Q: Power steering fluid bubbling out the top of resivor what's wrong

asked by on

I have a 98 dodge avenger 2.5 and Power steering fluid bubbling out the top of resivor what's wrong

My car has 161087 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the fluid is filled too high when the pump is cold, then as the fluid gets hot, it expands and comes out of the cap vent. You should remove some fluid to bring the level to the proper level, either cold or hot, going by the instructions on dip stick cap.
