It started out by having a slow leak and I just keep adding fluid. Someone checked it for me and found a bad connection and/or hose. After that was fixed leaking almost stopped, I was only topping off reservoir about once every ten days to two weeks. Then it slowly got worse and eventually failed. I believe it is in the rack itself.I am still driving it but parking is a bear!
