Cost me a small fortune to get this fixed... Then the shop told me that they got the "smaller" OEM one and that is why it went out again! Then I had to pay for the redesigned one.... Really got taken for a ride at that shop...

Small leak at power steering fluid
Drained the fluid, installed a new power steering reservoir, hoses, and clamps.. The reason I replaced the reservoir is because it contains a filter in the bottom, and they are not very expensive to replace. I think job cost like $50 or $60 dollars, and a few hours on a Saturday.. Easy Peasy.

Obviously leaking. Always having the re-fill the power steering reservoir. Drip, drip, drip... About $350 will fix this problem. Don't recommend doing it at home since the entire system needs to be drained out before replacing the damaged hoses due to leakage.
power steering left and right hose, pion and rack, tranmission service ,alignment. cost $1200 to fix. When I turned left it made noise.All internal lights went off on freeway. The check tranmission control module symbol is on during the trip (22 miles). Some other mechanic told me I need to replace arm control joint and bushing. but mechanic said the oil is leaked.
