’97 Outback Power Steering Pump Leak…
’97 Outback Power Steering Pump Leak….
I’ve searched the forum about power steering but didn’t see anything about leaks. That’s good.
However, my ’97 is leaking and forming a small puddle on the engine below the PS reservoir. Is there a common failure mode? Could it be the reservoir? This has a round metal one that is on top of the pump. I see that pumps don’t come with it. How does the reservoir attached and seal to the pump? I’m thinking that may be a good place to start since the pump seems to work fine other than leaking. Anybody…….
