Q: Q: Power steering fluid leak

asked by on

I have power steering fluid leaking from the line.

Hello. It sounds like you may have a bad hose connected to the high side pressure port on the power steering pump. Over time, the crimped hoses will start to leak where the cramping is. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come out and replace the hose to ensure your vehicle does not leak power steering fluid anymore.
