I was driving today and felt an odd vibration and whirring sound in the power steering each time I made a turn. When I pulled into the driveway I noticed the engine was smoking and was leaking some sort of fluid or oil. Any suggestions?

The power steering fluid level seems to be OK.

I have a 2005 forester by the way.

Air entering the power steering system creating a bubble causing the whirring sound.

You need to inspect your entire power steering system. The fluid levels may not drop until after it's happened for a while.

Thanks Noximus. Garage says I'm going to need a new steering rack which unfortunately sounds expensive.
