Power steer fluid leeks into alternator and causes the car battery to become dead.. cannot keep car running. It runs fine when charged but after you turn off engine it will not start..occurs daily... car will not start unless new battery or alternator is replaced, then we are back to same problem1-2 months later..Alternator will be full of fluid
