Please help. My husband and I have been racking our brains. We have replaced the power steering pump, the return and high pressure lines as well as the gaskets. The leak seems to be coming from the area of the lines but since everything is brand new we can't figure it out. It leaks slowly when the 05 Sierra is parked but when driving it leaks faster. Any ideas would be helpful

It is your steering rack and pinion housing, it is made of a very soft metal. Even with new fittings on the lines, they will not seat once the metal is at the state of leaking. Had to replace the rack on my 99, 04, and 2008.

More information needed to accurately help. The last eight of the vin would be helpful so we can see what we are talking about. Is it rack and pinion, recirculating ball steering box, hydroboost etc?Extra cooler in front of the radiator? Too many variables with out the vin.

      Love my 2019 Denali but couldn't believe my eyes when i came out this morning and saw water on the back passenger side seat. 6 month old 65K truck and it leaks!!! Did a quick search and found others with the exact same problem and the exact same location. Will be calling service center in the morning.  Here's another one I found. I took videos and pics if anyone is concerned what to watch for.
       
      My son is allergic to mold for me this problem is larger than most. Attached a pic of the headliner, can see how soaked it gets.

      Hey Guys, I have a 2005 Chev 1500 Work Truck model, 4.8L v8, auto, 4x4, tow package. 
      I tried a search on here for my issue, but found only people posting the same issue as me and no one actually posted back that something fixed the issue (that I could find)
       
      My power steering starts failing when my truck is warm, the longer it runs, the less the power steering works. It gets to the point in the summer that it's basically like manual steering and I have to crank the wheel so hard that my steering wheel starts to get a bunch of play in it. 
       
      Someone said that it could be the power steering sensor, but I just don't know why it would start working fine when I start up the truck and get worse as I drive more? 
       
      Has anyone had this problem and has found the cause for it? The pump whines when it's struggling too, it gets louder/worse when the wheel is harder to turn, but it's not a bad sound, just a labored power steering pump thats making up for something not working. 
       
      Any help is awesome 
       
      Thanks

      Hey all, I will start from the beginning here. Purchased my new 2017 Sierra Elevation Edition in February 2017. Drove it off the lot with 6 miles on it. This is my first new vehicle so its been a little discerning to me that this has more issues than any used car I have owned before. 
       
      A few weeks after owning the truck, my microphone stopped working for my phone calls and the onstar stopped working all together. My OnStar module died and they replaced it with a new one. About 5 thousand miles later, my trucks radio screen started randomly going black, turning off all sound, then coming back on again. It would resume where it last was, phone call still intact or radio still on the right station. This went on for about 2 weeks then my dash lit up and chimed at me, the radio turned off like it does I get a warning of a Power Steering Failure. I call my local shop and get it in there right away. The drive in, the power steering worked just fine. 
       
      They said the reading came back as High Voltage, they updated the computer and sent me on my way. Fast Forward to 3 weeks later, my truck starts doing the radio off again but this time the dash lights all shut off too. I can't be sure but it seems to do it when its wet outside. It did not have problems after I was in the shop but it was also dry outside. I also noticed when this happens the voltmeter spikes high.
       
      I am dropping my truck off again the Tuesday after Christmas. Does anyone have experience with this before? The shop told me last time they have never seen this before. 
       
      Thanks!
