Power Steering Leaks
How to Find a Power Steering Leak
With most car oil leaks, itâ€™s not too difficult to figure out what part is leaking. If youâ€™re leaking engine oil, then obviously the engine is leaking. If youâ€™re leaking transmission fluid, the transmission is the part thatâ€™s leaking.
Power steering leaks arenâ€™t quite as straightforward. Fluid could be leaking from the power steering pump, or the reservoir, or the rack, or one of the hoses that tie all the parts together. Stories abound of people who replace one part, only to find that the system is still leaking. So they have to replace another, and then another, until they finally find the part that was faulty. Itâ€™s an expensive mistake to make.
To avoid that problem, mechanics will often add a leak finder dye to the power steering fluid. As more fluid leaks out, the dye will highlight the location of the leak.
Finding and Fixing Power Steering Leaks
Thereâ€™s one way around the problem of trying to find a power steering leak. With a power steering fluid leak stopper, it doesnâ€™t matter where the leak is. The leak stopper finds and fixes small leaks, wherever they are located. And because it doesnâ€™t require you to replace any parts, it is far easier and less expensive than any other option.
A leak stopper canâ€™t fix every leak, though. It may fix most of them, but some leaks are just too severe. In those cases, you still have to find the leak.
Power Steering Honey solves your problem either way. Itâ€™s both a premium leak stopper and a fluorescent leak finder. The leak stopper will usually fix the problem, without you having to take your car to a mechanic. But if the leak canâ€™t be stopped, the bright pink leak finder will clearly identify where the leak is coming from. In either case, you save time, money, and frustration.
You can find Power Steering Honey at any of these chain stores.
