Hi I took my car to the mechanic and they told me the power steering pump is leaking. My question is, could the pump cause leakage, i thought it was the hose or the o ring was the cause of the problem. And they also told me that the AC is bubbling. I dont what that mean, what could be causing that? Do I need to change the hose for that too or is it something else. Thanks.

it is very important that you repair the steering wheel leakage because the alternator is under it so take care of it before it cause you more problems
Yes your power steering pump can leak as it wears out, And your AC system probably needs service as they need service every 5 years or so because water particles will freeze in the system over time and make your AC compressor work harder then it needs to.
I own a 92 sc400 with 67000 miles on the clock. My alternator failed because the power steering pump leaked fluid
on to it. I replaced the pump and the alternator. Later version of the SC had a deflector on the alternator to keep the fluid
from dripping on it. the alternator rebuild shop said it was not effective
