Q: Replace a power steering pump and the fluid boiling out the pump and still leaks.

Replace the power steering pump and the fluid boiling out of the pump and still leaks.

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, It is very uncommon for power steering fluid to boil. It may be more likely that the fluid may have air bubbles in it as a result of changing the power steering pump. Air bubbles in the system may appear to look like the fluid is boiling. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at the vehicle to determine what may be causing the power steering fluid to leak.
