Remove the clamped on hose on the pump (not the one with the pressure fitting), drain into a pan below the vehicle. Replace hose and refill, run and turn steering wheel all the way in both directions (to purge air in system). Do not permit system to run low so add fluid after each time wheel is turned, as needed You cannot remove all the fluid so it is good to repeat this procedure twice. Use a good quality fluid. You don't need much, (usually a quart or less) so price should not be an issue. After your'e finished, drive and re-check level and check for leaks if any.

How do I fix my power steering that is too hard to turn my Jeep Liberty 2003

Simple answer but may not be your problem.
Have you checked the fluid level? Belt still on? Sometimes I've over looked a problem looking for the worse solution.

2002 jeep liberty power steerin seem to be going out . Started with a wird noise check power steerinfluid it was low added one bottle. It seem better but than it became hard to steer

oops do not just add fluid. and the fluid not stated, brand and type. ouch.
many jeeps run very SPECIAL fluid.
the pumps runs at higher RPM and Dexron will not work on my other jeeps. id not own liberty but, can advise.
never ever use the wrong fluid in any A./T or P/S or you will be sorry.
seems its bad system if it drops level, so is moot point now (bet)
my jeep , i had to put in a new pump and napa said,our pS fluid works
and the bottle said just that, and foamed up , fast and the new pump
failed in 1hour. never ever listen to clerks. ever. run spec. lube.

the operators guide pages on capacities page 2004 (i dont have 02 books)
shows this.
Mopar ATF+4 Automatic Transmission Fluid
+4 is downward compatible to 3, its a superior lube.
+3 ended in 2005.

do not use anything else. mixing brands/types asks for trouble.
read all these post , then act.
the additives, in all brands will be different and will not mix well.
do not mix that. (the dino, syn reasons, are all religion, on mix.)

the ATF+4 bottle must say on back , licensed through Chrysler.
many wana be's lie. (they can, and do)

this +4 fluid is a true synthetic and has vastly better spec;s
high heat, longer life, 100kmiles, and very low shear spec.
the PS pumps , some run real fast and i've seen many foam up.
using the wrong fluid. get the real thing.
and do not mix them ,drain and fill with rear ATF+4

good luck

Leaking power steering fluid from both sides of front

You need to check all power steering hoses, hose connections and power steering pump for leaks. It's probably coming from one of these areas.

Why dont i have power steering?

Check power steering fluid first. If thats not it, the belt could be slipping or the power steering motor/pump is bad.

Yellow fluid leaking

The yellow fluid is power steering fluid, the noise is because it is low. Repair your leak asap to prevent pump damage, not to mention the safety issue when you lose the power sterring

The power steering pump is shooting fluid put of the top .

Start by checking your fluid level. Is the level between the cold/low line and the hot/high line on the dipstick?

If the level is ok, do you currently have power assisted steering? If not, or the pump whines, you may have a blockage in the power steering pump/and/or lines, and should go to the mechanic to fix.

Lastly, if both those above are not the problem, it could be simply that the power steering cap/dipstick doen not seal properly to the power steering housing. There is a rubber or plastic seal under the cap to prevent fluid from escaping. If it is damaged/split/chipped ... you will need a new cap/dipstick.

Did that solve your problem?

Is there a service bulliten for 2005 Jeep Liberty high pressure power steering hoses? From what I'm reading power steering problems is common for these Jeeps, has the manufacture acknowledged this?

Hello! Yes, however it concerns the use of power steering fluid that contains Teflon...The only recommended fluid is Mopar +4 power steering fluid or ATF+4 transmission fluid...If a fluid other than listed above is used power steering assembly can be damaged and requires flushing...
