Power steering fluid major leak - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Saab 9-5 2002 Aero...
Power steering reservoir wouldn't retain fluid, when turning wheel it 'screeched' drove home (10 miles), reservoir was empty. Issue occurred suddenly.
Thought it was the pump.
Replaced pump (properly, I think and hope).
Filled reservoir. Turned engine over a few times while topping off reservoir.
All seemed OK.
Drove car from friend's house to mine - about a mile - 3 90 degree turns a bit of a winding road, and when arrived, reservoir empty and a bit of smoke coming out from under hood. A trail of PS fluid followed me up the driveway, so don't think (hope) I didn't fry the new pump. Apparently a MAJOR leak.
Any ideas on where to begin checking? I REALLY don't want to pull the pump again, and can't imagine why I should.
