Welcome to the club mate,very nice car,is this the one with upgraded twin gt something turbos?
Power steering leak it’s not a major problem don’t forget it’s a 20 year old plus car.probably a seal or an old rotten hose.
No biggy.

Hi and welcome to GTOUK

As the guys have said power steering leak might not be too bad , joints between the hard pipe and flexis at the rear are common , seals in powersteering racks also common the gators balloon up then start leaking , other one starting to come through now is hard pipes over the rear diff rotting

While it’s not major in the sense of cost you do need it sorting asap really , the power steering system runs at high pressure and you don’t want to lose your assisted steering at speed if it dumps all the oil

Once you get on top of it then is as reliable as any other car or more.these cars are very well built compared to modern cars but 20 years is a long time for everyone and everything.
I wish I was 20 years younger back then I’ve never complaint about back pain but now I do :rofl::rofl::rofl:

It’s a 27 year old car, ‘jap’ or not things will fail unless its been maintained by previous owners.

I was told the same thing ! Out of the 18 months I’ve owned my GTO it’s probably only see the road for around 4 months, head Gasket went first, then 7pp miles later it needed a full engine rebuild ! But carried on and it’s all good now :sunglasses:
