yeah, mine too... been like that for a long time... leaks thru the firewall, now the carpet is saturated, floor mat covers it, but I'm gonna have to remove the whole carpet and de-grease it when I fix it... it's a muddy, dirty work truck and I havn't really worried about it... priced the replacement assmby from Advance Auto Parts and they wanted well over $200 for it... probly do it this summer some time...

now that i think of it, mine was leaking where the brake master cylinder and the hydro booster bolt up together so i guess it was power steering fluid on mine as well.
