whining noise and kept adding fluid, after replacing pump , i am still having problems with noise and air bubbles
It just occurred last last (11/16/15) while driving my daughter to a concert. Notice the steering was getting hard to turn. Was able to get home, barely turn were very hard to maneuver; by the time I got home the power steering fluid was completely out. Bought some this morning and did a self diagnostics, the leak is fortunately in the hose but coming from the bottom somewhere. Does anyone know if there is a recall on 2013's or am I going to have to take this a garage and have to pay out of pocket? If paying out pocket, how much is this going to cost?
The power steering line has gone out 4 times in three months. I have replaced the line twice and patched twice. I never do it myself but let a a local mechanic or friend take care of it for me. With the last patch job I jacked up the car and took a look for myself. I noticed the way the line is rubbing right against the main exhaust and this where the leak is. I am no mechanic but I would think there should by some type of divider to prevent them from touching. Any help?
Loosing power steering fluid in my 04 impala can't pin point to we're it's leaking but did notice it's all wet on passagner side on the engine cradle and getting on my pullies
I've had this hose replaced in a recall in 2011 now I'm having the same problem again will the dealer fix it again or is it my problem.Car has 140,00 miles.
Power steering line leaks out fluid. Power steering goes away. Can drive car...but is difficult at slow speeds. Pump is ruined. Costly repair. Has now happened 3 times in 2 years. Have been working with my local garage going to chevy dealership to try and fix problem. I have never had this happen with any car I have owned.
Started to leak power steering fluid. I found that it was leaking near the engine oil filter. The power steering fluid cooling tube was rubbing against a wiring harness and eventually produced a small leak. Was very hard to find and very confusing because the fluid was leaking from the harness and the spot where the leak was is out of site as it was above the cross member. Looking around now to see how much it will cost to fix.
The power steering fluid is getting hot and bubbling over fluid is pouring out of the hose.
Power steering pressure line rusted through and dripping onto sway bar and then onto exhaust...seems earlier than most reported
the last month now i have been having to put power steering fluid in 2 times a week,been leaking it out,today my husband and i looked under the hood and found the line,he told me to start the car and turn the wheel and fluid started leaking out from the line that has a connector.the connector is metal so clamping it im not sure will work but i have to take it in Friday to get it replaced...
Power steering leak pump making won't cover it. I am going to have a buddy fix the hose and hope adding fluid quiets the noisy pump
Power steering fluid leaking. Was fixed & it stopped for 4 months, and is now leaking again!
Was driving and heard a grinding noise. The futher I went the worse it was. When I reached home the steering was hard and it looked like there was not fluid. The power steering fuild holder looked like it was caving in. Have added fuild and it almost runs out going about 25 miles until needs to be refilled
power steering fluid is leaking BADLY from under my car. The steering wheel is hard to turn and I just had the pressure hose replace last year
