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.

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 stearing leak

All depends what is leaking. For power steering leaks there is not much to do but replace the leaking part. If it is a hose it is not a big deal. If it is the power steering pump itself check autozone, etc for availability. They'll probably have to order it in for you. Sometimes you luck out and the leak is due to a seal where a hose is screwed into the pump or the rack and pinion unit. I believe some auto parts places carry stop leak for power steering units but I have no experience with them. One last thought is if the car is pretty old and the leak a slow one, you just check your power steering fluid periodically because you can buy a whole lot of power steering fluid for the price you'll pay for a power steering pump. You can also consider a replacement from a junk yard. Generally power steering pumps out last the cars they are put in.

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 pump leaking on the bottom side hose, does pump need to be replaced or can the hose just be replaced and how difficult . 1991 nissan maxima.

If the leak is from the pump unit it will need to be replaced,
If the leak is just from the hose it can be replaced.
Identify the definite source of the leak, before proceeding.
A new hose could probably be fitted by DIY if you have the correct tools.
