Title:

Power Steering fluid leak. Moaning sound

Text:

A few weeks back my 97 Toyota Camry V6 3.0 Litre started to make a moaning sound which I attributed to low level of power steering fluid. Topping up the PS fluid reservoir stopped the sound and it was fine for about another 2 weeks and it started happening again. I topped it up again and it was fine for a week and then sound returned and the reservoir was empty. I am now having to top up the fluid daily. I assume there is a leak in the power steering hose or it needs to be replaced altogether. I would appreciate any help or guidance on how to resolve this problem.

TIA
