Well i narrowed it down and found that the power steering fluid is leaking. There are 2 tubes that come out of that fluid container. One is large and goes straight towards the engine and the second a smaller one goes down and around like a loop to right infront of the front drivers side wheel. The whole tube is crudded up that goes to the bracket infront of the tire. So i was thinking about replacing it. If i did i would have to drain all the fluid. Now here is the question. What would be the best way to try to remove the air bubbles in the line when im done and where should i look for this tubing? Thanks guys.


THIS IS NOT MY CAR! HEHE

Just had the return line on my car replaced due to seepage. (sp?) Dealer parts and labor is in the neighborhood of $250. Clamps were replaced too. Second time I had a leak in my system. It would be nice to know if there are silicone type hoses that can be used here instead of rubber.

Also, you should make sure you have permission of the image owner before using his picture. We have had members pigeon-holed as image thiefs in the past. :lol:
