Just keep checking the oil, and power steering fluid to see which one keep going down. Or get under it to see where the leak is, or bring it to a shop and get it up on a hoist to investigate where the leak is coming from. Gotta know what it is before fixing something.

thanx il use ur advice and take it to a workshop and ask them to investigate where would be best as per cape town areas?
