    thanks for the info one thing if the truck has a power asisit will the master have more than 2 lines coming out of it ? and would the breaks not work right if the steering was messed up ? last if there is a power steering cooler were would that be and what am i looking for. thanks

    there is no line so what i think it is is just a metal line that must run like a cooler and that is were the problem is can i just get rid of that metal line and just run the normal two ? i dont use the truck much just to plow a little and go to the dump.

    auto zone's website shows that the lines is $18.99 Part#91651. It may be worth rep placing, and am not sure that you can do without the one.

    it will clearly have a line from the power steering to the master cylinder.

    I have seen in one instance where a chevy utility had a power steering cooler. I have never seen another one but it sounds like it. If you had a Boost assist (wich is where the power steering pump is the booster for the brakes) you would know it by looking at the master cylinder.

I have a 2003 chevy blazerthat has power steering problem no leak


There is a "pressure regulator" located in the pump just behind the high pressure line that directs high pressure fluid to the steering rack when you turn the steering wheel. It sounds like the regulator valve is sticking and not sending the high pressure fluid to the steering rack when you turn the wheel.
You can remove the pump and clean the valve, reinstall the pump and flush the steering system with fresh fluid or replace the pump and flush the system with new fluid.
Good luck.

'89 chevy k1500 sloppy steering wheel (HELP PLEASE)


Everyone always gravitates to the suspension but folks, it's 99% sure that it is the EVO. The EVO is the sensor built into the steering column that senses movement of the steering wheel then controls the power steering pump accordingly. When it goes out (which is all too frequently) you get sloppy and loose steering at lower speeds and it does tighten up a bit on the highway at higher speeds. This is the way it is supposed to work but when it fails it's downright scary trying to keep the truck straight on a narrow two lane road!

I have a 89 chevy 1500 4x4 with a power steering leek and can't see the line that is leeking because it is going throught the fram after leaving the gear box


A very Fast leak Is Simple to Diagnose
  1. Start Engine with reservoir Full
  2. Have a Helper to sit inside
  3. Go under vehicle and look where you suspect leak is
  4. Have helper turn steering wheel to
  5. RIGHT or LEFT All the way till it stops and hold it there
  6. If you see it Pouring out from the Area suspected.
  7. That WILL be the HIGH PRESSURE Power searing hose.
  8. Under High Demand they have lots of pressure.
The Low side (RETURN will leak ALL the TIME and just Drip unless there is a Large hole in it
Hope I Have Helped

Power steering fluid leek on 89 honda accord


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.
  • You need to drain the fluid.
  • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
  • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
  • Tighten all the bolts.
  • Adjust the drive belt tension.
  • Fill and bleed the system.
Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.
