Default Power steerling cooler???

what does it exactly do? does coolant run through it? Im getting coolant from that area and was wondering if it could be from the power steering cooler. Coolant is in the middle not in front by the radiator. Is there any hose that runs toward the back that I need to check? 2001 pt cruiser

No

The NA PS cooler simply sheds heat from the PS fluid like a radiator.

If your getting leaking coolant, I would look at the two heater hoses and the heater core area.

Put a piece of cardboad under the car when you park it and see where it drips, then get under it and start looking.

How many miles on the car, how much coolant are you loosing? Have you changed any of the radiator and heater hoses?? Maybe time to do some PM on your car if you havent tackled the hoses.

I'd love to help, but reading your posts, and the "grammar" you use, I think I just got a brain tumor...

Olive, welcome to the Forum. Looks like you are used to texting, we are NOT used to reading that. Try English!!!

I think we can translate ... in a pinch.

I'd take the car to a mechanic and see what's up. that is to say, they need to put it on a hoist and peer up to see where the leak is occurring.

It came from the radiator over flow can it filled up and puked it out the side. Think it was do to a bad radiator cap.
