Hi,


If you want a procedure, i can write it for you.However, if you want the diagrams as well, the BEST option would be to purchase a cost effective repair manual that would help you with the help of relevant exploded diagram. You can purchase the same from the link below :-

    Hi,


    Buy the specific power steering high pressure hose for your vehicle.
    Next, cut the neck of the original power steering high pressure hose's
    metal tube off at the front end of your vehicle, on the body of the
    power steering pump facing front of the vehicle. Also cut off the
    tubing near the back end of the power steering high pressure hose,
    located behind the engine on the steering column, near the driver's
    side firewall. You can do this working from above in the engine
    compartment. Catch the red power steering fluid in a pan and dispose
    according to your state's regulations.

    Spray Liquid Wrench onto each head, the one in the front port,
    the one in the back. Then unscrew the heads of the original high
    pressure hose using an 18 mm fork wrench. Your vehicle's high pressure
    hose may use a different size, but you get the idea. To get better
    access down in back, you may have to cut the 18 mm fork wrench handle
    with a hacksaw to about 3" long. You can now remove the original power
    steering high pressure hose. In our vehicle's case, we also had to take
    off the right front tire, and its tire well guard, to take off the
    original factory brackets that also mounted the original hose in place.

    Next measure the engine compartment from the front head port on
    the power steering pump to the back head port on the steering column,
    like an inverted "L". Our vehicle's was 60 inches. Take your new
    replacement high pressure hose to an auto machine shop, have them cut
    off the metal tubing about 4" to 6" down from the heads, and then
    attach high pressure hosing (not metal tubing) to join them, at your
    measured length. Most shops do this all the time, and can make the
    joint perfect, just like new. The only thing is you now have a flexible
    tube, not a formed metal piece.

    Working from above in the engine compartment, install the back
    end of the power steering high pressure hose first. This allows
    flexibilty in the hose so you can seat the head more easily into the
    port on the steering column. Be sure the head has a white teflon o-ring
    on it near the top nut and lube it with some fresh power steering fluid
    before you begin. Tweak the head with your fingers first so it catches
    into the port and starts without cross threading. Finish off tightening
    the back head with the cut-down 18 mm fork wrench, snug, not extremely
    tight, or you'll break the o-ring.

    Bring the hose up and over the engine top close to the
    alternator. It shouldn't sit too near the drive belt on the side of the
    alternator. Bring the front head around to the port on the front side
    of the power steering pump. Be sure the head has the white teflon
    o-ring on it near the nut, lube it with fresh power steering fluid.
    Tweak the head with your fingers first so it catches into the port
    without cross threading. Finish off tightening the front head and snug
    it in, as the back.

    Follow the normal procedure by putting in the proper
    type and amount of power steering fluid into your vehicle's power
    steering pump. Follow the instructions to bleed air out of the line.
    Take the vehicle for a test run to be sure the steering is safe.


    Let me know the outcome or if any other help required.

    Thanks for using "Fixya".

Power steering hose diagram


power steering hoses run from pump to the steering box, (high pressure) and from the steering box to pump (low side).. is a closed connection. pump to box, then from box back to pump. High pressure should have pressed on fittings, while low side may have normal water hose clamps or replaceable hose without pressed on fittings.

Power steering leakin , but dont know where its coming from , and its whining too . but the it stops whining after i drive it for awhile , what should i do....


Whining should be low power sterring fluid.
Check the power steering dipstick and keep it in the range.
If you have no power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid ( Dexron) works fine.
Leaks best found with a flashlight, you should not need the engine running, but you will need to get under the car, and you may need to push or bend some of the plastic sheilds out of the way to look.
Most often it is a hose, high or low pressure hose to the power steering pump that leaks.
High pressure hose has fittings, low pressure hose may have a hose clamp.

Low pressure power stering hose


It runs next to the high pressure hose from the pump to the reservoir. It's 3/4 inch hose, it's held on with clamps, unlike the high pressure hose that has compressed fittings. Your best bet is to remove the hose and match it up with a parts store.

The high pressure and low pressure hoses are different sizes at the gear box. And the low pressure /return hose is usually rubber with a clamp at the back off the pump.

Ppower steering pressure hose 1988


There are only 2 hoses in the power steering system.
High pressure feed, and pressure return. They both connect to the power steering pump.
You can get the hoses from a dealer, or a local auto parts store.
Once you have them in hand, they are very simple to identify.
