SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: power steering hose leak

as long as you use a flair nut wrench on the fittings it's not that hard. Since you aren't going to use the old hose over, if the nuts are frozen you can break the line off and use a socket to get them off. Don't loose any "o" rings (new kit comes with them as needed but make sure you know where the old ones are. New lines are often a slightly different shape than old one...make sure line is not rubbing on anything or it will wear through.
After filling, turn the wheel gently all the way to one side, then the other and re-check level. Most times any noise at pump will disappear after use,as any residual air bleeds out.

SOURCE: My 94 Jeep grand Cherokee power steering fluid is

That generation GC does not have a rack and pinion but they do have bad lower steering gearbox seals, allowing all the fluid to gush out when that seal failed. Check to see if p/s fluid is leaking out from the bottom of the steering gearbox. If it is, pull pitman arm, replace seal, replace pitman arm and all should be good.

Why does ATF leak from power steering system?


Seals worn and leaking or hoses damaged or hose connections leaking or hydraulic rack leaking. Need inspection to determine exactly where the leak, then buy replacement part(s) and have installed...and replacement power steering fluid too and consider replacing the serpentine belt that drives it at same time.

Power steering fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla


look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

1997 audi a4 quattro power steering leak


Usually you can see if the pump is leaking. Most times it's a hose, or in your case, I'd look real close at the rack and pinion unit that's mounted in a hard to see spot under the car. It can be leaking into the rubber boots that are on both ends of the unit, then slowly leaking out while you are driving. I would bet this is the problem as the noise you are describing happens when the system has air in it, and as you work it back and forth, it purges the air.

My Nissan Maxima '92 leaks power steering fluid. I had someone look at it but they couldn't find the leak. I just put in new fluid every few weeks and it works fine but if there is an easy fix I would like...


if there is a leaking seal in the power steering rack and pinion or in the hydraulic pump, a power steering stop leak may swell the seal enough to stop the leak. if there is still a leak, it is likely a damaged / corroded line or fluid cooler. next time you need to top up your fluid, i recommend Lucas brand power steering stop leak / treatment. after a couple top ups it will stop the leak it if is a rubber seal problem. good luck!

2002 T-fird fluids leaking


Not really sure what your asking. But if your leaking from the power steering unit but it looks like tranny fluid it's because it is tranny fluid. Power steer fluid and tranny fluid are the same except that tranny fluid has a red dye in it.

Power streeing oil leeking under from car


Your Camry uses ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid). Your going to have to get the leak repaired, common cause is the high pressure hose is leaking and soon it will fail 100% and your going to lose your power steering. Worst is the ATF is flammable and if it hits a hot spot like the exhaust manifold, it will catch fire. Good luck and hope this helps, and don't let the fluid get too low. Low fluid in your steering pump will cause damage.

Leaking Hydraulic Fluid


Power steering fluid is the only thing the car has resembling hydralic fluid. If you follow the rubber hose all the way around from the pump to the gear box, possibly with the car running and the wheel being turned back and forth by someone while you look, you should find your leak. This is assuming it is powersteering fluid. Check your pump. Is it low? Rubber hose probably turns to steel line somewhere along the path from pump to gearbox, hope that helps ya a touch.

Fluid check


The 2002 thru 2007 do not have the traditional hydraulic power stering unit that requires fluid. In these models, power assist is provided by an electrical power steering unit. Nothing to check there but the battery.
