If it is leaking that fast you will be able to see where it is leaking from and what needs to be fixed. So what is your question??

My 1991 GMC Safari has been leaking power steering fluid since I bought the vehicle 6 months ago... I've been using the stop-leak fluid on it, but it's gotten worse. It was leaking a pint a month, now it's two pints a week. I can see that the puddle is on the driver side, but other than that I can't tell where the leak is. (Everything in the engine area there is black.) I'm also having trouble starting the car. Could the leaking power steering fluid be dripping on the starter and fouling it out? I don't know where the starter is on this vehicle.

How do I get the hose off for the power steering, as fluid is leaking and I can't get in there; I have the van on a ramp to get to it underneath, but it's too tight. Thanks in advance for your help!
