I start to see oil drips on the seems it is from power steering system becuase the oil level in the oil reservor is low.
Power steering hose that thy use as a power steering cooling leaks. It goes from the pump to the rack. The hose cost around $135.00
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.
Both hoses connected to the bottom of the pwr steering resorvoir were leaking at the connection,..solution,adjustable hose clamps. No leaks to this day
Oil leaked from the clutch on to my foot , dashboard breaks brake fluid on and off. Help,,,,,,,,""""""""",,,,,,,!,,,,,,,!!!!,,
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...
Steering wheel is hard to turn driving under 10 mph and the tank is leaking from the top..
Drained the fluid, installed a new power steering reservoir, hoses, and clamps.. The reason I replaced the reservoir is because it contains a filter in the bottom, and they are not very expensive to replace. I think job cost like $50 or $60 dollars, and a few hours on a Saturday.. Easy Peasy.
leaking power steering fluid found during an inspection II, had to replace power steering reservoir and hoses
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...
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.
