Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. The two most common causes of a leak this large is either the high pressure line or the rack and pinion. Most of the time it is the rack and pinion. If you cannot pinpoint he leak by cleaning the car up from underneath then you will need to add dye to the fluid. Most auto part stores sell dye kits. You can add it and then run the car and use the kit to find where the fluid is glowing which will show you where the leak it. I hope this helps. If you need anything else please let me know.
