> Help! My quattro is leaking hydraulic fluid what appears to be from the
reservoir itself.  From the cap!!  When the car starts and the system
pressurizes and I move the steering, it starts to bubble out of the cap like
it's over pressurized.  I don't see fluid leaking anywhere else other than
there but it's bad enough that it empties the reservoir in about 15 minutes
under pressure.  Do I have a pressure valve that's not functioning anymore?
The car stood for about a year without anyone driving it.

When I had this symptom, it was the Power Steering pump.
