Hey guys im sure I have to fix this ASAP my stang is leaking something I looked wear I parked it the first day I got it and nothing was there so it must have just started...

ok so i cant tell where its coming from its dripping onto the frame then dripping off its been sitting there for about 2 hours maybe and its a decent pile maybe 2x2 inchs its clearish purple maybe

Its not oil that was my first biggest concern and I checked it, it is still fine any suggesstions

I tryed I cant see anything im going to go wash it REALLY REALLY good tomorrow (going to check all fluid levels before I leave) im going to go to the car wash and use degreaser and use that powerful washer to spray alot of the dirt and everything off maybe I can see then where it is coming from

Im really worried about it, I know earlier when I was dirving all the stuff was fine oil was fine engine stayed cool etc

FOUND IT!!!

Ok I dont know how or where but its my power steering I remember it whining earlier and it is low so how do I deal with this use power steering fluid with stop leak see if that stops it?

I would rather keep it but if I dont have the money I will have to get rid of it ok well I would guess it would be the lines because it doesnt look near the pump i will wash her tomorrow (the guy i bought it from had it stored in a shack that was muddy so the bottom is muddy) I have no idea where the lines go lol any idea?

Mine leaks a little too, no big deal, just check the lined going to the bottom of the pump they could be lose or have a small hole. Don't be to worried mines been like that for 6-8 mths now. One end of the lines go to the pump and the other go towards the bottom drivers side of the radiator.

Most likely it's not the pump, maybe the seal where the hose screws in the actual pump, of it could be a slightly lose hose calmp.

The steering wheel be hard to turn, just check it every 4-5 days so you don't burn up the pump. When you start hearing it whine loudly add some till you can get it fixed.

It's cheaper to replace power steering parts than to buy new manual stuff.
