    My powersteeering fluid was leaking all over the rightside of the engine. I took it to
    pepboys for a diagnostic and explained to the mechanic that i had to add fluid many times
    and he believed it was a major overhaul instead. I decided to take vehicle to another
    experienced mechanic and he found a leak in the Powersteering Pressure hose and a
    crack in the fluid retainer. Both were replaced and engine cleaned a bit costy $ 800.00
    parts and labor. My vehicle is running great with NO leaks.
