Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
Either my pump or a hose is severely leaking power steering fluid. I plan on getting this fixed ASAP, but is it still safe to drive without power steering for short distances for a day or two until I can get it into my mechanic if I keep feeding it power steering fluid?
Fill it with fluid and look for the leak the system is under the most pressure when the front wheels are all the way to one side or the other..(all the way left or all the way right) if a helper can turn the wheel, you can inspect for the leak to determine where its at..if a hose is craked open, you can cut it and install a ferrule and clamps on it,,if its the pump, it needs replaced..and if the pump growls already due to low fluids it will need replaced very soon anyway..good luck it can be driven carefully but I dont sugest it..
