sounds like you may have a crack in one of the lines,or the front of the pump has a seal that could be leaking, depending on the style of the pump it could be the seal on the tank side leaking on the pump.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy trailblazer is leaking power steering fluid

What the seal leaks do is soften the rubber, not the best long term solution. Try taking a wrench, the correct size, and snug down all the fittings, not to tight. If it is coming from, as you described, down through the boot it could be a seal. Wipe down the unit well and watch as you have someone tune the wheel back and forth. The engine should be running to build up pressure, so be very careful not to get run over. Apply the emergency brake well and chock the tires.

SOURCE: 2001 jetta Power steering fluid leak

A power steering system has a rack,fluid tank with hose to pump,pump,high pressure in hose and a low pressure return hose to tank. I f you say theres no leak at the rack that only leaves those other conponents. I would check the pump its self and the high pressure hose where it leaves the pump. It may also be leaking at the tank, where the hose leaves to the pump because it is only fastend down with clips and they can come loose or the hose can split. hope this helps

If it "RED" in color, like p/s fluid, and coming from the BOOT, then its your p/s rack assembly.The unit has to be replaced and alignment reset. ..also check the HOSES they are prone to leak also...hope this helped..GL

SOURCE: bad oil leak 98 dodge neon it looks like from

There is an opening on the top of your timing cover sealed off with a rubber plug. Remove the plug to gain sightful access to inside your timing. But first I suggest you clean your engine first ot all grease and build up caused by your leak. In diong so, you will have a clearer idea of where the leak is actually coming from. I just rebuilt a 2000 neon, so if you need some info on anything , I have your info.

Well don't know exactly what vehicle you are working on but it is very possible that if is a car then the inner seals on the rack-n-pinion are worn out causing the fluid to leak out. If it is the rack seals leaking then you will need to replace the rack-n-pinion. Good luck.

Sounds like you've lost hydrolic pressure. Did you check the 2 hoses connecting to the power steering pump? I take it, you lost power steering fluid also right? If it was leaking badly, it was the high pressure line that blew, if not, it was the return line. You can have a hose made for you for pretty cheap to replace the hose.

To look for a fluid leak, first you should have the car washed thoroughly all around the steering rack and the pump, then inspect it from the underside with a good light looking at the hoses coming from the pump to the rack, the couplings and the crimped unions of the rubber and metal tubes for leaks.
If the leak comes from a coupling, that may be a bad Oring.
For the defective hoses, you can choose from buying new ones or have them repaired in specialized shops that have the tools to make the crimped unions.

I recently replaced the plastic adapter on my 1991 cadillac deville power steering pump. The power steering worked fine for 3 days and then started leaking again. I can not find the leak any where. I just...

Unfortunately from previous experience as a master Cadillac technician I have seen the same issue several times. There is an "o" ring between the reservoir "plastic adapter" and the pump. Very difficult to pinpoint the leak. Most likely the "o" ring is either missing or cut. Even a small nick will cause a leak.
Hope this helps.
