thanks, looking to track it for the first time this summer, I want to make sure I'm monitoring all potential wear items properly.
Not a big deal. The system is designed to do this. If you look at your Power Steering cap, you will see a small pin size hole. The "leak" exits from the hole when the fluid overheats. Another quick fix that I've seen a couple of times is to put a sweat band around the cap (motorcycle brake reservoir style).
