Hole in the power steering pressure hose (1995 Grand Cherokee)

There is a visible hole in the pressure hose that squirts when the wheels turn. The hole is right on top of the hose (the fluid shoots staright up). How do I replace this hose? The little research I've done so far makes this seem like a relatively inexpensive and not too difficult procedure. Then do I just replace the lost power steering fluid in the tank once the hose is replaced?

Thanks.

Hi rsk,

Messy.

  • If you have a turkey baster no one will miss, use it to **** out as much fluid from the pump as possible.
  • Put a drip pan under the car to catch remaining fluid.
  • Loosen the connecting nut on the leaking hose at the gear box and pull it free. Allow it to drain into the pan. There may be a stress relief bracket, remove it.
  • Loosen the connecting nut on the pump and remove it.
  • Replace the hose, tighten the connectors.
Bleeding:
(Warning: Working on an engine while its running can be dangerous, Be careful, remove watches jewelry, hanging or loose clothes,etc)
  • Wheels straight ahead
  • Add fluid until the Cold mark is reached on the dipstick
  • Start the engine. Allow it to run for a few minutes. Stop the engine.
  • Check the level again. Cold level.
  • Start the engine
  • Turn the wheel from side to side, don't hit the stops, left, right, left right.
  • Stop and check again.
  • Keep doing this until there is no change in the level.
  • Road test the vehicle to check the steering.
That ought to do it
Mike
You have no doubt found how they connect to the gear box. no problems there.

Yes, but you must bleed the air out just as you would in a brake job(wheel cylindershoses,etc,)

Power steering leak


Looks like it is your High Pressure power steering hose gone bad, it will squirt more fluid as you turn the steering wheel. Replace as soon as you can, if that fluid lands on the engine it can easily ignite a fire under your hood, happen to me some time ago when my car began to leak power steering fluid from the high pressure hose and the oil got all over the hot engine, it ignited causing a engine fire. Power steering fluid is very flammable and dangerous when it is close to excess heat from the engine. Most power steering systems have a low and high pressure hose, the high pressure hose takes tremendous hydraulic pressure every time you turn your wheels.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. power stearing leaks


Many times if it's a small leak, a good product such as Lucas steering sealer will help. Don't expect the leak to stop immediately though as the seals take time to swell. If the leak is from a hose, the only way to fix it is by replacement. There is a lot of pressure in there and anything else will not work.
If the seal leak is large, additive may slow it down but that too would need replacement.

This is most likely the power steering pump that you hear. Check the fluid level to be sure it is full. If the fluid is full then the pump is going out. Hope this helps. Good luck.

There is a hole right on top of the power steering pressure hose in my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It squirts fluid up visibly when the engine is on and the wheels are turned. How do I replace this hose?...


Mark the hose at the pump so you'll know which end goes there on the new one. Take the old one with you to compare to the new one. Be sure to thread and tighten carefully. When filling the resevoir, pour a little in, leave the cap off, turn the steering wheel both ways to the stop. This bleeds the air out of the system. Be sure not to over fill or you will blow seals. If when you turn the wheel after the repair is made it is very hard to turn the wheel one way and easy the other way, then your hose is reversed.

Problem with steering wheel


Stay in the Car! LOL you have a problem with your power steering system. 1st Check your fluid level. 2nd check the belt. If you discover everything is ok, replace the power steering pump. That should fix it, however, if you still experience a problem, it will be in your rack and pinion. If you replace the rack and pinion you would want to change the pump anyway so no harm done. Good luck

Using a flair nut wrench, disconnect both ends of the hose & remove it. New one goes back in the same way other one came out. Make sure that any "o" rings (if any) are replaced as new (usually supplied with hose if they're supposed to be there). Make sure that fittings are threading squarely into components and can be finger tightened at least part way to avoid cross-threading fittings. When finished, make sure that hose is not rubbing on anything or it will wear a hole at that point.
RE-fill pump, start vehicle, turn steering wheel all the way to the left, hold it there and count to ten, center wheel, re-fill pump, repeat process, all way to right. (this removes air from system). Top off, check for leaks and you are finished!

1995 jeep grand cherokee limited is not getting power


I think the pump is in the tank as is our '97 so it isn't real loud.  You might have someone turn on the key while you listen.
Also, check on the fuel rail for a tire valve type of widget that may still have a cap on it. If you press it after having the ignition on for a few seconds, it should squirt gasoline all over you, I think the normal pressure is around 15#.
