I had the power steering pump replaced and they did not replace the hose that the fluid runs thru, and i dont know where it goes


There are two lines. One is a high pressure and one is a return line. They both run from the pump to the steering box.

Where is the alternator located on a 1991 ls 400


The main purpose on an alternator is to recharge current back to the battery. One of the most common problems with the Lexus LS400 and SC400 is that power steering pump seal leak. Right below the power steering pump is the alternator. The power steering fluid will drip down and cause many electrical problems for the alternator. Therefore, its very common to have the alternator go bad along with the power steering pump, just be sure to check.awcforever.gif

Steering rack leaking fluid


Check the power steering hose to the end at the steering rack. There is a good chance that the hose may be leaking or where the hose connects to the steering rack is where your leak is coming from. Note that power steering fluid is flammable and if sprayed on any hot surface like the exhaust manifold may cause in a car fire. Good luck and Auto Zone should have the replacement hose with the step by step instructions to replacing it.

Loud noise when turning wheel red fluid leakage behind driver side tire no loss of power steering and persistantly louder when first driven and then noise almost goes away once 92 lexus ls 400 145000...


that could be the rack and pinion leaking. as far as the noise goes, it is more than likely the same thing. have your local mechanic check it out because if its the power steering pump its cheaper to fix that than it will be to have the rack replaced.
