You'll need to look at the lines from under the passenger side of the car. Often, it's a high pressure line. They have compressed fitting on the hoses that often leak, due to the high pressure.

No power steering


Possibly it`s a bad power steering pump. Check the lines for leaks, make sure fluid level is full first. Power steering is a closed system. Some cars are equipped with a rack and pinion steering. Conventional cars have a power steering pump and a gear box.

Power steering went out


Check the power steering fluid. I am sure it is low. If it is low than fill it up but you have a leak. You can determine how bad it is after filling it up again. If your pump has gone out fluid will not help and you need to replace that.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues


The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!








One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

I changed the power steering pump, and know it's hard to steer the wheel


YOU EITHER HAVE ALOT OF AIR IN IT AND IT'S NOISY ALSO OR JUST A BAD PUMP,REMAN PUMP ARE COMMON FOR BEING BAD. IT TAKES MERCON FLUID,MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE IN THERE. YOU CAN USE MERCON V ALSO. YOU'RE NOT GETTING ASSIST MAYBE RACK IS BAD,IF IT LEAKS SEALS MAY BE BAD ALSO LETTING IN AIR. LOOK AT YOUR LINES,MAKE SURE NO LEAKS OR BINDING. DID YOU ALSO REPLACE TEFLON O-RING AT PUMP.

Power steering pump


Do you have the famous power steering fluid leaking and not sure where its going too? I had to replace my power steering lines as it was leaking fluid like a siv slowly at first. It was the rubber on the power steering lines leaking.
