    My '98 Chevy Silverado has a power steering leak, i have wiped it up and looked for the leak but I can't find anything. Has anyone had this problem or know where it might be leaking from?

    MOst likely your high pressure hose from the back of the pump.. That is the weak link in the system and the most common place for power steering leaks.

    X2 what murdog94 said. Had to change my '96 Suburbans a few years back.

    X3 on that one! My 95's hose was leaking about a year ago. i didn't realize until i replaced it that it actually bends around on the inside of the frame. I guess its bent for cooling? Anyways, the metal tubing that sat in the framing was rusted away, but it's a quick, easy fix

    Also have seen the hoses start to leak at the crimp between the rubber coated braided line and the steel hard line.
