A Saab in it's natural state...

So I went grovery shopping today. About halfway home I felt the wheel lose a little bit of resistance, if you will, and it took a little more turning than I remembered to go around a corner. Thought nothing of it and it was soon forgotten. We get home, put the food away and my dad tells me to move the car because he wants to wash the truck and it's in the way. Simple enough, right?

I back the car up thencrank the wheels to the right, and move foreward. That's when I hear a really weird sound coming from the right front. Interesting. Pull up to where I need to be, leave the car running, and open the door. That's one funky sound, better tell dad about that and... ooh... something smells warm. Shut the car off and look under the right from corner. This is what I see.







Trying to find the leak now..

Power steering fluid leaks suck.

Clean the lines and pump as best you can and begin looking for a leak or crack in the lines.

Well, my dad thinks I turned the wheels to the end and held it there. Frankly I wouldn't be suprised. However, I think it goes deeper than that. I found this where the car was originally parked:



I dunno, we'll see I suppose.

Look at the lines around the reservoir. On the aero it's lines are a bit loose and it is leaking a bit, so check there. Its just an idea.

Well, I haven't actually been told what's going on with it, which is good.

However, this is what it looks like now. Like I said, dunno what he's doing.. I'm just bored with a camera
