If you got it at the Auto Parts Store,you either got the wrong hose assy or you will need to get the dealers version ,because the after market doesn't always fit,when it comes to power steering hoses. About the only car partI have seen ,like that, in the last 40 years!

2005 chevy impala 3.4v6 power steering fluid leaking all over alternater and drive belt, car want hardly run,

Sounds like the high pressure power steering hose is leaking. Check it out and if so replace it along with the low pressure return line. If the lines are not leaking then the power steering pump could be the problem.

What is pressure in high pressure line for power stearing

Their are two (2) lines coming out of the back side of the pump, one of them will have a hose type clamp on it and be a bit big around than the other, that one is NOT the high pressure line. it is the return line.

Power steering hose diagram

power steering hoses run from pump to the steering box, (high pressure) and from the steering box to pump (low side).. is a closed connection. pump to box, then from box back to pump. High pressure should have pressed on fittings, while low side may have normal water hose clamps or replaceable hose without pressed on fittings.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire

Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

Hi pressure line leaking on bottom side of power steering pump on 96 windstar. not sure if it's the discharge or return side. it is the line that is fitted to the pump with a clamp and goes down into a...

a pressure line on a power steering pump would be blasting the fluid out,, not just a small leak,, and with power steering hoses, your b est best is to replace the line as factory specs call for,, I have a honda that for some unknown reason they decided the PS hose needed to go all the way around the back of the motor, and back within 8 inches of where it came from to the steering arm,, silly I know, But that way its costs 10 times as much ,

Power steering pump leak

Usually it is the high pressure line. They have compressed fittings, and over time they begin to leak, due to the high pressure.

Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.
