Power steering pump leaking
As the title says I just found out that my power steering pump is leaking from underneath it somewhere. It happened out of now where. Went to make a turn and the steering got really hard and it started making a loud whinning noise. So I checked the fluid and there was barely any in there. Was able to make it home, bought the fluid from the dealer and filled it. Still made the whinning noise and while looking at the pump noticed fluid coming from the bottom leaking slowly down the side.
So My question is... It doesnt appear to be hard to replace the pump, but before I go and do that is there a gasket behind it that might have gone bad or am I just better off replacing it? Where is a good place to get a new one from? Dealer or online?
Thanks in advance.
