Power steering leak

I have a power steering leak coming from somewhere but I can't find it, the top line looks dry and the pump/bottle is dry, but I crawl underneath and the ac pump is soaked with fresh fluid

What lines do you have? Oem or aftermarket?

I would suggest have a buddy help you out with diagnosing where its coming from. Have your buddy turn the steering wheel back and forth while you inspect the PS system. The fluid might be spilling out while the system is under pressure. If you have the OEM PS lines I suggest getting them replaced as they are apparently a common point of failure. I had a leak in my system coming from the high pressure line on top of the PS pump. I bought a set of steel braided PS lines from JTSVP and replaced it in a few hours. They're a bit expensive but I have no regrets.

I don't think the leak is coming from the lines, might be from the reservoir itself

Another one falls prey to weak OEM PS lines.

I'm getting the jtsvp lines only not from tony but from another stand up member that lives a a ways out but close enough to give a man a hand , IronAffliction! He's gonna sell me his but I have to drive up to where he lives to get them and since I was planning a trip to Seattle this weekend anyway it's like killing to birds with 1 stone ! I'm starting to wonder if this thing is worth keeping around since it's a unicorn of vehicles , nothing available at a local dealer or parts store

Well I picked up the lines this past weekend and Iron shipped me the fittings on Monday , I received them today only to cross thread the one that goes in the pump itself ! Fml ! I ordered one from summit and I'm debating on adding an attachment to extend the fitting so the hose is not a bitch to install
