Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My 2004 Santa Fe has had a slight power steering fluid leak for a while. I've just been keeping an eye on the fluid level and filling it as necessary. Yesterday the leak became a river and the reservoir is completely empty. I'm pretty sure the hose needs to be replaced and we're planning to do it ourselves this weekend. How difficult is it, and where can we get directions?

Not with a diagram. Clean all the hoses and the pump so that everything is easy to see. Start the engine and get someone to put a little pressure on he steering. You should be able to find the leek.

Power steering leak


Can't tell from here but your only options are the rack & pinion (if equipped) PS hoses or pump. Sounds like the rack or high pressure hose. fill the PS pump to it's level while running, have someone watching under the hood while you turn the steering wheel hard from side to side (all the way) & see where you leaking from. Good luck

The power steering fluid in my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe is low and I can hear an unusual sound when I drive......can I use ATF instead of power steering fluid


Have the steering checked to find
out if it is leaking

Only use the correct fluid in your
owners manual

No manual stop by a dealer and ask the techs
in the shop

Power steering pump in noisy when first started when cold, 2004 santa fe 3.5, has 62000 miles


Try flushing the fluid,which you should be
doing every 3 years
Add a bottle of Lubgard for power steering or
what ever the dealer has
Use the correct MFG Fluid

Eventually you will replace the pump,
when you can no longer stand the noise.

Then steering rack most likely is about to fail
from not changing the fluid and is causing stiffness
and high pressure thus the noise

My 2002 Santa Fe v6 has developed a power steering leak at the point that all the oil from the reservoir dried out and every day must filled up with new fluid. What should I do?


Bring it to the garage ASAP to prevent damage to the system.
because then it becomes very expensive
let them repair the leak.

Orange fluid leak (most likely power steering fluid)


Check your hoses around your power steering resevoir, you might have a pin hole leake in one of the hoses. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level. As long as you keep fluid in it you won't burn out the pump.

Sluggish steering - 2005 Toyota Sienna


You probably do have a power steering leak. Check the fluid again, it's most likely low if you are having an increasing problem with it. As the fluid is drained slowly through the leak it allows air bubbles to enter the system and cause it to become sluggish or sticky. Get the leak fixed asap so you don't spend a huge amount on fluid and keep an eye on the fluid level.
