leaking powersteering fluid and making load noise while steering, why?
on 2002 Kia Optima

can not operate vehicle
not safe

Asked by for the 2002 Kia Optima
the noise you hear is probably the ps pump because it is low on fluid check and repair leak and refill with fluid
do you think this is a costly repair on a 02 kia optima?
it all depends where the leak is coming from
I agree with goodguy, no way we can see the problem to give an estimate.
