Q: Losing power steering fluid

asked by on

I am losing power steering fluid out of the pressure line.

If the pressure line is leaking, it will need to be replaced. When the pressure within the line is very high and cannot be patched or spliced. I recommend having a trained technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your power steering fluid for leaks and replace the line if needed.
