    Talking Engine Leak

    My engine has a leak, Im 80% sure is the power steering fluid. I have to re-fill the resevoir numerous times, could be wrong about this but I need help.
    I re-fill maybe every week or week n half.

    If the PS fluid is low that much it has to be going somewhere. Any visible signs on the pump/rack/drips under the car after sitting for a while? Do you have a power steering cooler? Haven't had to put a drop in mine since new. TTT for you.

    man i have the exact problem and i cannot find it. I am burning something, sometimes it smokes alot especially when i make slow sharp turns. Especially when i am pulling into my garage. Everything else is fine, but i always have to refill my ps fluid also. Anybody have any ideas?

    I go out to sea so much that i have not had a chance to lift the car up.
    I will do this next weekend once i get back in town.

    I would inspect the high pressure hose closely!!! It will be the hose with "crimped on" fittings and not just hose clamps if you didn't know which one I was talking about. Also look for dirt and dust collecting on ANY fittings or hose-ends.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    I'll look at it when i get back to dry land. When i've looked, it seems to be coming from under the manifold or below it. I changed my oil about two weeks ago and had the car up then. I looked at around the head to see if it was the gasket, but no signs of anything there. I really could not see where anything was specifically leaking from. I would have dug up into the car but where i was at they are strict as hell. So i went ahead and bought some jackstands.
