this is a small leak, but I'm guessing its from a hose but I don't know which one. How do you check the hoses in a ford tauras.

    the fluid is clear, it looks like water.

    If it looks like water, does it feel like oil, power steering fluid? Was wanting to suggest a dye to put into the system to help find the leak, but we need to know which dye for which liquid. Are you adding any fluid.
