How can I get my power steering leak fixed??

My car has 175000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

If you suspect that power steering fluid is leaking, please request a leak diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will pinpoint the leak, estimate the repair and commence the repair right away if you desire. Leaks on these systems can vary from the extremely mundane and simple (e.g., a loose or deteriorated low pressure return hose) to the somewhat more involved, for example a leaking high pressure hose or a leak in the pump seal. Regardless of the source of the leak, having it repaired on a mobile basis, at your location, will save you a lot. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
