    I’ve got a bad leak in my power steering system, the fluid is now pouring out. Can anyone suggest a course of action as I’m a student and could only afford around £300 to get it sorted?

    Cheers

    Hello, and welcome.

    It really depends on where its leaking from what the suggestions would be. Could you put up a few photos or describe the leak in a bit more detail. It could be something simple or cheap to replace like a hose or not. If it is a hose I've had luck getting them remade for very little at an agriculture/industrial hydraulic place, pumps can be got from the scrapyard, as can the steering rack although fitting the rack can be a big job on the driveway.

    Probably is a hose has ruptured or a hose joint has failed as @jd1959 says.

    You need to find where it's leaking from.

    .......or it could be a completely different pipe.

    The return pipe developed a leak on my ATR and they're only £40. So before you start worrying about bills for hundreds of pounds you need to source or identify the leak.

    I think that has been said @Pottermus , he needs to find the source of the leak.
