Question about 1995 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Power steering pressure hose has a pinhole leak...the return line does not leak but do I need to remove it first to replace the pressure line?..the nuts are pretty rusted so I have shot them with penetrating oil and will clean with a wire brush...any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ive got a leak in the power steering box near the power steering lines what could it be


most likely it is one of two things. the O-rings on the end of the line has worn and all you have to do is remove the lines from power steering rack and put ne O-rings on. if your car uses a double flare nut style (like a brake line) then it is either the rack leaking or the actual hose leak. if it is the pressure hose you will generally see it spray. not so much on the return line. this requires replacing the part that is faulty

How to repair power steering leak?


You need to first diagnose what is leaking. Most power steering leaks are in the pressure hose but not always. Pressure hoses will have screw on fittings and return hoses will usually just have spring clamps or screw type clamps on the end of the hose. Pressure hose most likely, return hoses 2nd, failing rack and pinion assy 3rd and pressure pump last. If its leaking from the bellows on the end of the rack and pinion the you will need a reman unit. Presure pumps are also remanufactured if thats what you need. hoses are replaced with new hoses or standard return hose for the return line.

a pressure line on a power steering pump would be blasting the fluid out,, not just a small leak,, and with power steering hoses, your b est best is to replace the line as factory specs call for,, I have a honda that for some unknown reason they decided the PS hose needed to go all the way around the back of the motor, and back within 8 inches of where it came from to the steering arm,, silly I know, But that way its costs 10 times as much ,

Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.
