Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon
I saw the leak under the car from one of two metal lines that run right in front of the firewall in the middle of the car. The leaking line bends up to the bottom of the steering column. By steering column, I mean the part I saw turning from under the car when someone turned the wheel for me. Thanks.

I just found 1 of my power steering leaks in my 1990 toy pickup. My high pressure line has a hole in it. I used a florecent die kit to locate the leak. You can get it at Autozone.

it sounds like tour power steering rack and pinion may be leaking this is what you call the actuator rod.

It's not the wheel bearing! If your sure it's not brake fluid, but power steering fluid you have a leaking power steering hose. Take a rag and wipe down both hoses, fill the reservoir and with engine running have someone turn the steering wheel all the to the right and then left while you watch for leaks. The hose that comes out of the bottom of the pump is the high pressure hose, and the hose that goes into the reservoir is the low pressure hose. You can buy replacement power steering hoses at a auto parts store or a Ford dealer. I would replace both given the age of your van but you can replace just the leaky one. Use a flare nut wrench or open end wrench and remove the hose(s) from the steering box first and have a container to catch the fluid that wil drain out of the reservoir and hoses. Refill the reservoir and turn the steering wheel back and forth to remove air bubbles (engine running). Check fluid level and check for leaks at the fittings.
