. With someone sitting in the car,(and the car running) watch the power steering line and ask them to turn the wheel in both directions. A leak in the power steering line will spurt fluid during this exercise whereas a leak in the power steering unit itself would tend to ooze fluid due to less pressure.

Bad CV Joint?

Did you notice any leaks from the power steering? If you did not notice any leaks, the only place for the fluid to go is in the bellow boots(the accordion boots on the rack and pinion system). Go underneath and if no leaks are obvious, take a small screwdriver and poke a small hole in one of the boots. If fluid comes out, you're looking at replacing the rack and pinion. This would also explain the excessive play you're feeling in the steering.

Hello, I have a Suzuki Grand Vitara (2006). This morning, all of a sudden, I found it very difficult to turn left and right. It drives fine if I don't have to turn. :( The steering wheel gets very hard...

well, the first thing to check is the power steering fluid, make sure thats full. next thing is to make sure the belt is still on for the power steering and that it is tight,a loose or missing belt will cause this, if the fluid is full and belt is tight then we may be looking at a bad power steering pump or steering gear. to find out which of the two is the problem a preasure test needs to be done on the pump. hope this helps.

Power steering went out on 1996 ford ranger what is problem?

The problem could be anything from a power steering hose has leaked out all the power steering fluid or the steering rack could be leaking fluid. Has the car made any strange noises when turning the steering wheel? A car that is loosing power steering fluid will at some point lose so much fluid as to make the power steering pump cavitate (starve for fluid) and the pump will make a high pitched noise when it has too little fluid in it. I can't remember if the 1996 ranger had only one belt on the engine or if the power steering has it own seperate belt. The belt being gone would prevent the power steering from working but if you only have one belt the car would also overheat.
