    one of the quick disconnect fittings on one of the angleing cylinders is leaking when activated. other than the fitting being bad would there be any other problem leading to this? just got done changing fluid before i noticed this, but may have been one of the reasons the system was low on fluid any way......

    thanks for any ideas and yes will be replacing that fitting first.
