How can I tell which line is broken on my power steering pump

And where would it be. It is leaking down by the wheel on the driver side of the vehicle. when you add fluid it just pumps out and it makes a squeal sound when turning wheel.

Well you would just have to clean the area real good and check for any holes or cracks or leaks

Power steering fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla


look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

Leaking power steering fulid


Most common cause is a bad power steering line. Clean off the power steering pump and refill it with fluid. Then, while the car is running, have someone turn the wheel from side to side while you observe the power steering unit. If you're unable to see fluid leaking from the fittings on the lines, the leak will likely be due to a kink in the line further down.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire


Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

,,my alero is leaking steering wheel fluid from the right side of the car,what could this be


There are 3 likely culprits:
  1. One of the hydraulic lines or hoses is damaged.
  2. The power steering pump seal is leaking.
  3. The rack and pinion seals are leaking.
Below is drawing of the system components. A thorough visual inspection of all of the components should allow you to track down the source of the leak.

Was driving 2004 trail blazer and the power steering went out was hard trying to turn wheel pulled over and it was leaking on the driver side it wasnt making no noise it just happen so what should i do...


Sounds like you've lost hydrolic pressure. Did you check the 2 hoses connecting to the power steering pump? I take it, you lost power steering fluid also right? If it was leaking badly, it was the high pressure line that blew, if not, it was the return line. You can have a hose made for you for pretty cheap to replace the hose.

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

I have a power stearing leak I think its comming from driver side


The front pump seal on the power steering pump - located behind the power steering pump pully tends to leak on these. To fix it you are better off replacing the entire pump assembly because the drive shaft tends to wear crooked and messes up the seal. Also, these are known for oil cooler lines leaking which is directly below power steering pump which can be mistaken for power steering pump leak.
