Power steering is making noise and a little hard to turn wheel when truck is not moving. It started when wheather got a little cooler. Do they have a filter that can be replaced and do i have to remove pump or just reservoir to do it?

Leaking power steering or transmission fluid vehicle was fine until hard freeze last night could it be weather related. I'm not sure which one it is due to colors of fluid being so close. But steering is now making squealing noise.Power steering is on the right side of vehicle fluid is leaking in front on the left side. So I'm not sure which fluid is leaking.

Heater core? My girlfriend has been running water through her cooling system for almost a year instead of Dex-cool. Now she is leaking water underneath the vehicle and the passenger side floor is soaked through! I think the heater core is to blame but, do not see fluid dripping from under the dash area when vehicle is running. And the floor seems to get wet even when car is not running. Will the heater core leak when the car is off? And, is it possible that the fluid is running down the firewall


Ok most cars you wont see a physical drip because the box is sealed to the firewall it will run out the drain hole the same as the ac if bad enough they will leak down the insulation right to the floor board running pure water will cause rust but ra ... 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

Have a 1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon. Coolant fluid leaks out under engine unknown origin near rear offcenter driver side. Not waterpump, lower radiator hose. Can't pinpoint exact location or problem. Fluid leaks out as fast as it can be filled by way of reservoir while engine is shut down or running. Under hood filled with steam when hardly moving in a parking lot. Parked, checked, found leak under vehicle. Are freeze plugs known to blow randomly? Cracked block? Estimate on fix?

I own a 1999 Ford Expedition and it is pouring antifreeze from the bottom of the vehicle. I have inspected the radiator and both top and bottom radiator hoses and they are not leaking. The amount of fluid that is leaking emptys the resavoir in a matter of minutes. Is there some type of pan that houses the radiator fluid when it is not in the radiator itself? Any suggestions on where it might be leaking from if it's not a busted hose or radiator?

While driving my 2005 Saturn Ion, I noticed a 'banging' sound when turning and braking. I returned to my driveway and noticed there had been a leak under the front end of the vehicle. I thought it looked like power steering fluid but checking online I find that this car does not used p/s fluid. Is the noise and the loss of fluid related? Where should I take my vehicle where I can trust the repair man? I live in Spring, TX


You car most certainly does use power steering fluid. I recommend you take the car to the closest Saturn or GM dealer. It may cost you a little more but you will get a warranty and know it is fixed right. ... 2005 Saturn ION

I think my son hit something to cause the transmission fluid to all leak out...there is a stream from my house to where the vehicle quit and a puddle underneath...i see where to check the fluid, but not where to add fluid to the vehicle.

I bought my 1999 Lincoln Continental as a second vehicle. Drove it home with no apparent issues. The man I bought it from told me that an O ring needed to be replaced on the transmission pan and had a slow leak which I could see (very slow). Well now two weeks later I've only driven it a few times and the leak is very bad. It now leaves trans fluid from traveling down almost the entire under carriage, smells like something is burning when running, and whines now even with full trans fluid replac

My 2006 Uplander started to blow smoke from the left side of the hood yesterday. As I got out I noticed a trail of black fluid where I drove in, and it continued to leak out the bottom of the vehicle. The rad fluid and oil levels are all fine, power steering fluid is low. I never had any warning lights go on, and did not loose power steering while I was driving. Any suggestions would be VERY greatly appreciated!

I have a small leak at two connectors/pressure reduction valves on the lines to the rear drums.These connectors/pressure valves are located in the midline of the vehicle under the windshield wiper motor. I have tightened them multiple times as the leak appears to be at the threads, but they never seem to be loose. I am going through about a pint of brake fluid every three weeks.


Try replacing the o-rings. often if the o ring is damaged it wont matter how much you tighten them they will still leak and you dont want to tighten them to much because then you run the risk of streaching the threads or rounding them off. ... 2000 Saturn Ls 4dr Sedan

I have a fluid leak in my 1996 Ford Taurus, v6 duratec engine. The leak appears to be coming from a metal line (and possibly a 2nd metal line located directly below the first). Both these lines are located directly above what appears to be a power steering line. The lines (all 3) are in a tight spot visible when I peel back the mud flashing located above the driver's side front wheel. Without removing the rad protector and cover, or the mud flashing under the front of the vehicle, I don't quite

Vehicle is losing coolant but doesn't seem to be leaking when parked or steaming out when running. After driving for an hour it's 2 or 3 quarts low on fluid. When the fluid level is full the car is making a sound about 18 inches in from the back of the glove compartment that sounds similiar to the squeek that a leather car seat makes as it shifts foreward past the seat next to it.

Good morning. I have a 2001 Buick Century. I had to slam on the brakes a couple of days ago. When I did the car shuddered quite a bit and when I applied the brakes again the pedal went to the floor. I limped it home and looked under it and saw two puddles which I assumed were brake fluid. Initially I suspected the flex hoses but on further inspection both were intact and the leaks were closer to the center of the vehicle nearest the master cylinder. The brake fluid resevoir did not run dry at th
