The attached pictures will show why I'm seeking help!
I'm fairly new to the forum but reading posts for a couple years now and have learned a lot from this community.

My power steering reservoir will not hold fluid any longer. There is a small seep from a vent hose. I'll post more pics tomorrow when I lift her up.

P.S.
Where do I jack my car from center to place on stands?

If it's under one of the front wheels, I forget which one it was, but it may be the steering rack. Get under your car with a flashlight and check if your steering rack and pinions are wet. Steering racks usually go bad at around 70k miles just like everything else does if you don't do preventative maintence.

When you say under one tire do you mean under or near?
