I was told my power steering pump was leaking, but I have no drips on garage floor. Service guy said it had a pan. Just wondering if it did or not. Haven't heard of this before. (Not noticed any change in steering.) Thanks.

    What he may be referring to is the splash/gravel shield under the engine compartment. Most cars have these now, and they will catch leaks and drips before they ever hit the ground.
