Ok, I checked my ps fluid level and I'm not loosing any at all, it's still bang on the max line, where I topped it up too months ago.
I didn't think it was ps fluid, the smell is wrong and is engine oil.
Something I forgot about that happened to my old mondeo till ps fluid was mentioned was that I had the bung in the rack drain pipe come out and dump the systems fluid onto the exhaust so I know what it smells like.
It was very spectacular, I was racing someone at the time and the exhaust was crazy hot, the smoke that suddenly bellowed from my car was insane!
was the leading car, the person playing catchup soon backed off when he couldn’t see past his own dashboard lol.
The fix was easy, I wound a bolt into the pipe and clamped it with a jubilee clip and just refilled the system
