If the A/C is OK, just add an aftermarket transmission cooler for the power steering. Saves lots of money.

How to replace return power steering hose on 2008 F-150 4.6L pick-up?

Make sure you have chosen the correct hose. There was a problem with the routing of the hose into a clip on the frame. Either salt or moisture would lay at that junction and corrode a small opening in the metal. At first, instead of a noticeable fluid leak, there is an air leak causing cavitation and foaming of the fluid. Most of the models have an oil cooler so one end of either hose will need to be clamped onto the cooler.

Seems like the power steering pumpis leaking, I have fluid below the truck and allover the top of the steering g ear box, cannot tellif it is leaking from the pump or the lines, I tried putting in Lucas...

If this is around a 1999 F150, it is the Power Steering line going to the front steering oil cooler. There is a plastic clip which holds the line against the frame. Apparently it is a common problem. The plastic part seems to hold road salt and moisture against the metal and it corrodes.

Change the line out or at least take it off and inspect it.

Ihave a steering fluid leak on my 2003 cavalier . first it seemed to leak a litle and now it is just pouring out . How would I fix this problem?

the most common power steering leak in these cars if from the fluid cooler line - it runs straight down from the pump, behind the frame, then up to the rack. if the leak looks like its coming from the passengers feet area, this is the leak. very common. unfortunately, it is slightly beyond the scope of a home repair as the front frame needs to be dropped down slightly to gain access to change the line. the line costs aprox. $150 CDN and i believe about 1.5 - 2 hours shop time for labor. good luck!

2007 honda odyseey VSA modulator does it impact power steering? had the recall repair completed today drove 30miles lost all power steering fluid vehicle has never leaked any fluid. 57,000 miles work...

VSA is Vehicle Stability Assist and is related to ABS braking.
The power steering issue could just be a series of unfortunate events but it does sound suspicious. I'd try to figure out what caused the fluid to leak and where the leak is in relation to the VSA that was replaced before I took it back to the dealer.
i.e. If the VSA is on the other side of the engine compartment, it's probably not the dealer's fault. If they are right next to each other, something might have happened.

Ford mondeo 1.8 td diesel, the problem is the power steering fluid is leaking, when i check it look like it was coming from the middle part of the can i fix it and what parts do i need to get...

Have a look at the power steering fluid cooler it is just in front of the radiator behind the front bumper. The coolers corrode and leak. Also the seals can go, check for fluid leaking out of the boots at the track rods. Try this procedure :--- 1)Trace the source of the leak. Use a mirror on an extended handle to follow the puddle of fluid on your garage floor to the power steering system. Look on the hoses and gaskets to find from where the fluid could be leaking. 2) Add power steering stop leak additive to your power steering fluid. Lucas Power Steering Stop Additive is 100 percent guaranteed to stop seal leaks. In older cars, the seals shrink, causing leaks. The stop leak makes the seals swell to their original size. 3) Use gasket sealant if the gaskets are old and leaking. Sealant, such as Permatex, is resistant to engine fluids, and will help repair a leaky gasket. 4) Replace the gasket, if the gasket sealant does not work. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
