Q: Power steering leaking fluid

asked by on

My power steering is leaking fluid, and the wheel is hard to turn.

The first step is to identify the leaks. Most of the time it’s a faulty line, other times it’s the pump that is leaking, and if the pump has been run low on fluid, the pump may need replacing if damage is present. A technician in your area, like one from YourMechanic can help diagnose and repair your power steering problem.
