Question about Cars & Trucks
There is a leak under the car on the passenger side, I can feel where the leak is and it seems to be close to where the hoses connect or it could be in the pump itself. I took it to a mechanic that said is was a leak in rack companion.
You have to work from under the car to replace the hose
Only get it from a dealer that way it will fit correctly
Power steering & a/c hoses I have found have to be OE
from dealer to fit right
If you find the rack leaks inside the rubber bellows then
it has to go,it can't be fixed,only rebuilt in a factory

Just guessing. Could it be a warped brake disk? That would cause vibration. And vibration in steering might conceivably cause splashing out the power steering reservoir. You would know if the disk were warped by a shudder when you brake at hight speeds.

If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.

YOU CANT USE A REGULAR FUEL LINE ON POWER STEERING AS A HIGH PRESSURE HOSE.BECAUSE POWER STEERING PRESSURE IS 1000 PSI.YOU HAVE TO BUY THE POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE HOSE IT HAS NUMBER OF PLIES MATERIAL WEAVES TO MAKE IT STRONG.IT WAS MADE FOR POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE.YOU DONT HAVE A BLOCKAGE .THE HIGH PRESSURE HOSE JUST WORE OUT.REPLACE IT .IT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM.

POWER STEERING PUMP OR HOSE HAS NO SET TIME OR MILEAGE TO FAIL WHEN THEY WEAR OUT THEY WILL FAIL ANY TIME.I WOULD HAVE POWER STEERING HOSE REPLACE FIRST.IF YOUR STEERING WAS NORMALWORKING GOOD BEFORE HOSE RUPTURE NO NOISES OR HARD STEERING.REPLACE POWER STEERING HOSE.BECAUSE POWER STEERING PUMP AND RACK PINION UNIT GOING TO COST RIGHT MUCH.ALSO BY IT BEING A IMPORT.
