Starter won't engage

I would guess the steering fluid has gummed up your solenoid, making it difficult for your starter to engage the solenoid.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...

The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

Diy fix leak power steering

You have the steering pump,steering hoses
steering rack-- I guess
Somewhat easy to see & get at, except to replace
a rack, that most likely is leaking. Check behind the bellows
by outer tie rods for oil
I would change the rack & put on all new hoses on a car
that old
You can pretty much know what is shot on a car that age
Your going to need to do suspension bushings,ball joints & all
to have a safe car
Pretty much a restoration project of the complete front end
Every time you run low on fluid you wear out the steering pump
a little more & have the groaning noise & part of it is a failed
steering rack that has worn & tightened up also

Power steering leaking

Hi Kirk, I'm glad to help!
Kirk, power steering leaks can come from any part of the power steering system. Fluid can leak from seals on the hoses, the hoses themselves, the power steering pump, the power steering gear assembly, usually leaks from the seals at the end of the gear behind the long boots. These are a few things you can check and see what part you need to replace. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kirk.

Mazda 6 2006 2.3 power steering

Hi Kirk, I'm glad to help!

Kirk, I see you have a power steering leak but the problem is there are a lot of places a leak can come from. Sometimes it leaks from the front seal on the pump itself, if this is the cases then replace the pump. Other times one of the hoses can be leaking, that's an easy one simply replace the hose that's leaking. The serious cases is when the Steering Rack itself is leaking usually behind the rubber boots at each end of the rack. This is where the seals are and when they start leaking the only way to fix it is to replace the Steering Rack. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kirk.

I can't find the thermostat on my 1996 jetta gls

On 1996 VW JETTA,The thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower radiator hose (passenger side). If the car has power-steering, then power steering pump and mounting bracket are to be removed to get to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is at the end of the bottom hose, in the water pump housing. Follow the lower radiator hose to the water pump housing. There are three bolts that are very difficult to navigate around. The thermostat is located behind those bolts.
----------------- Thank you.

My rad keeps leaking antifreeze in 2 areas,one in the back one in the front beside the many hoses to i buy ? also my power steering fluid i have to buy one hose or 2 hoses?

time out! is the hose really leaking or is it the radiator itself? no sense replacing hoses to stop a radiator leak. if it is a hose, there is an upper and a lower. your power steering could be leaking at the rack, or a hose (there are 2, a pressure hose and a return hose), or the pump, or the fluid resevoir. you must be absolutely sure where it is leaking before you buy parts unless you are filthy rich, and if you are, you can adopt me real cheap

Power steering pump leaking on the bottom side hose, does pump need to be replaced or can the hose just be replaced and how difficult . 1991 nissan maxima.

If the leak is from the pump unit it will need to be replaced,
If the leak is just from the hose it can be replaced.
Identify the definite source of the leak, before proceeding.
A new hose could probably be fitted by DIY if you have the correct tools.
