If the power steering box is leaking below the adjusting nut, it is like that the seal is faulty. Replace the seal on the power steering box.

check the power steering and brakes "mini-radiator" that hangs below the radiator. usually gets hit with all the weather, can be replaced easily.

Check power steering belt, check power steering pump, check rack for leaks

The problem is probably in the steering gear. Clogged passages in steering gear. Leaks in steering gear.

could be several places, power steering hose, rack and pinion (or steering gear box) or power steering pump.

Hard power steering means there is little to no fluid left in the system. The power steering system should be flushed and checked for leaks.

it is on the steering column below the steering wheel

Usually the leaks are at the high pressure line or the return line of the power steering pump. Tighten all the lines at the pump.

Synthetic power steering fluid from the dealer only. Do NOT mix drugstore power steering fluid, ATF, or non-synthetic fluid in your steering system. Damage to the seals/gaskets could result in leaks.

If the power steering fluid leaks out the steering would become very stiff, and perhaps "lock" if the car were parked.

You can, but you risk overheating your power steering pump and rack. Not good for the seals and they will leak for sure after a while.

The most common reason for power steer failure is fluid leaks. On power steering pump, you should check behind p/s pulley for leak at the shaft. On the rack and pinion(steering gear) check rubber boots at both ends and check for leaks where steering shaft is connected to rack and pinion input shaft. Check pressure hose at crimp fittings for leaks.

The power steering fluid goes below the intake manifold in a 1992 BMW 325i. This is where the power steering reservoir is located.

Checking power steering fluid level Checking belts and hoses Checking the system for leaks Pressure testing the system Bleeding the system

User Avatar

something wrong with power steering. check for leaks. The power steering pump may also be broken. but whatever the cause is, it's a good bet it's power steering problem.

The Power Steering Pump & Reservoir are below the Alternator, by the Firewall, on the Passenger's Side.....

The most common power steering pump leaks are at the line connections or behind the pulley at the shaft. The line leaks can possibly be repaired, but the shaft seal leak could be better to change the pump.

User Avatar

The adjusting pulley for the power steering is found on the side of the engine under the power steering pump. Loosen the bolt that keeps it tight and the belt will have some slack to slide off the pulley.

I have a 2000 Buick Century costom and I replaced it but it leaks what could be wrong

The power steering pressure switch, on a 1993 Chrysler New Yorker, is located below the power steering pump. The pressure switch is attached to the power steering reservoir mounting bracket.

check your power steering level and see if its low or check for leaks on power steering almost looks red like transmission fluid

User Avatar

On the power steering pump. From the left side of the car look down below the alternator near the firewall.

User Avatar

the power steering reservoir would be to the front left (green casing with black top) this would be you facing the car from under the hood. the hose below it should route you to the power steering pump. it is also recommended to use ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) and NOT power steering fluid in the reservoir (from personal and professional experience, it leaks far less)this is what it would look like... but this is NOT the same car, but the part in question looks identical)

In replacing the power steering pump on a 1993 Toyota Camry wagon with V6 engine, make sure to replace the steering pressure hose and clamp also. The leaks on both the hose and the clamp are the cause of the broken power steering pump.
