A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

    I start to see oil drips on the floor.it seems it is from power steering system becuase the oil level in the oil reservor is low.

    Power steering fluid leaks from hose. If fluid is low and vehicle is stopped suddenly, steering wheel has a vibration for some miles afterwards or until fluid is topped-off...

    Cost me a small fortune to get this fixed... Then the shop told me that they got the "smaller" OEM one and that is why it went out again! Then I had to pay for the redesigned one.... Really got taken for a ride at that shop...

    Obviously leaking. Always having the re-fill the power steering reservoir. Drip, drip, drip... About $350 will fix this problem. Don't recommend doing it at home since the entire system needs to be drained out before replacing the damaged hoses due to leakage.

    power steering left and right hose, pion and rack, tranmission service ,alignment. cost $1200 to fix. When I turned left it made noise.All internal lights went off on freeway. The check tranmission control module symbol is on during the trip (22 miles). Some other mechanic told me I need to replace arm control joint and bushing. but mechanic said the oil is leaked.
