Car started making a ot of noise whenever you turned the steering wheel. Put power steering fluid in it and about 3 days later the same thing happened. Only drove approx 5 miles since the fluid was put in. Have not fixed yet but is going to replace the hose and see what happens.

Not fixed yet. Noticed the car was leaking what I believed to be power steering fluid. At first, turning the wheel would cause a loud grinding noise, then I couldn't turn the wheel at all.

Has not been fixed yet. Seems to be leaking out quickly... Very loud noise and hard to turn the wheel. Makes the engine smoke from leaking. I used prestone power steering +leak a few times...(a couple bottles) and so far it has stopped leaking. $4.97 a quart a walmart .
