power steering leak.
I had my 09 f350 for 3 days and it developed a leak. the fluid was red so originally I thought it was tranny fliud. while i was driving it to the dealer i began to notice a slight humming nosie, I dropped it off and they explained that the power steering line needed replacing. (which explaines the noise since the pump was low on fluid).
I picked it up last night and being a little paranoid i kept i close eye on the same area where it was leaking before and low and behold it still was dripping (not a bad as before). It was coming from the bottom corner of the wheel well area. I partially removed the well cover and looked around up in the cavities and didn`t notice anything. I cleaned up the corner of the well cover (since its a kind of felt and i thought maybe it absorbed some fluid) and placed a turkey pan underneath just in case. when i woke up this morning there was some fluid in the pan, just a bit but it was there nonetheless. I dropped the truck off again this morning and i`m beginning to become frustrated.
since when did they change power steering fliud to a red color?
