Question about 1990 GMC Safari

Power steering leaking

Please help- The power steering gearbox is leaking at the top. I tried lucas but no help. This is a common problem I know and I usually fix most things myself. First, can you replace o-ring on top of gear box with it still on the vehicle? Second, can I mark settings for the retainers -replace the o-ring and reinstall as long as the shaft stays put? thanks Rilla in Fl

I have a power steering leak how and what do I need to do first to fix this problem?


First thing is to identify where the leak is, you have hoses, or the connection under reservoir where the most common leaks will be found. Of course if leak is not coming from top area then you have to look underneath where the rack is located. Just look for the leak where you usually see rubber accord boot located on inside end of steering tie rod. If it is not the upper hoses at pump, and just a seal in rack, try power steering stop leak, I used Lucas with great success on one of my vehicles.
Good luck. FREE-BUSINESSES.com

Seems like the power steering pumpis leaking, I have fluid below the truck and allover the top of the steering g ear box, cannot tellif it is leaking from the pump or the lines, I tried putting in Lucas...


If this is around a 1999 F150, it is the Power Steering line going to the front steering oil cooler. There is a plastic clip which holds the line against the frame. Apparently it is a common problem. The plastic part seems to hold road salt and moisture against the metal and it corrodes.

Change the line out or at least take it off and inspect it.

My Nissan Maxima '92 leaks power steering fluid. I had someone look at it but they couldn't find the leak. I just put in new fluid every few weeks and it works fine but if there is an easy fix I would like...


if there is a leaking seal in the power steering rack and pinion or in the hydraulic pump, a power steering stop leak may swell the seal enough to stop the leak. if there is still a leak, it is likely a damaged / corroded line or fluid cooler. next time you need to top up your fluid, i recommend Lucas brand power steering stop leak / treatment. after a couple top ups it will stop the leak it if is a rubber seal problem. good luck!

2005 dodge caravan, leaking power steering fluid(rack n pinion), i am using lucas power steering stop leak. How long can i go with(lucas) before i replace the rack? fluid is not leaking anymore...


I really wouldn't push it more than 3 months or especially if climate change once the leak stop has stopped the leak it doesn't like temp change. but i've done radiator stop leak from Lucas and went 6 months before the leak appeared again. good luck

My 1997 ford windstar power steering is leaking from the bottom of the steering column out of the rubber boot


replace the power steering rack or you can try (lucas power steering stopleak) alot of people will tell you this does not work but i found that if you refill with lucas brand power steering stop leak when low after a couple bottles it does work and will seal it up. I had a bad leak on mine (about two bottles of fluid a day after using lucas ..about 4 bottles it sealed up and i havnt had a problem in about two years.)

My power streeing pump is making noise , however there is fluild in it, but it leaks from the cap on the resovir . Is the pump bad or something eles is wrong.. the streeing wheel feels fine... tx


power steering fluid loses viscosity and usefulness over time- I recomend replacing the power steering fluid, and using Lucas brand power steering stop leak, I swear by that stuff, My old caprice was losing all the power steering fluid EVERY single day! 2 truck size bottles of that gunk from lucas and it worked fine for over a year not so much as a drop. It is also over compressing in the sump, either too much or its foaming cause its broke down.

Get some new fluid in there, top it up with Lucas, and have a nice day!

Dakota power steering leak


That's the power steering pressure switch and it is very easy to replace. I don't know how much the part is, but it cant be very much. It's a very simple switch. I'd just replace it.

Power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco


The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.
