hi guys...my boyfriend has been trying to fix my car and cant figure out what is wrong with it..his father is a mechanic and cant even figure it out.After a few minutes of driving smoke comes pouring out my right side of my hood and seems to be coming from the power steering.My bf has fixed a hose which didnt work and then some kind of gasket and that didnt solve the issue...any suggestions PLEASE????
Smoke coming from power steering on 2000 Dodge Stratus
I would initially be concerned that some sort of oil or fluid is getting onto the exhaust system (manifold, etc) and could be at risk for fire or damage. Smoke is a physical thing of course and should be easy to trace the source of. Do not hesitate and get the vehicle inspected by a professional soon, as some things are not worth risking.
