Leak in power steering hose or pump 2000 buick lasabre custom

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

SOURCE: Power Steering pump appears to be leaking but is full????

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.

SOURCE: 1999 Mercury Cougar powersteering hose leak

if that is the case the fitting is probably cracked and unless you replace that fitting it will continue to leak.

SOURCE: power steering hose cme off causing atf leaking

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.

ou are looking at the engine, on the left (passenger side) will be the belt. The alternator should be at the top of the belts route. directly below the alt is the tensioner/pulley (small) Below and to the rear of the vehicle is the power steering pump. The resevoir is attached to the pump. If you reach/look over the engine and feel below the heater hoses you will see the p/s pump resevoir cap

Oil fluid leak on left side of car-2000 buick lasabre


If its on the drivers side of the car close to the front check the transmission oil cooler lines. Especially if the fluid is redish in color. You will see them if you look up under the vehicle on the drivers side. There will be to black hoses running between the transmission and the radiator. If they are wet/dripping you found the leak.

My 96 buick regl is leaking power steering fluid. Not sure if its pump, reservoir or hoses. It is located in the back side of motor on passenger side. Is this something I can get to myself to check or...


My hose blew for my power steering too. It must be under some high pressure but I just looked at which hose was leaking cut off the metal tubing at both ends of the rubber hose and put a high pressure piece of hose on there in place of the old hose. Make sure you use enough clamps on the hose to clamp down on the metal tubing because I made that mistake and it blew off again. It works perfect with two clamps on each end, hasn't gave out yet. :)

1996 buick lasabre


A 1996 Buick Lasabre is a front wheel drive (FWD) car, so the front of the motor is facing the front passenger side wheel of the car. That said, the power steering fluid reservoir should be close to the front passenger side wheel tower.

Power steering fluid


Just went to a dealer today for my 2000 regal. It took them a while, but they showed me where my power steering cap was.

It is black and very hard to see. You need a small flashlight (LED recommended), and then need to look on the left side behind the engine and in front of where the glove box is. WAY down, under some hoses, and adjacent to the engine is the power steering cap (I'd estimate about 8-10" down). The best way to see it is to lean into the engine from the front while standing to the left of the center of the car. Lean forward and place the flashlight pointing down and slightly to the left behind the engine and at a level just below the block. Good luck!!
