My power steering is from time to time

leaking. What could that be??

A leaking PS unit can and should be fixed. for slight leaks, there are additives available at car parts stores that might help. As for the sound, it might be caused by the pump straining from insufficient fluid, or it might be belt slipping because it's bad or too loose.

Yeah I want to know because I not only need to repair it but definitely want to. Hoping the issue isn't more than the car. That's my only fear at this point honestly.

Thank you for getting back to me so fast
