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.

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.

Power steering fluid leaking. change hose? change pump? Re clamp?

If the hose itself is leaking (not the connection/end) , replace the hose. If the hose is more than 5 years old, I'd probably just replace it. If it's the low pressure hose (return) and it's leaking at the junction, you can probably replace the clamp. If it's the high pressure hose (with the machine-formed hose ends) then replace the hose - a clamp is unlikely to withstand the pressure and you don't want to take the chance of it blowing off when you're turning.

How to repair power steering leak?

You need to first diagnose what is leaking. Most power steering leaks are in the pressure hose but not always. Pressure hoses will have screw on fittings and return hoses will usually just have spring clamps or screw type clamps on the end of the hose. Pressure hose most likely, return hoses 2nd, failing rack and pinion assy 3rd and pressure pump last. If its leaking from the bellows on the end of the rack and pinion the you will need a reman unit. Presure pumps are also remanufactured if thats what you need. hoses are replaced with new hoses or standard return hose for the return line.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...

The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

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.
