Watch our What is Leaking? video to help determine the type of fluid leaking from your Elantra if you are unsure. Power steering fluid is typically clear, pink or red in color and is oily to the touch.

A small power steering fluid leak can make your Elantra hard to turn.

We recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves when dealing with any engine fluids, including power steering fluid.
