Re: EL 6 - Power Steering leak causing low battery ?
Keep in mind,
your power steering pump is one issue, the capability of your battery is another.
E series batteries tend to last 12 to 18 months. The engine bay is rather hot, which is not battery friendly! I replace my EB's with that time frame!
Also is the condition of the leads supplying the starter and ancillary systems..they MUST be perfect, otherwise you will get ODD tranny and engine behaviour.
Having a pump leak onto an alternator will MOST certainly exacerbate these problems!
