Default Power steering fluid leak

Ok so this is a problem I've had before I even parked the car for winter and need to fix it before spring time...there is power steering fluid getting sprayed on the underside of the hood and on the engine bay. Doesn't seem like it's coming from the pump...there isn't any fluid around the pulley or shaft. Could the pressure line have a pin hole in it? I can't see any leaks when the hood is open and car is running...but if I clean the engine bay and check a few days later everything is wet from the fluid again. Any help is appreciated!

I suggest having some one turn the wheels lock to lock while you watch for leaks.

It is possible you have a pin hole in the high pressure line.

Sound like vent hole on the cap.If so,its possible that the reservoir may be overfilled if you find no leak,my suggestion use dye and uv light at night if it comes down to that.


If the fluid is dirty change it.Be FOREWARNED the hose to the pump have fine threads, very easy to cross thread, or it may destroy the threads simply untightening, due to corrosion and teflon use

Definitely wasn't over filled...it leaked out till the pump was almost empty. I think I'm just gonna change the pressure line and the reservoir cap. I did a ford racing a/c delete and when I moved the pump up it was a lot of strain on the pressure line since non factory a/c cars do have a little bit of a longer hose. I will still have someone turn the wheel while I check for leaks. Just waiting for some nice weather. Gonna be getting almost a foot if snow in a few days!!
