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.
What will happen if u I added power steering fluid to a leaking power steering pump
The fluid could be leaking from the pump, hoses, or steering rack. Wash the steering system, then you can see where the leak is coming from.
Noise may be heard in a power steering line when the power steering fluid is low. Low power steering fluid may occur due to a leaking power steering pump in most cases. If the pump is not leaking, then the fluid needs to be added.
my power steering fluid on my 2002 Saturn lw300 started leaking off and on but now i have to put put fluid in everytime i want to drive it.
power steering or transmission
There could be many causes to a car leaking power steering fluid. There could be a hole in the reservoir, or the seals could be worn or broken.
sounds like transmisstion fluid or power steering.
That's automatic transmission fluid , or power steering fluid , so it would depend on where it is leaking from
The fluid is over filled.
trans fluid,power steering fluid,dex-cool antifreeze
yellow, brown, red????
You need to replace the power steering pump. If it is leaking, it is going out.
Grinding, rough steering, fluid leaking from seals.
If it making a loud squealing sound when you turn the steering wheel, the power steering fluid level is low. The reddish fluid you are seeing on the ground is power steering fluid. It is probably leaking and that would be why the fluid level is so low.
It's probably tranny fluid, Power steering fluid is usually clear.
it sounds like your power steering fluid is low,,,,, or your power steering pump is leaking (which means it needs to be replaced)... I hope it turns out to be low steering fluid. If the power steering fluid is low, you can have someone add fluid, but keep and eye on whether or not that fluid level is dropping or leaking. Good luck to you.
your power steering fluid return line, also known as your power steering low pressure line, may have a hair line crack in it and need to be replaced.
The steering pump fluid is low (usually the pump will be noisy at this point) or the steering rack is leaking. In either case the fluid is low due to a leak in the steering system.
You really have to just find out where it is leaking and what it will take to repair it. GoodluckJoe
The power steering fluid is leaking because somewhere in the power steering system there is a leak. It is possible one of the seals on the steering rack has worn out. That would be a good place to start. It could also be coming from a leaky seal on the power steering pump or from one of the lines.
broken hose to the power steering reservoir or the rack on the firewall is leaking badly or the reservoir has a hole in it.
If you have rack and pinion steering, the steering gear will need replaced.
reroute the line around the power steering cooler
please be more specific is it leaking engine oil, coolant, transmission oil, brake fluid, or power steering fluid where is it leaking from ?
Yes, if the fluid is leaking on the exhaust or the belt is slipping badly.Yes, if the fluid is leaking on the exhaust or the belt is slipping badly.
