Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

Hey, here's the procedure, disable air bag, if equipped w/ one, disconnect the pump return hose from the reservoir and place the end in a large container. Plug the port in the reservoir. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times, until fluid stops running from the hose. Turn off engine immediately. Re-attach hose. Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses at the pump. Remove the drive belt. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts and remove pump.
Install in reverse order. Adjust belt tension,fill ps reservoir and bleed any air from the system (to bleed air from system, fill reservoir, start engine and allow to idle, turn wheel from side to side all the way several times. Shut off, fill if necessary.
. Tighten bolts to : Thru bolt 30 ft lbs., mounting nut 16 ft lbs.

Depends on the part to be replaced. The pump is pretty straightforward with the correct tools and costs about $60 to $100 if you do it yourself (I own an Intrepid, similar to the LHS and I work on it a lot) . If it's a metal hose, this is going to be about $30 to $50 or more and will need a flare nut wrench, along with other hand tools. If this is attached to the steering rack, you may have to move other parts out of the way. This is not a hard job either, but could be time consuming and be careful not to cross thread the fittings.

Try a can of "Bars' Leak" for power steering leaks 1st available at your local auto parts store. It's cheap and can't hurt but may fix your problem!

Here is a good link. Check out the video. Changing the pump is a pretty simple task, especially if you bought the pump with a new pulley. If you only have the pump you will need a pulley removal/installation tool. Check your belts to see if they need replacing because now would be a good time to do it since they have to come off to take off the power steering pump.
