Replace power steering hose on 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I had my Jeep in for some major repairs at the dealer. They also foundthat my pressurized power steering hose is leaking and needs to bereplaced. I'm fairly handy, so I thought this might be a job a could domyself. The dealer also said that there's a fitting at the pump for thepressurized line that needs replacing. Can your help with anyinstallation instructions and/or tips? Thanks!

    I have a 2000 JGC that developed a leak from the pressure fitting into the power steering pump. The line came off - no big deal - calling around, special order, line and quick connect fitting over $100! Come on, anybody no a way around this. Typical JGC problem.

The line will cost you about a hundred bucks, its annoying but better then having the steering go out while on the road. As far as replacing it, have a long handled 20 mm wrench handy (same size top and bottom). I would also recommend driving around for a couple minutes to heat up the lines, then ever so slightly loosen them. The heat makes them come off much easier - just make sure to let it all cool off before you take it apart.

    I forgot to mention, make sure to install the upper hose fitting first (into the pump), then screw in the bottom quick connect fitting, then snap the line into the quick connect fitting. It will make sense when you look at it.
    Most of all,
    MAKE SURE YOU PROPERLY THREAD THE FITTINGS!

Parts are not cheap. I'm not sure how hard it is to get to your lines but line wrench/crows foot are probably needed. They are like a boxend wrench with cutout to go over line.

How do i repair power steering return hose


power steering hose are under alot of pressure, you don't repair them, you replace them. Even the return lines, although they're lower pressure, you still need the heavy duty hose for it.

There is a hole right on top of the power steering pressure hose in my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It squirts fluid up visibly when the engine is on and the wheels are turned. How do I replace this hose?...


Mark the hose at the pump so you'll know which end goes there on the new one. Take the old one with you to compare to the new one. Be sure to thread and tighten carefully. When filling the resevoir, pour a little in, leave the cap off, turn the steering wheel both ways to the stop. This bleeds the air out of the system. Be sure not to over fill or you will blow seals. If when you turn the wheel after the repair is made it is very hard to turn the wheel one way and easy the other way, then your hose is reversed.

My power steering pressure hose has a visible hole in it and squirts fluid when turning the wheel. How do I replace the pressure hose assembly? Is it O.K. to drive, if I top off the power steering fluid tank, and drive it about 10 miles to Autozone while it's still leaking?

O ring is leaking from power steering pressure hose


I had the same problem. You can not replace that o ring. You have to replace the complete hose ***. They redesigned the hose to fix that common problem. To bad the customer has to pay to replace a poorly designed part.

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
