Q: Power steering fluid leak

asked by on

I need to locate a power steering fluid leak.

A: The best way to locate a fluid leak of any ...

The best way to locate a fluid leak of any kind is to first clean the entire area that the leak is suspected to be coming from. Then allow time for the area to dry or use compressed air to speed the process and run the car. This will narrow down the area that the leak is coming from. Certain fluids like the power steering can have a dye added to the fluid which glows under a true black light and this can make finding a leak very easy. A proper inspection should be carried out by a qualified technician like the ones here at YourMechanic in order to locate the location of your leak.
