What part of my power steering, could I be having an issue?

Asked by Jan 09, 2015 at 08:34 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I go through a bottle of power steering
fluid every four days. I have also put in
six bottles of Lucas stop leak, it will last
longer than the cheaper brand, but am
still losing fluid like crazy. I will fill my
power steering resivour in the morning,
and is completely empty at night. I
never see any fluid on the ground. Even
after I fill up the resivour, it whines
most of the time. What could be the
issue?

Inspect the hoses and pump. Where safety glasses and look at them with car running and someone turning the steering wheel all the way from one side to the other. You should be able to see it leak then
