I have a 2005 chevy trailblazer. Last night I drove simply around my block to pick up my kids in the rain. I noticed that the power steering was moaning when I turned the wheel but the power steering was working fine. Get up this morning & low & behold The power steering fluid when I added it about a quart lasted less than 5 min before dispersing to the ground. If it helps it looked foamy when on the pavement as it was shot out that quickly
I dumped the only 2 quarts of power steering fluid I had in it to get my kids approx less than 1/2 mile to school. While there I could see power steering fluid literally dripping(was more like a river) coming off of my radiator and actually dripping down my air damp. I am going to attempt to get it off the ground & take a look since it possibly sounds like a pressure hose. My problem is this, I have no car to get to an auto parts store for the next few hours, I have tons of oil but no more power steering fluid. Is there any substitute I can use to help me find this leak? Also would you have any idea where I could get a diagram of the power steering pump & it's hoses, it looks like a maze under the belly with everything been smashed it tightly some even sideways? Thanks for any help.
have the same problem?
