    Hi all , moved my 07 Auto v6 out of the driveway yesterday morn , and noticed a big puddle on the ground under front crossmember , wiped it all up and checked reservoir , all ok . This morning drove car around the block , came back , nothing no leak and steering fine ! . Just wondering maybe a relief valve got stuck and it piddled out ? , anybody got any ideas, cheers.

    Tighten the clamps on the return line, they can weep over time if not tight enough.

    Originally I reckon it was a PS leak , fluid looked a bit to clean for Trans , any how , mystery still unsolved but not leaking now !

    I think you had a visitor while you were a way, dumped the oil before you arrived and parked the car on top of it
