I don't know if anyone can help me with this but I have a problem with powerstering win I put the fluid in it's clear then two to three days later the car is making a noise the sounds like a remote control car when I turn. Then when I check the powerstering fluid it's very low and muddy brown, what can be causing this...:banghead:

Sounds like you MAY have a leak and/or a bad steering rack. I would check all around the reservoir for leaks and also follow the hoses out of the pump to the steering rack for leaks. Make sure you are using the correct fluid (refer to your owners manual or service manual). That's all I can offer for advise. I can say that if you fill it and it's low a few days later it's going somewhere but now the question is where... I'm not sure if these cars have a power steering cooler or not but if so that could be a potential leak source.
