The other day I was just randomly checking my fluids, and realized that my PS fluid was low and filled it up to where it should be. A day later, I see some PS fluid on my garage floor, thought it might have been some overflow, so I wipe it off. Fast forward to today, I see some more on the floor and I see it on the front sway bar too. What could this be? And what should I look for?

Mine was leaking from the line that runs off the bottom of the tank heading towards the crappy OEM cooler. Just hop under the car and check around there. I added hose clamp around the line where it was weeping from and it's been holding ever since.

Yea, Ill def check that out tomorrow. It reminds me that I recently ziptied the cooler even tighter to my FMIC recently, maybe thats it.

Yeah mine is going the same path once spring is here and it's not so cold in the garage.

Noob question, Where is the power steering cooler located, I also have a VERY SLIGHT leak, and think this might be my problem also.

It's right behind the front bumper. Looks like a long u-shaped metal hard line.
