Was on a trip, and the steering started to skip, the pump making noise, I had to stop.
Saw the reservoir completely empty.

Long story short, I tried adding some fluid into the reservoir, but that lasted only 5 minutes before it was empty again.
There was no way I could drive home, so I got it towed back home.

Even when I add oil, the pump makes noise, and the steering is bouncy. I have a feeling the leak is before the pump.
What should I look for tomorrow when I undo the bottom pan?
Besides the obvious as "look where it is gushing oil?" :)


Thanks!

Went under, cleaned a little and looked around.

It's dripping from a boot of the steering rack. Looks like a seal.
Not much I can do from home, I am afraid, so off to the mechanic.
