2006 Subaru Legacy - power steering fluid

I have a smell coming from the engine that seems to be power steering fluid. Can you tell me what the fix is for this problem. Ara you aware of any power steering issues with this car?

All vehicles that are 13 years old can have power steering problems and if you are not mechanically inclined then find an independent shop to fix this for you. A smell that seems to be something is not enough to make any logical guesses on.

I can’t smell it from out here in the interwebs. You are only guessing that it IS power steering fluid and you’ve told us nothing about your car - mileage, engine, whether the power steering fluid is low, you’ve had to add fluid, ect.

The fix for this problem is to take it to a mechanic who can diagnose the actual problem and determine what is leaking and how to fix it.
