SOURCE: 89 jeep cherokee powersteering leak

Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaking;

Fill it up. Have a helper hold the steering wheel to all the way to the stop while you check for leaks. Especially the high pressure hose.

SOURCE: Coolant is leaking from my 2000 chrysler cirrus.

Stop leak is last resort, or cheap way out in emergency situation, but remember, sometimes it can clog up some parts of heater & cooling system. Take it to a rad shop, or auto repair place & have the cooling system pressure tested. It will confirm if there is a leak, and they should have dye that they can add to coolant when leak is hard to find, or if they suspect head gasket leak. Then they run engine for while & shine a blacklight all over engine & into exhaust pipe, to see glow of dye, to confirm where coolant is going.

SOURCE: power steering is leaking 2002 Hyundai Sonata gls

usually the high pressure hose will leak, the hose will be wet; that would indicate a leak. sometimes the steering rack will leak if you have alot of miles
to locate these items go to an auto parts box store and look at the manual for your car

SOURCE: how do i remove the Powersteering pump in my 1998

Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

Power steering leak


with power-steering it could be one of three problems. 1- power steering pump could be going out ( normally with the pump the car will whine but will not normally leak and still hold fluid) 2- a leak in your power steering lines ( and can normally be resolved with new lines or sometimes you may be able to bypass and clamp the leak on the line) 3- you may have busted the O rings in your powersteering pump and that will actually cause the pump to leak

hint- alot of people will tell you that you may also use transmission fluid for power-steering this is true you can its that same thing as power-steering fluid just a different color (but dont put power-steering fluid in a transmission, but at the same time if you plan on replacing the pump i would use transmission fluid due to it being cheaper but it will cause the O rings in the power-steering pump to go out quicker to cause a worse leak) so i would recommend to locate the leak first before using trans fluid due to if its in a line you wont have to replace the pump but if its already the pump this is the cheapest fix until repaired

The powersteering was working fine when i parked but when i started the car and began to back up i had no powersteering. what would cause this?


Check the level of power steering fluid in the resovoir.
If low refill and your steering should come back.
Check for leaks by looking under the car and have someone turn wheel from one extreme to the other. Alot of times the fluid only leaks under high pressure when the wheel is turned

I repaced my powersteering serpentine belt and power steering pump 3 months ago. today it was 32 below 0 C', I started my truck and all of the sudden no power steering I parked it the night before and...


You have a leak fords are noritas for this although its a great disgin madza disgined this pump it works like a rotery engine and last for ever its likely the plastic resiveor had swolen and the seal is likely leaking. You could try putting fuild in with seal swell and also looking for a leak in one of the lines. Look for the oil if its not on the pulley or beat its the lines.6 Mounts ago i rebuilt my 85 that i've had for 23 years there was no WARE AT ALL in that pump but it has always leaked and it still dose a little not on the belt or pulley its just the way they are

Power steering line (s) leaking


There;s not much you can do other than replacing the lines. Just make sure they are not loose or it is actually leaking from somewhere else.

I have a 2003 Ford Escape that is leaking power steering fluid. I replaced the power steering pump and hoses but it is still leaking. It only leaks when the Escape is turned off.


It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)

I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.

2005 jetta no power steering hard to steer


First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.

Leaking Hydraulic Fluid


Power steering fluid is the only thing the car has resembling hydralic fluid. If you follow the rubber hose all the way around from the pump to the gear box, possibly with the car running and the wheel being turned back and forth by someone while you look, you should find your leak. This is assuming it is powersteering fluid. Check your pump. Is it low? Rubber hose probably turns to steel line somewhere along the path from pump to gearbox, hope that helps ya a touch.

Leak under car (front driver's side)


What is the colour of the oil? Power steering oil will be red in colour or match it with the oil from powersteering oil reservoir. Its easy to locate powersteering pump. as it is driven by drive belts. So look around it and check for leaks. If no leaks, follow the hoses as far as you can and see if you can find leaks. You can also get underneath the car with a light and try to trace the leak.
