I have had a leak for two years. I always thought it was an oil leak becaue im adding oil every week. I brought it to the garage and they said im burnng oil an the leak is from the power steeing pump. Is that possible when there was fluidstill in the pump and never had to refill it.

It would have to be a very small leak. I doubt it was what you were seeing hitting the ground. It only holds less than a quart and will start making a lot of noise if it loses even 1/3 of that.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

If you are adding oil (engine oil?) every week, it's probably leaking onto the PS pump + not the PS fluid at all easily fooled as both are a oil.

Don't quit, find it and fix it AND know why it started to leak in the first place IMO most are from wear or neglect,
