Clean it off, make sure the level is full and see if it returns, if it does then you have a problem. May be just some spilled fluid from PDI or could indeed be a leak

Check your power steering fluid. The brake boost is powered by the power steering pump. I noticed a low power steering fluid level on mine soon after delivery, but could not figure where it went. The dealer just added more fluid. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a fine coat of oil and dust near the master cylinder.
The power steering fluid was leaking slowly from somewhere underneath the master cylinder, but it is hard to locate the exact source of the leak. It does not appear to be the fittings. My truck has 7000 miles, and was probably leaking when new (July 28). I called the local dealer, they said to bring it in at a convenient time. Based on past experience, I am scared to let them touch my truck!



Does anyone else have any experience with this problem?


Thanks,

Hi Eric,


I live in Lake Orion. Are you thinking of doing the service while I wait?





Thanks for all your help on both forums.

the only thing that will hold us up is the potential of a parts delay, where exactly is Lake O? isnt that S/E corner?
