What causes power steering fluid to leak?
Several small puddles 1-2 inches in diameter, about 6-8 inches back from the front bumper on the right, near the left side and near the center of the front end of my 2007 Town and Country Stow and Go.
If it is indeed Power steering fluid, either the reservior is cracked or a hose. Are you sure it's PS fluid and not brake fluid trans mission fluid or oil?
Pale pink when cleaned up with a white paper towel. Doesn't feel oily or greasy on my fingers. Would brake fluid leak be that close to the front. Would it be coolant?
Trans fluid is red, PS fluid is also red if your vehicle uses ATF. I'm not sure what fluid your vehicle uses as the PS fluid. Your best bet is to get under the car or hood and check where the leak is coming from. Also check the PS reservior , trans fluid, coolant to see if they are low....http://www.carcarekiosk.com/video/2008_Chrysler_Town_and_Country_Touring_3.8L_V6/power_steering_fluid/check_fluid_level
How do you tell what level of Res? It is a solid metal with no level markers on it. Small plasic neck about the diameter of a nickel where cap attaches.
it is a closed system, all of them . not gonna leak unless pressure inside gets higher than normal or there is a fault in the system . this sounds like trans fluid or power steering and at those locations sounds like where trans fluid lines go into radiator. check with clean paper towel to highest point where no more fluid, then down toward the front. leak is on that arc and or spinning off a moving surface . wipe dry and see where it starts to get wet again , if not, travel some in the car and check again, you can zero into the spot
to chek power steer fluid, look down narrow opening to ring at botton of fill cover .. full at that interior ring , low if below it ...
