How do you fix the leak in power stering line

This very much depends on where the leak is coming from. Hoses are generally the weak point. As they get older they can deteriorate and then crack causing a leak. Ageing hoses tend to make the power steering fluid very dark (normally a light honey). There are two cheap temporary fixes to go for. Th first is self amalgamating silicon tape ("Rescue Tape"). Wrap this as tight as you can up and down over the leak in the hose about four layers thick. An alternative is to add 'power steering leak stop' fluid to your steering reservoir tank. You will need to take some fluid out with a turkey baster of if already low due to the leak just top it up. Circulate the fluid by running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock. The more expensive and long tem solution is to replace the hoses with new ones.

Power steering leakin , but dont know where its coming from , and its whining too . but the it stops whining after i drive it for awhile , what should i do....

Whining should be low power sterring fluid.
Check the power steering dipstick and keep it in the range.
If you have no power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid ( Dexron) works fine.
Leaks best found with a flashlight, you should not need the engine running, but you will need to get under the car, and you may need to push or bend some of the plastic sheilds out of the way to look.
Most often it is a hose, high or low pressure hose to the power steering pump that leaks.
High pressure hose has fittings, low pressure hose may have a hose clamp.

My power steering is leaking and i dont know what part is leaking, what is the most common part to leak from power steering? and how much would it cost me to get it fixed?

Common part to leak is the high side power steering hose from the pump to the steering rack or steering box. You can replace the hose your self with common tools and you can pick up the hose at Auto Zone with instructions to get the job done your self.

I could go further but i don't know what type of car you have, but you can log on to Auto for the price of the hose you need and the instructions free of charge.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

Power Steering leak:

There are a few more places than just a hose that could be leaking.


Un less you have some experience working on power steering systems...

Take your car sooner than later to your local mechanic shop to get it inspected. You have a lot to loose.

If the pump runs out of oil it will lock up and then you are really going to have some problums.

Hope this tip helps.

Leaking power steering fluid when running

probably bad hose or leaking seal in pump. try turning the wheel all the way one direction to see if it leaks more. if so it is most likely hose.

I have a slow power steering fluid leak in my 2001 vw beetle how much would it cost to fix. and where could the problem be coming from

could be a leak in the pressure hose,could be the return hose leaking,could be the gearbox leaking,i'd get under it with the engine running and have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth and see where it leaks from, if the pressure line is leaking its about 25 to 30 bucks for a new hose,

Power steering leak --a lot

Three areas of concern. A leaking steering rack: By looking under the car, look for the rods which tie the left and right wheels together in the center. By turning the steering wheel fully to the left or right, you can look behind the front wheels 1/2 way down and you will see the rod I am referring to. Following the rod to it source of attachment, it will have a rubber bellows type cover surrounding is as it gets near the center of the car. If the rubber is torn and has oily residue, that is where you are loosing your power steering fluid. It is a leaking power steering rack. A fairly expensive repair, best left to a professional. Buying a used one is a real crapshoot because they are very prone to failure as they get older.
2. The high pressure hoses will leak on these cars. It is difficult to see these without putting the car on a lift because the pump is on the firewall side of the engine. If you notice the fluid dripping near the pump, it is a higher probability than not that it is the high pressure hose than the pump. Also look at the return hose coming from the reservoir, Sometimes the clamps aren't that tight and it will cause a leak, but your description sounds like a leak under pressure.
