Right guys last night pulling out of my drive i heara hiss followed by much creaking...and get out to find PAS fluid pouring from the car. no sign of a leak and the drip was right beside the header tank.

I think the header blew its lid as there is PAS fluid all arounund it and on the soundproofing under the bonnet. Is this possible, if so why did it do it?

and as my nearest place for bts is 3/4 miles away can i use universal ATF as a temporary PAS fluid.

Top it back up and run the engine, turn the steering side to side, re top it up - see what happens.


Bets of luck, can't see it being too much.

pressure in a pas header tank :confused:

don't here that often.

have a look at the various pipes, after you have tryed what dave recomends check for blockages/kinks in pipe lines.

perhaps a one way valve somewhere thats causing the fluid to back up into the header tank under the pressure of the pump
