Power Steering Problem/Leak
 
So went and got an Oil Change today, Instantly the mechanic comes out to me and tells me to go bring my car to the dealership ASAP. I have 16k Miles on my car and told me I was basically running on Zero Power steering fluid and my engine looks like it should have 50k+ miles on it from it leaking all over the engine. So brought it in to my dealer and have to bring it back tomorrow to get it checked out. :mad0260:

Warranty should cover this but also thinking that they said my engine looks like it should have 50k miles on it from being damp or whatever they said should I complain about this to my dealer?

If the engine has that much liquid on it, how did you never notice it? Also, did you not feel or hear something from your PS? Not sure the dealer will do much about the "dirt" factor but you can try.

That's what I thought I never saw any power Steering fluid where I park it in the garage... I was my car all the time and have never been told anything was wrong until now but when I brought it in they said it's def leaking.

Did they show it to you?...I don't think the power steering reservoir would hold that much...and then not have it make any noise....hmmmmm

Blehner, I would suggest getting all the information you can on this. Make sure things are being handled properly and make sure they're doing what they need to. Hopefully this is a quick stay at the dealer for you and you can get back to enjoying your vehicle. Let us know how things go for you.

I took a look of mine. My Power steering fluid is on the Min level too

I went to the dealership today. The Power steering pump is leaking. Changed for a new one. Is this happens to many camaros?

It is excellent that your dealership was able to diagnose an issue you were having. If you would like to express any compliments for your dealership, I would be happy to document it in our database for many departments of GM to see.

This hit me this morning. Started car up no power steering. Got out see a puddle of power steering fluid on the floor. Have not had time to look close at it. At to take a back up car to work.
Guess they did make them better in the 90's. 98Z28 still going at 250,000 miles.
Not near the issues as I have had in the 2010 less than 4 years and 65,000 miles.
Its sad.

Hello Chrisrp454,

Sorry to learn of your power steering issue. I see you mentioned not having time to look at it yourself. Have you considered taking the vehicle in to a dealer for diagnosis? If so, I will be happy to assist you. I would need some information which you can private message me. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks,
It looks like the line(hose) came loose on the power steering box.
It might not have been tightened good when last worked on.
So I won't blame this one on the car :).
Waiting for dealer to look at it.
Chris

They still have not had time to look at it. What 5 mins to tighten it and refill!
You think since its a good chance is their fault they could get to it!
