Q: Power steering fluid leak.

asked by on December 29, 2015

My vehicle is leaking power steering fluid.

You probably have a bad power steering hose that is leaking. A technician from YourMechanic can assist you with having the power steering hose replaced. If you look under the hood have a friend turn the steering wheel while you look for the leak.
