Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm

\015 So I have a pretty bad power streering leak with my 96 Geo Prizm. It has about 188,000 miles on it and is getting quite old. The car has a power streering leak, and I'm sure I can fix that soon. My question has to do specifically with the smoke. If I drive my car even very little, smoke will emit from under the hood. If I drive for long periods of time(over 50 miles in a day), the power streering leak get worse, and more smoke is emitted from unter the hood. the smoke seems to be coming from the engine, below the engine, or maybe underneath it. Could the leak have any corralation between the smoking of the car?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 12-11-2018

Answers :

Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.
