Steering problem
2000 Buick Century 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 62970 miles

Two days ago I had no problems whatsoever with my car. Then there was a sudden clunk somewhere in the front end of my car. I took it to a local mechanic who replaced The sway bar/sway bar assembly. The mechanic called and said that the bake linehad snapped. The total was $514 to repair.
He stated that I should watch for a power steering leak.
Two hours later there was a large pool of pink fluid under my car and I can't steer my car.
My concerns are first. How much can I expect to pay for repair.
second. Since I had no problems before did the mechanic cause the brake line to snap. And the power steering to leak?
Is the power steering leak something I can fix at home or is it a major repair job.
I am a senior citizen on a fixed income.

Do you
have the same problem?

What is interesting is these problems rarely occurr at such a low mileage. I've seen brake lines rust to a point that they burst, but that is usually the result of a vehicle sitting especially in a grassy area.

What is leaking on the powersteering?
