Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
You may have to be under the car to trace the line. It will run from the PS pump down behind the engine to where it connects to the rack and pinion steering gear. The rack and pinion is on a subframe piece below and behind the engine. The 2 PS lines connect on the driver's side of the rack and pinion, if like nearly all GM cars.
The pressure line can be disconnected from the pump (suction out the fluid first or it will leak all over), up at top, and then disconnect it at the rack and pinion. If this fitting on the rack is hard to reach, you may need a crows foot wrench to loosen it and remove-I'm not sure about aleros. After disconnecting it top and bottom, check for any brackets that hold the two lines together, and for a bracket that may hold the lines secure on the backside of the engine.

If it is a small leak you might be able to wrap it with a rubber hose and apply several clamps to put a band-aid on it. However, this is only temporary at best and could still cause problems depending on where it is leaking. One possible alternative to a new hose - if you take the hose to a shop like The Hoseman (or equivalent) they can rebuild the hose cheaper than buying a new one.
