My powersteeering fluid was leaking all over the rightside of the engine. I took it to
pepboys for a diagnostic and explained to the mechanic that i had to add fluid many times
and he believed it was a major overhaul instead. I decided to take vehicle to another
experienced mechanic and he found a leak in the Powersteering Pressure hose and a
crack in the fluid retainer. Both were replaced and engine cleaned a bit costy $ 800.00
parts and labor. My vehicle is running great with NO leaks.
power steering hose that runs behind transmission and above the transmission pan, has a pin hole and leaks while motor is running, rust is visible where it leaks,
