Why would power steering fluid be leaking from where the fluid goes from the storage by the steering shaft?

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.

What will happen if u I added power steering fluid to a leaking power steering pump

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.

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.

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.

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.

sounds like transmisstion fluid or power steering.

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.

That's automatic transmission fluid , or power steering fluid , so it would depend on where it is leaking from

broken hose to the power steering reservoir or the rack on the firewall is leaking badly or the reservoir has a hole in it.

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.

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.

You really have to just find out where it is leaking and what it will take to repair it. GoodluckJoe

If you have rack and pinion steering, the steering gear will need replaced.

Leaking power steering fluid on a 95 Chevy Blazer is a sign of a worn seal or a damaged hose. The most direct fix is to find the specific point of the leak and replace the defective components.

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.

We had to replace the rack and pinion in our 2005 T&C. The only symptom we had was the power steering fluid was leaking.

excessive noise even though belt tension is good, or when power steering fluid is leaking out the shaft seal.
