    2008 srx power steering

    So just got a used SRX V6 awd yesterday get home and its dumping all the power steering out.
    Filled up the tank drove it for a while same thing. Thinking it maybe a rack and pinion. Anyone else
    Ever have this problem? It would be nice if it was just a hose but thinking not. What kind of a parts bill am I
    looking at? My fiancé is a mechanic so cheap labour

    Pull the LF wheel and the small flexible splash shield so you can examine the PS lines that go to the PS fluid cooler. You'll probably find your leak in that area. If it's the metal line, a section of oil resistant hose (3/8" ID) and 2 good screw clamps will fix it (if it's the return line). If it's the pressure line, a bit more work is involved. Let us know what you find out, and

    So upon further inspection it seems to be the power steering return hose. Much better then the rack and pinion. Loving the cadillac other wise! First time owner.
