    I noticed a pretty substantial drop in my power steering fluid reservoir the other day and topped it off before going on a few hour drive.

    Power steering pumps leaking from seals seems to be pretty common. I recently developed a very bad leak on my 2006 2.5 OB Limited. Doing some research, it seemed that many people have had the pump leak from the top elbow hose connection. My pump is leaking on the driver’s side face. This is...
