If your steering is easier above idle the problem is the pump.

Hoses do not last forever. Try tightening the fittings on the hose end, if that does not work, take hose off and take to parts store, partsman should give you the right one,make sure all the hard bent parts are same as old or it will not go on properly.

You have to determine where the leak is occurring, at the pump, hoses or the rack and pinion unit.

Power steering leaking


Hi Kirk, I'm glad to help!
Kirk, power steering leaks can come from any part of the power steering system. Fluid can leak from seals on the hoses, the hoses themselves, the power steering pump, the power steering gear assembly, usually leaks from the seals at the end of the gear behind the long boots. These are a few things you can check and see what part you need to replace. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kirk.

Is it possible for power steering fluid to get into the engine and mix with the oil? I am loosing fluid and there are no visible leaks, the engine oil and filter was recently changed and now has turne


No, the power steering is entirely a separate and sealed system, wholly external to the engine. The power steering pump pushes the fluid through a high pressure hose into the rack and pinion-the steering gear mounted below and behind the engine-and holds pressure within the rack that enables power assisted steering. At the same end where the power steering fluid hose enters the gear will be a fitting for a return line back to the fluid reservoir. These two hoses are usually routed close together at least part of the way, some may even be held together with brackets. Leaks could develop at the pump, the fluid reservoir, or the two hoses to and from the rack and pinion, or the seals inside the rack and pinion may have failed. You should be able to find the leak-it will only leak to the outside-to check the rack and pinion for leaks, right where your tie rods come out of the gear and go to the wheels for steering, will be a small rubber boot encasing the tie rod and the end of the rack assembly-on both ends is a boot and a tie rod-peel back the rubber boot from the gear ass\'y, it should be dry. If a lot of fluid, the seals in the rack and pinion are gone. It will have to be replaced.
Hopefully you will find a leaking hose or fractured reservoir, but keep looking, air flow may be blowing the leaking fluid back and under the car. Good luck, hope it\'s not the rack and pinion.

Power steering leaking is leaking by the boot at the wheel


Just need to replace the rack/pinion unit with a rebuilt from your local parts place. A common problem.

Power steering fluid leaking;


Fill it up. Have a helper hold the steering wheel to all the way to the stop while you check for leaks. Especially the high pressure hose.
