power steering leak
#1302606 - 08/17/06 10:00 PM

today i noticed alot of power steering fliud on the ground and the pump is making that wonderful noise the only thing is there is no fluid around the pump itself and i was wondering how hard it is to change the lines because i think that one may be leaking any advice would be very helpful as well as a ball park figure on how much it would cost to do

Check the lines to the cooler in the front of the car. There are two lines that you will be able to see under the passenger side of the car. From there you can trace the lines back to the reservoir and see if you can find the leak that way. Otherwise you may be hunting for a leak around the steering rack itself.
