  • While this might not be good for the power steering system, it isn't particularly dangerous to you physically. If the power steering fails, the steering will become a lot heavier, making quick precise maneuvers more difficult, but the steering will still fundamentally work. – the_storyteller Jun 18 '19 at 20:08
  • Take it back to the mechanic and get them to fix it properly. They must have made some sort of mistake, used the wrong fluid or used one that is contaminated. – GdD Jun 18 '19 at 21:45

It sounds like you need to replace your power steering fluid. It must have absorbed water. I've never heard of this before, but it seems plausible.
