Q: Q: Leaking power steering fluid

asked by on

My vehicle is leaking power steering fluid.

The most common power steering leak on your particular vehicle is from the high pressure hose / line and then the power steering pump. Look for obvious signs of a leak such as loose lines, broken lines, or a failed pump. A trained technician, like one from YourMechanic, could easily diagnose the leak and ensure that your power steering system is properly serviced.
