So I have probably dumped a quart of power steering fluid into my car within the last month.

Is it a leak? Or does it naturally eat that stuff up?

I don't see any leak.

It doesn't eat it up... lol

Your leaking probably in places that you can't see, like under the intake manifold.

just be happy. I pulled into work today and my high pressure hose blew like a hooker on 3rd st. Pissed all the fluid i have all over the engine bay. That hose costs around 160-200 and is a pain in the ass to replace. At least your car still holds fluid ;)

Can you still drive the car without fluid in the power steering system?
Would not you damage the pump like so?

Running it dry is bad, but short drives to get it home will be okay.
