In this video clip, I will show you how to check for power steering fluid leaks. When you take a look at your power steering reservoir, you will notice that there may be some hoses here, the hoses on the very backside of it. When you are checking it for leaks, you want to make sure that those connection points on that hose to the reservoir are good. You want to check that hose to make sure that there are no brakes or that the hoses are not broken. If you are driving and you notice that your steering wheel feels really loose, you might want to check to make sure that your power steering fluid is full. If you top off your power steering fluid and the next day it is low again and you have to put more in and the next day you have to put more in again, that could be a good indication that there is a leak somewhere in the system.
