Is my car leaking power steering fluid? I check the power steering fluid level when the car is cold, and the reservoir is completely empty. But there is NO PUDDLE underneath the car. So I put more fluid in. Then I drive my car, and check it again when I get home. And it's still full. Then I check it the next morning, and it's gone again. What's happening?

Do you

Get the car on a hoist and inspect the rack for leaks, the steering boots may be filling with oil, they would leak if that was the case, it must be going somewhere I would check the rack first.
