Q: Q: Power steering fluid leak

asked by on

My power steering fluid is leaking out.

Hi. The source of the leak needs to be determined. Leaving a power steering system leaking will only make it worse and can possibly damage expensive components, such as the power steering rack or pump. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, who can inspect the source of the power steering leak fluid and replace any damaged parts.
