Where did the power steering fluid go?

    I have a 1993 3.0 automatic Ranger. I had noticed a while back that there was a small amount of power steering fluid on top of the refil cap. I checked the fluid at the time and it was at the proper level. I dried the top of the cap and noticed it a few more times with fluid on top of the cap. The level was always at the right level until today. Once again I had a small amount of fluid on the cap, but the reservoir was nearly empty. I have not noticed anything dripping from the engine area and there's no big leaks on top of the engine. I would've of thought the power steering pump would be screaming with the low level of fluid, but there was no noise at all. What the heck is going on?:blink:

    Check your hoses, you may have a crack where it is seeping out, running down the line and possibly just burning away.

    good point Hooligan, you could be just burning up the oil.

    Well I checked every where and could not find any leaks. What I did do was replace the power steering cap and it seems to be fine now. The other cap was a little loose. Thanks for the replies.
