I left my Bullitt (2K miles) in the garage for the weekend and returned to find ATF on the floor and the PS reservoir a bit low. Looks like a minor leak with ATF half way down the drivers under side. Anyone else experience this issue?

This may be a silly woman question but, doesn't ATF stand for Automatic Transmission Fluid? We have manuals. :???: :???:

Vicki,

You are correct about the definition of ATF, but here are few other details for you. Our manual transmissons use ATF for lubricant, as does our power steering, sooo, the name ATF can be somewhat misleading....

BTW: no leaks today, I think I may have revved too high and got some fuild past a seal some place. Monitoring continues

I had the same thing with my car the the rack was shot in it. Not long after I noticed the low fluid reservoir, my power steering started to make a horrible whining noise. Take your car in and get it checked out immediately.

Several people have had problems with the power steering pump here. I for one. It had very few miles on it when we noticed it starting to leak. Other than that, no mechanical problems what so ever! :grin:

My steering rack was replaced at +/- 4,000 miles. Losing fluid with no visible leak. Dealer said fluid leak was inside the unit.

Had a similar problem, but mine was brake fluid. Brake fluid leaking between the master cyl. and the firewall. they replaced the master cyl.. No problems since.

I had to have my rack replaced after approximately 17,000 KMs. The car had quite a loud whine coming from the power steering unit and my ATF reservoir was quite low.
