THANK YOU Furious !
I Will look around in your DIY FAQ Forum !
Once again Thank you !
I would recomend you just getting all the new hoses, it will be some 250 on parts, but is just a bolt on tipy of job, and you dont get any leak for some good years..

But first figure out where the leak is. Spray some degreaser and hose off (clean the area including the P/S fluid reservoir exterior). Then, keep an eye for the seepage/leak area. The possible leakage areas are:
- Gasket on the P/S fluid reservoir cap.
- Clamps on the hoses (from and to the reservoir and to the rack)
If the P/S fluid hasn't been changed in the last couple of years, you may use this opportunity to change the reservoir (remember that the filter is in it), hoses, clamps, and new fluid.
I think my power steering pump just went up I'm ten miles from home what should I do. There's been a drip drip leak, took it to mechanic, he said he tighted up hoses and put in stop leak and filled the res. That was two days ago. Getting in this afternoon and started whining and you know that out of fluid feeling. Didn't see a puddle underneath but a line of fluid that could have been mine when I parked. Sound like a pump gone up to you. I'm sorry but I see ATF everywhere in the owners manual. Is that Auto Tran Fluid or another type and where can I get it and is the best thing to do is just take it directly to the mechanic's or to the dealership? Thanks in advance.
