Heres a couple of picture diagrams to help you, the most common area for a leak on these is the cooler line, this is the return line in which it is snaked in a s type shape to cool the power steering oil, these cooler line rots and leaks, so take a look at this first, its located at the bootm of the frame on the left side under the engine,hope this helps.

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

Power steering fluid is leaking badly. How do I locate the power steering pump and check the lines

Toyota power steering hoses fail very often, not certain what model you have, but follow the hose back from the power steering resiviour,and you will find the pump, then there is a high and low pressure line leading to the steering rack at the rear of the motor, it is usually the high pressure hose that fails

Daan,it sounds like you have hydraulic assisted brakes you should be able to trace the lines from the PS pump or steering gear box to the master cylinder,if the power steering is low on fluid refill it and have someone turn the steering wheel to one side or the other while you watch for leaks in the lines.if this helps you to locate the leak,just go to your local parts store and pick up a replacement.

Power steering leaks

Caravans all have the same problem with the power steering pump.The pump rusts and starts leaking from a rot hole in which there is no repair.If its a pressure line or a return line, they can be replaced as well as the steering pump.This is not a big job if your famliar with working on cars,if your not, I would recommend going to a garage.
