1998 Kia Sportage 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 58,000 miles
Does PS fluid flow through the inside of the idler arm? The idler arm on my power steering in a 1998 Kia Sportage is full of power steering fluid and the fluid collects and drips down off the bottom of it. It has been this way for about a year and just recently my power steering resevoir finally emptied out. I inspected the hoses and they seem fine. From what I can see, the fluid is only around the idler arm. Does PS fluid flow through the inside of the idler arm? Is it possible that the idler arm is the cause of the leak?
