Power steering fluid is leaking Inspection Service

Power Steering

If you suspect a leak from the steering assist system, it’s probably because you’ve begun to hear a whirring or siren-like sound from the steering pump as it runs low on fluid. You might already be topping up the fluid reservoir as its level drops.

Or perhaps you’ve seen spots on the garage floor or parking spot, and determined that these are not simply oil leaks from the engine. The position of the drops will be very similar in either case, but the smell and consistency of hydraulic fluid and oil are distinguishable by experienced mechanics.

Common reasons for this to happen:

Fluid can leak from several places in the steering system. The following 4 areas are the most common sources of leaks.

  • Power steering pump: The power steering pump is driven off the car’s engine. Pump seals can become damaged due to contact with dirty fluid or they can become fatigued from thousands of miles of use. 


  • Power steering hoses: The lines that run from the pump to the steering rack, or gear, are another possible problem area, particularly where the high-pressure hose mates with the metal fittings. 


  • Power steering rack or gear: The steering rack itself can lose fluid from its own seals. 


  • Power steering cooler: To complicate matters, some assisted steering mechanisms have coolers, which bring additional plumbing and potential for leaks. These coolers are often mounted in the front of the car, where damage can occur.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the power steering fluid leak, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How it's done:

The mechanic will check the entire power steering system to identify the source of leak.

How important is this service?

Have the car inspected promptly if you spot a steering system leak. This issue demands detective work to determine exactly what needs to be repaired, and something like a steering rack replacement is serious work. Book a mechanic to perform a thorough diagnosis before the steering system incurs further damage.

Mazda CX-7 - Oil/Fluid Leak - Houston, Texas
Friendly service. John was very knowledgeable and diagnosed the problem with my car without adding lots of extras to pad the bill. Straightforward and showed me where the problem was. Previously, I was told by another mechanic the repair would be more than double what John estimated. Extremely happy with the service I received and will be using them for any future car issues.

From before I got out the car to greet John, I could already tell how great of person he was . Then he began to provide insight on what was going on with my vehicle

Jeep Grand Cherokee - Oil/Fluid Leak - Carmichael, California
Anthony was great! We are very happy that we chose to go with this company instead of the overpriced and slow service we get from the Jeep dealership. He was on time and did the job just as expected. He identified a couple of other things that need to be done before the problems get worse. We appreciate having a technician give us direct feedback regarding our vehicle, rather than a service advisor (salesperson) that we've had to deal with in the past at the dealership. We'll be booking the addtional services very soon and will definitely request Anthony again now that he is familiar with our vehicle!
