    Question 1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Power Steering Fluid Leaking

    All,

    I have a 1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Truck that is leaking Power Steering fluid from a Joint attached to the chassis frame. I can not find out
    what is this joint called so that I might get a replacement for it. It has some sort of seal that is leaking and comes directly from the power
    steering fill tank. Please help me out with this one.

    Can you get a picture of where it is leaking from?

    Hello,
    can it be the power steering pump?
    Here is a picture, where you can find the pump in your truck:

    Can You see if it`s wet or not on the pump?
    Greetings Martin
