Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

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? Then do I just add more steering fluid to the tank, once the repair is complete, to replace what was lost? Thanks.

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.

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.

How does one add transmission fluid to 1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo?


Look for the dipstick where you check the transmision fluid level. If you need any you pour it down the dipstick hole. Add it in small amounts and check in between additions, its really easy to overfill. Once overfilled a real pain to get it out.

My 1997 Jeep Cherokee lost its power steering last night, and there was some smoking coming from the pump area. I removed the belt (which was in terrible shape by the way) and top power steering hose. ...


I had the same problem some time ago, spinning the pump does not check it under pressure, suggest you either get a new pump or a replacement from a Breakers, easy to fit and also replace the belt, smoke was probably the belt catching on its track.

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
