ALTHOUGH THERE MAY BE A LEAK IN THE HOSES OR THE PUMP RESRVOIR, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT A COMMON PROBLEM ON THAT CAR IS THE STEERING BOX SHAFT FAILS FROM WITHIN: THE STEERING BOX ON THE TOWNCAR HAS SEALS THAT FAIL DUE TO AN INTERNAL FAILURE WITHIN THE BOX. THE SHAFT MOVES IN AN OVAL PATTERN, NOT THE PROPER CIRCULAR PATTERN IT SHOULD, WHILE TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL. WHEN YOU FILL UP THE STEERING FLUID, IT HOLDS FULL. AS SOON AS YOU START TURNING THE WHEEL OR SOON THEREAFTER, IT USUALLY GUSHES OUT AS THE SEAL IS MOVED IN AN OVAL NOT CIRCULAR DIRECTION DUE TO THE WORN PARTS. THIS IS WHY YOU SEE NO PUDDLE UNDERNEATH, IT ALL GUSHED OUT TOWARDS THE ROAD SURFACE. IT RARLY IF EVER GUSHES UPWARDS. IN SHORT, MOST LIKELY YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE STEERING BOX.
