my jaguar s-type has steering liquid leak. When you top up with ATF the vehicle is drive-able. But when parked for long periods the ATF leaks out completely. What could be the problem?

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your Jaguar S-Type. This is a common problem with power steering pumps. Over time, they can develop leaks for a variety of reasons such as bad gaskets, leaking hoses, or excessive pressure in the system. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the leak firsthand and help you fix it accordingly.
