Power steering


You may have to be under the car to trace the line. It will run from the PS pump down behind the engine to where it connects to the rack and pinion steering gear. The rack and pinion is on a subframe piece below and behind the engine. The 2 PS lines connect on the driver's side of the rack and pinion, if like nearly all GM cars.

The pressure line can be disconnected from the pump (suction out the fluid first or it will leak all over), up at top, and then disconnect it at the rack and pinion. If this fitting on the rack is hard to reach, you may need a crows foot wrench to loosen it and remove-I'm not sure about aleros. After disconnecting it top and bottom, check for any brackets that hold the two lines together, and for a bracket that may hold the lines secure on the backside of the engine.

Whats the most common cause of power steering leak lines look good stevelvmc@comcast.net


Hello
The lines are the most commen leak check the hoses where the steel lines are crimped on to the rubber hoses that is where they always leak, also make sure that the lines are tight going into the pump and the rack. I have also replaced the power steering pumps to the seal right behind the pully will leak to sometimes get fluid on to the belt, if it is just replace the pump rather then fighting the seal, the pumps are pretty reasonably priced
Good luck

The line that goes from my rack and pinion to my power steering box busted. what is the name of that ghose so i can go get one


There are 2 lines that service the rack and pinion. One is the high pressure line from the output side of the power steering pump, and the other is the low pressure return line to the power steering pump.

Just determine if it's the output or return line and go to your local auto parts store.

It might not be a bad idea to also pick up a vehicle specific repair manual for precise instructions on how to bleed the lines, etc.

Shouldn't be any problem at all....just a little messy from spilled fluid.

Good luck!

Power steering fluid pours out when i crank the car


When you crank the engine, it rotates the pulley on the power steering pump. As the pump spins the fluid passes through the pump, rack and pinion and the high and low pressure lines. The high pressure lines are usually the culprit. The high pressure line can be identified as a metal line going into a rubber hose off of the power steering pump. Have someone crank the engine as you trace the leak. Be sure to wear safety equipment, like safety glasses and gloves to protect yourself from any squirting fluid.

Trying to find my power steering leak< i need a hose diagram


There are only two that go from pump to the rack and pinion. The high pressure hose, which has partial metal line with high pressure hose crimped to it and the return line which is mostly just rubber hose with some regular clamps to hold it to the metal part coming out of the rack and pinion.

2001 jetta Power steering fluid leak


A power steering system has a rack,fluid tank with hose to pump,pump,high pressure in hose and a low pressure return hose to tank. I f you say theres no leak at the rack that only leaves those other conponents. I would check the pump its self and the high pressure hose where it leaves the pump. It may also be leaking at the tank, where the hose leaves to the pump because it is only fastend down with clips and they can come loose or the hose can split. hope this helps

NEED DIAGRAM FOR POWER STEERING SYSTEM


There is usually no diagram for the power steering on a vehicle. On power steering you have a pressure line and a low pressure return line. The pump is located on the front of the engine and has a line that is bolted into it, this is the pressure line coming out going to the steering gearbox where it is bolted in also. The other line has a clamp holding it in place, this is the low pressure return line coming back from the gearbox. If the gearbox is the rack and pinion steering type then you may have a couple of extra high pressure lines on it to operate the rack portion of the steering. Good Luck, RAC
