NEED HELP- weird shaking-fluid spill

It's been ages since I've been here, but I guess that's life sometimes

Ok, I was out shopping with the wife today, and get back to the truck and the battery is too dead to start the truck, although it was trying. So, I pushed the truck out of the parking spot, straighned it out, and popped the clutch going forward. Pulling into our driveway, started to feel a weird shaking...

At home, I opened the hood and found a bunch of fluid, and I can't figure out where it came from. Any help you can give me is appreciated since this is my daily driver.





Thank you for any help since this is my daily driver...

it is power steering fluid, happens when you turn the wheel with the engine off, fill it and drive it slowly turning the wheel from lock to lock several times, then shut it off, let it sit 5 mins and repeat. this will get the air out

Is this the cause of shuddering, or is that something else that I should be worried about?


Thanks for the quick replies by the way.

Yes. Work the air out and it should stop.
