The redish orenge liquid you see is likely power steering fluid.

The power steering circuit is leaking somewhere.

Inspect/have the circuit inspected looking for busted hose, loose clamps or steering rack leaking.

Depending if the leak is severe or not you can try to add power steering oil in your power steering reservoir up to the right level indicated on the stick. Put the cap in place, start the engine and turn you steering wheel few times gently going from one extremity to the other and reversely. After few times you should/could have recuperated power. However, eventhough it works, for your safety fix the problem as soon as possible.
Hope it will help

Losing RPMs while Steering to the Right


Check for wiring that moves when you turn the wheel. The harness may be tangled in the steering linkage. This could be under the car or under the dash by the steering column. It could even be the ignition switch wiring.

I have a leak in the power steering column. What will happen once it all leaks out?? can I still drive it?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If it leaks out, the steering wheel will be hard to turn. Plus, you will then have to replace the entire steering pump if it goes dry. You need to keep an eye on the level and keep adding fluid as needed. You will still need to get the leak fixed. If you are running low on fluid, the steering wheel will be harder to turn and you will hear a winding noise when you turn the wheel.

My left front tire makes a rubbing or grinding noise when I drive. When I turn the wheel either way it also rumbles and bangs. What is causing this?


You could have a bad wheel bearing or a bad CV joint. Inspect your CV joint by turning the wheel all the way to the left and inspect the rubber boot for any signs of damage and see if there is any play by grabbing the CV joint and try to move it.
The other way to check is to drive the van slowly in an empty parking lot turning the wheel to one side and then the other. Listen for any abnormal noise and see if you can feel anything lose through you steering wheel.
If there is any signs of damage to the CV joint like oil leaking or movement. Replace the CV joint as soon as possible, and try not to drive the van till you have the CV joint replaced or the wheel bearing. Total CV joint failure will cause you to have the van towed to have it replaced. Try to drive it to the Garage to save you the tow cost.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan mini van makes loud grinding noise when turning and continues while driving straight. This noise happens every now and again while simply braking. I was told at one point that my cv...


If your getting a grinding noise when turning it's probably in the power steering. If you leaking fluid you have a hole, more then likely in the high pressure line or the rack and pinion is bad.

Power steering


quite often ford steering pumps make noise, but if it is hard to steer, the fluid is probably low. First check underneath to see if there is a puddle, if there is then find and fix the leak. next, start it and get it to normal op. temp., while idling, pull the pump plug/ dipstick, check the level, add fluid if necessary. Steer the wheels back and forth a time or two, then check the level again. Double check underneath, visually inspect for puddles/wet spots. does the problem change after these steps? Theres not likely any water in it, therefore freezing isn't likely. Hope this helps.
