NO POWER STEERING with leak could it be the rack the leak is in the center below the the motor


Yes, that is where the rack is. But if it is a hose or hose fitting that is leaking, it is not as bad as the rack itself leaking. Big expense there, replacing a rack and pinion gear assembly. Where you see the leaking fluid would be about where the PS hoses connect to the rack, so you should have it looked at to really know how bad it is.

Is it possible for power steering fluid to get into the engine and mix with the oil? I am loosing fluid and there are no visible leaks, the engine oil and filter was recently changed and now has turne


No, the power steering is entirely a separate and sealed system, wholly external to the engine. The power steering pump pushes the fluid through a high pressure hose into the rack and pinion-the steering gear mounted below and behind the engine-and holds pressure within the rack that enables power assisted steering. At the same end where the power steering fluid hose enters the gear will be a fitting for a return line back to the fluid reservoir. These two hoses are usually routed close together at least part of the way, some may even be held together with brackets. Leaks could develop at the pump, the fluid reservoir, or the two hoses to and from the rack and pinion, or the seals inside the rack and pinion may have failed. You should be able to find the leak-it will only leak to the outside-to check the rack and pinion for leaks, right where your tie rods come out of the gear and go to the wheels for steering, will be a small rubber boot encasing the tie rod and the end of the rack assembly-on both ends is a boot and a tie rod-peel back the rubber boot from the gear ass\'y, it should be dry. If a lot of fluid, the seals in the rack and pinion are gone. It will have to be replaced.
Hopefully you will find a leaking hose or fractured reservoir, but keep looking, air flow may be blowing the leaking fluid back and under the car. Good luck, hope it\'s not the rack and pinion.

How much does it cost to replace the power steering hose on a 2006 pontiac grand prix?


Which hose is it, low pressure return or high pressure line?
Usually lookin at min 1 to 2 hours labor no matter what is leaking.
hose assemblies average 30 to 50 dollars approx. So Questimate would come in at anywhere between $80 to $170. Unless a pump or rack & pinion is needed.

Does a 1997 grand gt 3.1 liter have rack & pinion steering? I'm told the power steering went out and I don't know if it might be the pump or what.


Your car does have rack and pinion steering. If all of the fluid leaked out somewhere and you continued to drive, you probably have 2 problems to repair:

1. What ever started leaking (return hose, rack, pressure hose, or could just be the pump itself)
2. Power steering pump was damaged from lack of lubrication (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.

My 1992 Pontiac Grand Am is leaking power steering fluid when I turn. What hose needs replaced?


It is most likely the pressure hose if the leak is below the pump. If you see the leak further back, it could be a hose or the rack and pinion assembly. A closer look should reveal the source. Wash it off and have someone assist you. The red fluid should show up better this way.

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.
