Question type: Maintenance & Repair

changed the power steering pump three times, did all the flushing etc put new o-ring in
checked all hoses and reservoir for cracks and it still is dripping..cannot figure out why
there is still a drip!!!

1 Answer


Put on new hoses. Has to be leaking from there. Has to be leaking from one of the compression fittings. Have you been able to figure out the general area of the leak? Or is everything just covered in oil?
