    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    My 99 saab 9-3 is doing something really weird when I come to a hard brake or sharp turn & sometimes when I'm crusing at a good speed and just taking curvy roads, the fluid light will come on briefly and the ! indicator.

    What would be potential cause of power steering fluid to leak? Should I have to replace the whole power steering rack? I'm going underneath the car this weekend, please tell me what areas to look at. Is it certain hoses that could be leaking? Is there a diagram or write-up on this?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Let me start by saying I have little experience with cars, this is my second vehicle in my life, and I'd like to take the best care of it possible.
