I have a 1998 Honda accord lx 4 cly five spend the power steering fluid is leaking. I noticed when the car was idiling it wasn't leaking but when I drove the car it left two lines of power steering fluid about two feet apart. I replaced the power steering pump and o-ring then drove the car around the block but it still left two lines of power steering fluid two feet apart. I also noticed that when driving the car it doesn't leak until I come to a stop. Can you help me with this? Read Answers

I am looking for a reputable auto repair & maintenance shop that doesn't charge as much as the local Mini dealer for repairs. I love my Mini and want to take good care of it ... but the dealer prices are ridiculous! Any suggestions for the Winston-Salem NC area would be greatly appreciated. Read Answers

Good afternoon! My name is Raychel Lean and I'm a journalist writing an article about 10 ways women can make sure they don't get ripped off at auto repair shops (sexism has perished from so many places, but not apparently from garages.) I would therefore love to talk to a female car expert to get some perspective, tips and advice that I could include in my article. I wondered if any of your experts would be available to chat with me in the next few days? If so, that would be great. Give me a call or shoot me an email to let me know. My number is 305-335-7846, and my email is raychel.lean@hotmail.com. Thanks! Raychel Read Answers
