Ok, so this morning I was going to work. I see some smoke coming out of the hood scoop so I pull over and see that there is a small hole in my turbo coolant inlet hose. I go home, take my gf's car.
I come back home, replace the hose, go to drive the car. The steering is whining and being jerky and blah blah. I check the power steering fluid reservoir and it's pretty close to empty. I fill it, turn the car on and go for a drive.... half way around the block it goes to crap again. I pull over, and refill it with the car off. I turn the car back on and go check the fluid level and it's all but gone!
WTF is going on?!?! Any suggestions? I checked the lines coming out of the reservoir and they all seemed to be tight and sealed. I see the fluid burning off by way of the smoke and the interesting smell.
What should I do at this point?
Also, is it safe to drive around with the fluid gone? Is it gonna damage anything?
