Another possibilityThe above answer is correct and the first step to undertake. If this fails and the problem persists, you could have a pump problem. Possibilities are that the relief valve stick intermittently in the open position, a very worn cam and rotor assembly or a broken shaft.

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.

possible solutionI have a 1997 Mazda protege with a similar problem. The last owner thought the power steering pump was out because he had no steering. however the belt to the alternator was broken. I replaced this and the power steering pump began to work. However, it is intermittent and will stop working at the most inopertune times. I can only assume that there is a sensor on the pump that is going bad. Good place to start. .

Why has the power steering fluid level dropped on a 2003 Ford Windstar?

It is not uncommon for there to be some incidental loss of power steering fluid. I have added minor amounts of power steering fluid to my 2001 three times over the years. No more than a couple ounces at a time though. If there's more loss than that, start examining the power steering hoses and connections for signs of leakage.

Why would a 1992 vw cabriolet be hard to steer?

What would make a 1998 ply breeze grunt and moan after having power steering hose replaced and no air in the line never made noise before hose was replaced?

You need to bleed the trapped air out of the system. Fill the reservoir, start and idle the engine. Turn the steering wheel back and forth stop to stop. Just touch the stop, do not hold it there or you may damage the power steering pump. Do this 10 to 15 times. Power steering fluid that is a tan color or has a beer head contains air. Turn the engine off and let it sit 15 minutes or longer. Top off the power steering fluid and start the engine again. Repeat until the fluid looks normal.
