Question about 2000 Renault Sportwagon
That sounds like a power steering issue ... for which I would recommend that you take your car to a mechanic. These parts are confusing to try to fix on your own if you don't have the experience and training, and it is dangerous if it is not done right. To check if this is the case, you can look at your power steering fluid level -- if it is low, then you probably have a leak in your steering-gear box, and should have it repaired or replaced. If your power steering fluid level is not low, then there is another issue here.
If it's not the power steering fluid that is leaking, what color is the fluid? Is it red, green, pink, black, or burnt umber in color? If you wipe the leak with a white piece of paper, is the fluid full of specks, or is it clean? Red is generally reserved for hydraulics (and could be the power steering fluid) ... green or pink is most likely antifreeze (which could be coming from your heating coil and running onto the power steering box somehow, making it look like it is that part that is going -- this would require a replacement of your heating coil -- it would also create a sweet smell in the car while you are driving. Black or burnt umber would be engine oil. It would be VERY strange for this fluid to be leaking into your car, but I have seen stranger things happen. If this is the case, bring your car to a mechanic and have them check the valve-cover gasket ... it would be strange, but somehow the engine oil might be leaking down your engine, and then through the car's firewall along the steering column -- unlikely, but possible.

Hi there? the oil leak that you getting on your pedals is not oil, it's brake fluid from the clutch slave cylinder. has the clutch pedal operation changed lately.
You have to replace it because it will break down soon.
