Q: Q: Power steering fluid leak

asked by on

I have power steering fluid leaking from my car.

The first thing you will need to do is find out where the leak is coming from. From the reservoir, follow the lines until you see where most of the fluid is accumulating. Most of the time the power steering pressure line is what leaks on your particular vehicle. Have a certified technician take a look to properly diagnose the source of the leak and fix the problem.
