If the pressure hose has a hole in it you will never stop the leak because the fluid can reach 2500 psi. You will have to replace the hose. If the leak is at a fitting you can most likely replace the "o"-ring or washer . Hope this helps.

2000 dakota sport leaks power steering fluid where high pressure line connects to pump. i have replaced the o ring and it slowed it down but did not stop it. I have replaced the o ring twice. What next?


Try some teflon tape on threaded end of hose where o ring went. Also look closely at compression fitting where hose and metal crimp meets, they can leak there. Have seen that on occasion.

Power steering fluid is leaking and makes really weird sounds


Issue is not likely to be the power steering pump. The sounds are made when there is low fluid in the pump/system. Cheapest check is to make sure that the feed and return lines at the pinion housing are firmly attached. You could also have a leaking seals in the rack and pinion assembly. If you see bubbles in the power steering fluid and there is pressure in the power steering system, this is a strong indicator that the issue is seals and not the pump itself. In Regina, Canada, Canadian Tire charges $45 for an inspection. To replace the power steering pump is about $300, and just the hoses is about $145. Obviously the $45 inspection is your best bet.

Power steering fluid leaking


It's either a power steering return line or a pressure line.

You need to have it in the air to diagnose definitively but the rule of thumb is that if it's leaking and the puddle is in front of the passenger tire then it's a return line or cooler, if it's behind the tire then it's the other side of the return line, or a pressure line.

Either way get it changed before you break the power steering pump which isn't cheap. Also, stop leak ruins the pump so don't put any of that in there, just get it fixed soon.

How do i change the power steering pressure switch on my 04 dodge ram 1500 hemi? I can't find it.


From the Factory Service Manual, you can get one relatively cheap from www.promanuals.net. Here is a link to your 2004 Dodge Ram Service Manual.

The power steering pressure switch is installed in
the power steering high-pressure hose (Fig. 9).

(1) Disconnect electrical connector from power
steering pressure switch.
(2) Place a small container or shop towel beneath
switch to collect any excess fluid.
(3) Remove switch. Use back-up wrench on power
steering line to prevent line bending.

Dakota power steering leak


That's the power steering pressure switch and it is very easy to replace. I don't know how much the part is, but it cant be very much. It's a very simple switch. I'd just replace it.

Power steering pump still leaks after putting new one in.


the bubbles are just air in the system, it will eventualy go away. are you sure the leak is from the pump or is it just comming out the cap because of the air. also did you chk. the pressure line? that maybe where your leak is. unless you got a crack in the resavor, its most likely the pressure line. there is a pressure line and a return line.

Power Steering pump pulley


You'll need a power steering pump puller available at most part stores. They are very easy to use and it should have directions in the package on proper use. Just think if you can do yours, you can do most of the domestics pumps out there.
