Question about 1993 Subaru Impreza
1- Power steering leakage on feeder line, about halfway between pump and rack (leak was on a joint between two separate lines) ... lost a lot of power steering fluid.
2- I cutted and replaced with a rubber hose (from a fuel line repair kit)
3- One week later : same thing happened : lost a lot of fluid from the newly installed hose, by leaking from the newly installed hose...
4- Symptoms : Multi-groove accessory belt is slipping on the power steering pump wheel. Looks like a very high pressure is built into the feeder line (relieve valve stuck?? hoses or drive-rack blocked??)
YOU CANT USE A REGULAR FUEL LINE ON POWER STEERING AS A HIGH PRESSURE HOSE.BECAUSE POWER STEERING PRESSURE IS 1000 PSI.YOU HAVE TO BUY THE POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE HOSE IT HAS NUMBER OF PLIES MATERIAL WEAVES TO MAKE IT STRONG.IT WAS MADE FOR POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE.YOU DONT HAVE A BLOCKAGE .THE HIGH PRESSURE HOSE JUST WORE OUT.REPLACE IT .IT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM.
