rebuild or replace gearbox.
most likely your alero's power steering pump would be leaking from the power steering reservoir, but as an alero owner i have had to replace the whole pump because the pump shaft snapped on me
excessive noise even though belt tension is good, or when power steering fluid is leaking out the shaft seal.
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 pulley shaft front seal is where your leak is, I believe. I hope that takes care of your problem.
The steering intermediate shaft connects the end of a column to the rack. The shaft can have more problems in a pickup than in a car.
How do you change the steering shaft in a 1990 Jeep Wrangler?
Axle shaft, steering shaft, drive shaft, distributor shaft
If you mean dripping out of the of the tranny where the shaft slips in then the leaking is it
That would be the nut that holds the steering wheel to the steering shaft.
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.
Most likely cause is that the intermediate steering shaft has a bad Joint(s). Replace the steering shaft and you'll be good to go. This shaft is connected to the steering gear box on one end and the steering colum at the other.
no, the intermediate steering shaft is completely independent of the power steering fluid operation. Make sure that when you remove the shaft, you DO NOT move the steering wheel. The clockspring inside the wheel is very easily damaged. no, I don't see why.
If the steering wheel spins freely but the wheels don't turn, the steering shaft (which runs from the steering wheel, into the engine compartment, and down to the steering box) probably came apart. Usually there are one or more joints in the steering shaft, to allow it to angle around obstructions in the engine compartment. It may be that the shaft separated from one of these joints. Find the steering shaft in the engine compartment and see if it's continuous all the way down to the steering box. Also see if when you turn the steering wheel, if the shaft turns also. If it doesn't, then there's a problem with the steering wheel's mounting to the shaft. At the steering wheel, the shaft is usually cut with a bunch of little notches, which the steering wheel hub slides onto. If these notches have gotten stripped, then the hub has nothing to grip, and the wheel will spin free without moving the steering shaft.
The output shaft seal has failed and transmission fluid is leaking by, and that would explain the transmission fluid appearing there.
there is but it just puts lube in the intermediate shaft
Not an answerable question. Missing need option and specific identification of what steering shaft. There are at least three.

Remove the mower deck. Remove the phillips head screw at the end of the shaft underneath the mower. The releases your shaft from the bootom of mower. Remove steering wheel and remove shaft. Replace parts as needed.
The steering column is connect with a shaft that runs from rack and pinion to steering column. A short shaft sticks out of rack and pinion and is attached to shaft with 1 bolt that goes thru the coupler. Usally hid under a boot that goes around the shaft.
You REPLACE the WHOLE THING! Shaft, box and all!
The rotation of the steering shaft drives the turning of the wheels, and buses and large trucks have wheels which are significantly more massive than cars' and light trucks', requiring more torque on the steering shaft to turn the wheels. The larger steering wheel gives a mechanical advantage in turning the steering shaft; a longer moment-arm from the application of force by the driver on the steering wheel results in a larger torque on the steering shaft from the same force applied.
