Sudden loss of power steering fluid out the blue. It was fine from the day I bought it at around 97k miles then it just went dry in a 25 minute drive. I filled up the power steering fluid and in less than 48 hours it was almost empty again.
The line blew out while we are on vacation, we have not been able to fix it yet. we will have to wait until we get home, but definitely puts a damper on things. Thankfully we were towing behind an RV, so we were not stranded.
