    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.
