More than likely your power steering rack system has blown seals. You'll need to take it to a qualified mechanic for repair.

Thes have a weak point with the pump in the tank. It is under a cap under the rear seat, get someone to turn the ignition on and listen if no noise give it a tap and see if it whirrs, slacken a pipe on the filter and see if there is pressure, if not the pumps are available from factors or on line.

SOURCE: peugeot hdi not accelerating fully and oil leak from turbo

Change your engine oil along with oil filter because the same oil is used to cool down your turbo and any dirt means you're going to damage your turbo. Also check the diesel/petrol filter and replace it if not serviced in last two years. Check the hdi pressure (computer diagnose in a garage) because if it is not high enough you can't gain the desired acceleration. If injector seals are leaking then obviously pressure leaks. Clean your turbo sorrounding and check the leakage of oil. In solenoid area If its not enough to drip down or just a little amount that sits with dirt then don't worry (as caused by solenoid seal wear & tear) it has enough life to cover another thousands of miles. Find this solenoid and let it replaced. But if it is from your turbo fan then it doesn't comes out but goes directly in engine to burn with fuel and you can't even find a drop around your turbo housing. Best way is to keep your car serviced in regular intervals.

SOURCE: peugeot 407 2.0 hdi lots of black smoke when you

The reason for the black smoke is that it is not getting enough air to burn the fuel completely.It could be a blocked air filter,obstruction in the air intake system,blown turbo,hole in tube between intake manifold and turbo,or a fault with the fuel system and injectors.

My sister has a 2001 chevy malibu she keeps leaking power steering fluid already replaced the pump and both hoses what use can fix this proble?


Hello, I suggest you put a piece of cardboard under the engine area of the car and start the engine. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and than all the way to the right several times. Shut off the engine and look for any drips of oil on the cardboard. Any leaks should give you some idea as to where they are coming from.

First put something like paper down under the area of the leak. You will also need to see what type of oil it is.....black-oil; red-transmission fluid or power steering fluid; clear-power steering fluid; green/yellow-cooling fluid.....etc.

Leaking power steering 2001 renault megane cabriolet


OK... You see it under the car, right? Go in the engine and under it to wipe splashed power steering fluid off the surfaces. Next, put white paper towels under the areas of the engine below where the power stearing pump and hoses are. Run the vehicle at idle and turn the stearing wheel left and right while someone looks under the engine and back to the hoses and stearing pump on top. Yo might be lucky and see spirting from a hose or fitting! If not there should be dripping onto the paper eventually. Turn off the engine and look for streams running down those hoses. Follow the streams upstream to the leak or leaks. If they are from cracked hose, chamge both hoses. If they are from a seal in the power steering pump, replace or rebuild the pump.

My power steering fluid was empty, i just filled it back up. so i'm assuming it is leaking somewhere. Where do I start looking first?


I would start by watching closely at the hoses. That is the most common cause of power steering leaks.

Hyundi accent 1.3si 1997 3dr clucth has gone in it but i mangaged to get it back home i checked under the car to see oil leaking not engine oil or steering(manual st) its leaking (as you look at the car...


mcdevito75 here, By Clutch I figure you mean a manual transmission 3 or 4 speed. but in any case you see oil leaking for the right front of your car. True, engine oil and Power steering fluid if leaking would be on the left side of the front of your car. The only other fluid on the right side of the car from the front is Brake fluid, I'll bet your clutch is power assissted and the fluid is leaking out of the booster to assist the clutch and thus the clutch won"t work. See your local auto repair shop and have them check it out for you.

I keep losing power steering fluid from resvoir and when the fluid gets low a loud widing sound accurs. What should I do?


You must have a leak somewhere. The whinning noise is coming from the pump. They make that noise when they are out of fluid.

Are you seeing any puddles or oil drops on the ground under your car?

A power steering resevoir is't very large so it won't take very long or a very big leak to run it out of fluid.

There aren't that many parts to a power steering system either.

The leak would most likely becoming from a hose, a connection or from the power steering component cylinder or box.

Power steering fluid leaking.


With the engine switched off. Go under the car and clean of all the fluid you find. Now start the car and turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock. Switch off the engine and go under the car and you should see the area of the fluid leek. With this information you can then decide how to tackle the repair.
