    Kidspeedy,
    What is there to say, the kid spells it all out. My mechanic dropped his jaw when I told him what I wanted done. In the past I would just walk into the mechanics garage and after oooh and aahhh they would always come up with a ridiculus price. I was quote $300.00 for this particular job. Cost me less than $100.00 LABOR AND MATERIALS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pressure hose on the 3.8 engine is 25 dollars part #91710

power steering pressure hose on the 3.1 engine is 27 dollars part #91674

all of these parts are at autozone
tools all so.

labor should be around 50 dollars
plus a quart of power steering fluid.about 5 dollars for some good stuff.

its a messy job but you could be done in about an hour all cleaned up and ready to go.

if you took it in to get done somewere ,you could spend about 200 dollars parts and labor and shop fees.

you will need a set of line wrenchs as to not round the corners of the hex heads.
make sure your tools fit the new line as well.

maybe a few other just basic tools.

and you may have to remove a skirt on the bottom but its no big deal just dirty as heck.

use some carpet and cardboard to get underthere you will need to jack up the car to fit underthere .
verify the hose that is leaking and trace it to both ends and remove them with the right fit line wrench.

you should be ok on this .

hope this helps
thank you

Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander


The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

How much does it cost to replace the power steering hose on a 2006 pontiac grand prix?


Which hose is it, low pressure return or high pressure line?
Usually lookin at min 1 to 2 hours labor no matter what is leaking.
hose assemblies average 30 to 50 dollars approx. So Questimate would come in at anywhere between $80 to $170. Unless a pump or rack & pinion is needed.

Power steering presure leak hose


temporary solution is to fine the leaking spot (if it's a very small leaking hole in the hose ) and screw in a right size screw and wrap it up tightly with tape. this way you'll loose less power steering fluid. and off course you know the better solution is to change the pipe.

Power Steering Recently my power steering pipe blew and started leaking due to it comming in contact with the engine. Is it possible to remove and replace this pipe or is it a sealed unit to the steering...


if it's the low pressure side i'm sure a mechanic can replace just the broken part. if it's the high pressure side, best off just to get a new hose. if not, the hose is likely to leak again on the high pressure hose if the unit isn't replaced.
