Q: Power steering pump leaking

asked by on

The power steering pump is leaking.

A: The model of vehicle is missing on this one...

The model of vehicle is missing on this one. The most likely cause is the pump shaft seal or the reservoir to tank seal. Otherwise, the lines could be leaking. I recommend having a qualified mechanic inspect your vehicle, locate the power steering fluid leak, and have your issue repaired.
