I went out to my car and noticed all of my power steering fluid was under my car. ( Mind you I stopped only for a moment and returned to the vehicle) I looked for the leak and could not find it. I refilled the reserviour and no leak. I started the car and here the steering whine so I turn the wheels all the way to the left and right. Shuts the car off and out comes the fluid through the bleeder hole located on the cap. I don't know why this is. Can some-one help me.
Do you

The only way to properly bleed your power steering is:
1. Jack up the front of the car ( so the wheels are off the ground)
2. With the car running
3. Turn the wheels back and forth 4 times (that means turn the wheels all the way to the right and all the way to the left that's called one time)
4. Turn the car off
5. And repeat the upper procedures
