When I bought my new truck and got it home, I looked in the engine compartment and noticed liquid that had collected in the skid plate. I reached my finger around there and it was a very light oil. I figured it was just spillage from a factory fill up, so I didn't think much of it.
Today I started my truck and put it in reverse. As I was backing up and turning the wheel to exit my parking space, the power steering seemed pretty rough, made noise and could feel it in the steering wheel...after a couple seconds it was back to normal. I looked under the hood and realized some power steering fluid had leaked (I can take pictures tomorrow) and that was the liquid I had seen in the skid plate.
I guess my question is: is this normal? Just a new car breaking in and what not? I hate that the power steering resevoir is not see through.
