    When my pressure PS hose blew off, I inspected it and was amazed it held for even a month. The pump side retainer was a very flimsy bronze colored ring. I didn't want to risk buying a new hose with the same issue, so I repaired mine using a bigger and thicker retainer. Had to grind down the hollow nut on the end half a millimeter to accommodate it.
    The other side of the hose was flanged, which posed no problem.

Power steering fluid leaking on 2002 pontiac grand prix


OK you know the problem but is it something as simple as replacing the Power steering hose or as complicated as also needing a new power steering pump also? Look at where its leaking to determine what needs replacing. Remember it just takes a little time to determine where its leaking. If you find that its not the hose leaking but its the power steering pump then follow these easy steps and save $100s doing it yourself:
1 Remove the negative battery cable with a wrench and place it aside. Remove the upper strut housing tie bar if necessary for access. Remove the power steering serpentine drive belt and electrical plug on the TFE off as applicable. Remove the lower bolt from the mounting bracket using a socket and ratchet if necessary for access. Take off the inlet and outlet hoses from the power steering pump. Remove the reservoir hose only on the supercharged engine. You will need a flat-head screwdriver for this task.
2 Place the power steering pump pulley so the bolts can be accessed through the hole in it. Remove the mounting bolts, using a socket and ratchet, through the hole in the pulley. Take the power-steering assembly out from the bracket. If necessary transfer the pulley to the new pump with a pulley puller.
3 Replace the power steering pulley assembly before you install the pump using the pulley-install tool from your kit. Start the power steering inlet hose connection to the pump by hand. Replace the power steering pump assembly to the engine. Replace the lower bolt first, making sure the hose and heater pipe have enough clearance so they do not touch. If the two rub together they will make noise after the installation is finished. Replace the outlet hose to the pump, directing the hose under the engine harness and the heater hose. If the engine is supercharged it will be necessary to connect the hose from the reservoir.
4 Torque the power steering gear inlet hose to 20 foot-pounds and the hose clamp at the pump to 15 inch-pounds. Torque the pump mounting bolts to 20 foot-pounds. If equipped with a TFE pump, attach the connection. Replace the power steering drive belt or serpentine belt if you removed either. Replace the upper strut tie bar and torque the nuts to 18 foot-pounds. Replace the negative battery cable and fill the power steering reservoir with fluid. Bleed the steering system by starting the engine and turning the steering wheel right and left until all the air is out.

Fix power steering leak


You need to determine where the leak is originating. The possbilities are:

1. Leaking from the power steering pump.
2. Leaking from the high pressure hose at the steering rack
3. Leaking from the return hose at the steering rack
4. Leaking from the steering rack boot(s).

Once you find the leak source, replace that component.

Steering rack leaking fluid


Check the power steering hose to the end at the steering rack. There is a good chance that the hose may be leaking or where the hose connects to the steering rack is where your leak is coming from. Note that power steering fluid is flammable and if sprayed on any hot surface like the exhaust manifold may cause in a car fire. Good luck and Auto Zone should have the replacement hose with the step by step instructions to replacing it.

I have a 2000 Kia Spectra. I have a bad power steering leak in one of my power steering hoses. I need to know if this hose is the power steering hose or the power steering suction hose?


The the power steering hose is also refered to as the high pressure hose if that is the one thats leaking it's usually easy to find out. While you watch for leaks on the hoses have the car running and have someone turn the steering wheel all the way right or left til it stops it usually will squeal, that is when the hose is at the highest pressure if it's the one leaking you should see it
