Anti Freeze Leak/Power Steering Leak.
Just noticed a few drops of anti-freeze in an odd place: on the seal between the back of the hood and the firewall, just above the heater hoses. Found NO anti-freeze on the heater hoses near the clamps or anywhere else. No anti-freeze under the dash, and I couldn't see any thru the vent in the cowl. The rectangular seal that the heater hoses run through was not saturated and had no antifreeze on it.
My thoughts are to replace the heater hoses, probably has a pinhole. But it seems odd to find the antifreeze above, and only above, the hoses......
Also, a slight leak of PS fluid thru the body of the Power Steering pressure switch, dripping down on the suspension arm, 2.5 liter 4 banger.
The switch unplugs leaving what appears to be a fitting with a nut that screws onto a shoulder in the PS line. Is it as easy to replace as it looks? Can't seem to find it in the Haynes manual and haven't seen anything about it here with a few searches.
Not a serious problem either way but would appreciate any insight, thanks.
