Hey I have a obs silverado and it has been leaking from around the back of the power steering reservoir for about three months now and i am getting tired of topping it back off every week. Im not sure where exactly its leaking cause its near impossible to see under it where the fittings are. I'm assuming the two hoses are low and high pressure?? It seems to leak more when its under pressure like when i turn the wheel at a stop. My question is what likely is leaking?? can the reservoir itself be messed up or is it one of the hoses? It looks to be leaking under the reservoir. Thanks in advance

yeah sounds like one of the hoses is leaking....You tried topping it off and having someone turn the wheel while you look at it? that would prob answer your questions for sure....

brake cleaner is fine, its probably the o-ring on the pressure side, but it could also be the return side which only has a hose clamp on it.
