Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience and I'm here to help with this problem. Additional services may be offered for detailed information.
You can operate the vehicle with a power steering leak. There is less pressure on the system when traveling straight. There is greater pressure when maneuvering in like a parking lot or pulling in and out of a driveway. Going down the highway the system will still leak but nothing like turning the wheel back and forth. You should be alright during the trip, make sure to keep fluid in the system though, an empty system will damage the pump.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
Should you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks so much.
