    Going to have to 'see' where it's coming from. Have it hoisted at a shop to find the leak.

    Could be the return line clamp, as hose goes into the bottom of the fluid reservoir.

    OK someone help this old man figure out something; When did General Motors turn the engines around so the engine faces the drivers side. I can only remember them facing the passengers side in 1999, how did the power steering pump get mounted on the drivers side where the transmission is, could it be a transmission leak or am I getting old and crazy, just trying to see what goes first, when your mind goes, as if to say I have one. LOL

    One reason I didn't make any suggestions about where it is! But hopefully a repair shop can find the leak with it on the lift.
