Q: Power steering fluid leak

asked by on

I have a leak in the power steering fluid line. The pump was replaced in 2014.

Hello. The vehicle’s power steering consists of a few components, as well as a pressure line side and return or low pressure line side. Most commonly, the high pressure side can experience leaks from wear or the low pressure side from a weak line clamp. Have an experienced technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect source of the leak and replace any other components that have been damaged.
