Hey guys,
So I just bought a 92 MTX and it drives but has power steering spraying onto the exhaust, kinda a fire hazard for driving home 8+ hours. I’ve got a spot to work on it, any suggestions on the problem/what I need to get to fix the leak?

check the lines under the power steering reservoir to see if they are leaking
if its not there, you have to get under the car to see where the leak is coming from

Looks like it’s spraying the down piping on the exhaust pretty well with power steering, coming from directly behind the engine between the 3.0 and firewall, I’ll have pics in a little bit here

From the position of the leak, sounds like it might be the pressure hose. Peel the insulation back from the manifold and take a look. Could also be a loose line connection on the rack. The other common leak is from the end seal in the rack, passenger side, but that leak would be on that side, not in the middle.

I have had the lines to the cooler rub each other to the point of a leak.
