Replacing Power hi-pressure Steering Hose 99 Dodge Durango

I purchased the new (NAPA) replacement hose and it has three (3) O-rings with it. two the same size and one smaller. Where do these O-rings go? Are all three used or do the provide an extra for different applications?

Any "secrets" or warnings I should be aware of before attempting this DIY project?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

When you remove the oil steering hose, just do a match fit. Match the oil hose with the new one and pre oil the O rings before you connect the fittings. Don't for get to clean all the power steering fluid before you go for a test drive, power steering fluid is flammable. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted friend.

Of course the hose is going to pop off! It's under a lot of pressure and heat! By design, the power steering hose, connectors, and ferrules are pressure fitted together (called crimping) by using a hydraulic press.

Either go to your local parts store (NAPA, Pep Boys, Auto Zone) or parts department of the Dodge/Chrysler dealership and purchase & install a new hose.

You may have even burned out the entire hydraulic servo system.

Better yet, I strongly advise having a certified ASE mechanic check out the entire system; and let them install the new hose since the power steering system will have to be bled.

Lives depend on it.
