After such a good day I had to have a problem... :headache:
So Im driving home from work tonight..loving the new pads and rotors and I smell this burning. So I stop cut the truck off and go to looking. I open the hood and there has been almost a fluid explosion in there. Now I know a little looks like a lot but this mess is everywhere on the drivers side of the engine compartment. It was also leakin all over the ground. Of course my first thought was brake fluid..I figured I had messed somethin up earlier today but I checked the master cylinder...full. So my next thing is checking all fluids...smelling each one because there was no doubt of the smell of the leaking fluid.
I got it narrowed down to power steering fluid..its a little low and it kind of pulsates when I turn the wheel.
Now what are the possibilities of what could have happened here? I think there are only two hoses, a pressure and return hose..Im hoping its just one of those.
Its just wierd because there is fluid all over the cap, its almost like too much pressure got built up and it just all blew out of that vent on the cap.
Are there any common problems?
