    Default power steering leak

    i have a powersteering leak and im wondering were the common places for it to start leaking is so that i can find it and if possible fix it without having to take it somewhere and i can just do it myself, from the drops on the ground it looks like its coming from the driver side up the the radiator, if that helps any lol dont know if there are any more lines anywhere else. i have tried to spray it off and see if i can find it but no luck its still too dirty, any help is appreciated

    You need to find out where it is coming from first. It could be leaking from the high pressure line or the low pressure line or the pump. It could be a fitting going into the cooler (if you have one), or into the steering box. It could also be one of the seals on the steering box. If you have hydroboost brakes, it could be one of the lines going there as well.

    Take it to a carwash and wash out everything you can see from the top and bottom and get it good and clean. After that, it should be a lot easier to find out where it is coming from.
