    Hello,
    I was backing up over a curb today, and when a steer tire hit the curb, it caused the wheel to turn suddenly in one direction and quite a bit of power steering fluid got ejected from a hole on top of the pump (pic). I guess it's some sort of overpressure valve. Enough came out that I lost power steering. I added fluid but it continues to come out this hole. Anyone know if something broke? Thanks.

    Service Truck? It won’t hold any PS fluid? Leaking that bad? Bummer
