Q: Q: Leak in power steering

asked by on

There is a leak in power steering system. The car is often not driven for long periods.

The power steering pump or hoses could be the cause but the system would need a complete diagnostic inspection to verify the leak before a recommendation for repairs is given. I recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check the system to locate and repair any leaks in the power steering system in order to restore your vehicle back to full function.
