The dealer diagnosed a power steering leak but did not do a full diagnostic to determine leak's origination.
The power steering system includes the pump, lines and rack and pinion. The leak could be anywhere in this system. The best way to determine where the leak is coming from is to clean the vehicle and add dye. The dye will be visible at the source of the leak. A trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, can diagnose the leak’s location and replace any failing components.
