Power steering hoses are leaking
2001 Buick Regal 80,000 mi,
The PS hoses appear to leak under load, however the aerodynamics of the air flow around this part and the placement of this part on the engine creates a wide distribution of the fluid, the exhaust manifold as well as the exhaust connection to the muffler system is close to this area this creates a fire hazard. Bad engine design.

Heavy leak, hard to pinpoint exact location due to the large area where fluid can be seen while underneath the vehicle.
