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.
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.
it depends where it is leaking from,if is a hose fitting it might just need tightening up,if it is from the power steering pump it is most likely the front seal behind the pulley & it will have to be replaced, or replace the whole pump, if it is the steering rack it could be the the pinion seal ( where the steering column connects ) at the ends of the rack where the tie rod connects (inside the rubber boots) all these seals can be replaced ,but sometimes it is better to fit reconditioned units, depending how many kilometeres/miles the vehicle has done.....hope this helps....cheers
These pumps are known to blown out the front shaft seal. But your problem is at the high pressure line. Remove the line and buy a new teflon seal or o-ring. Don't over-tighten!! The torque specs on these are pretty low and most people overtighten and crack the seal.
1) Belts: Timing belt, alternator belt, A/C belt, power steering belt. 2) Water pump and seal. 3) Timing belt tensioner- option. 4) Front crank oil seal-replace if oil is leaking. 5) Two camshaft seals-replace if oil is leaking. 6) Instruction on how to install the timing belt.
The power steering pump is piggie backed to the vacuum pump. The seal in the back of the vacuum pump has engin oil under presure behind it cousing a leak that gets worse over time. Cummins make a seal kit to fix this leak.
The front pump seal on the power steering pump - located behind the power steering pump pully tends to leak on these. To fix it you are better off replacing the entire pump assembly because the drive shaft tends to wear crooked and messes up the seal. Also, these are known for oil cooler lines leaking which is directly below power steering pump which can be mistaken for power steering pump leak.
Check the pump front seal, Wipe down the hoses and check the crimp fittings for leakage Also look carefully at the steering gear, the fitings and pitman arm seal ( this one is on the bottom) and the seal where the steering column goes in.
