    My problem is the same and is on the hose that connects on the top of the pump. I just seem to find a replacement for it, as I do not know the exact name for this hose. It looks like this line go from the bottom of cooler to the top of the pump/reservoir.

I had the same problem. You can not replace that o ring. You have to replace the complete hose ***. They redesigned the hose to fix that common problem. To bad the customer has to pay to replace a poorly designed part.

Power steering fluid leaking. change hose? change pump? Re clamp?


If the hose itself is leaking (not the connection/end) , replace the hose. If the hose is more than 5 years old, I'd probably just replace it. If it's the low pressure hose (return) and it's leaking at the junction, you can probably replace the clamp. If it's the high pressure hose (with the machine-formed hose ends) then replace the hose - a clamp is unlikely to withstand the pressure and you don't want to take the chance of it blowing off when you're turning.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...


The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

Steering fluid leak; oil covering steering gear box


if the leak is coming from the steering box there are usually only 3 places it can come from;most common place is the pitman shaft seal,which can be replaced.this is were the pitman arm of the steering connects to the steering box.another place is the steering box input shaft seal,this is were the steering colume connects to the steering box,which can be replace.the last place is the power steering hoses were they connect to the steering box.there are seals that seal the lines when screwed into the box which can also be replaced.so first you need to see exactly were the leak is coming from.rare occasions the steering box is porous which means the box will need replacing.a car of this age should have shown up long ago.you will have to clean the box off at the car wash then run the car and turn the steering wheel all the way to one side,this will build up pressure in the system to show up the leak quicker.

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.

I'm leaking power steering fluid. If it's leaking from the pressure hose, can I just tighten it or will I need a new hose altogether?


it depends if it is leaking at the connecttion or where the connector is cimped to the hose. If it is the connection, sure simply tighten it up. IF it is already tight then the o-ring may be bad. If the crimp is leaking thenyou will have to replace the hose
