What location of power streeing pump mazda mpv 2000


The most common source it the high pressure hose that feeds the rack-n-pinion from the pump, or the pump itself. If you follow the large hose from the reservoir it will lead you to the pump. The small metal line leaving the reservoir going to the rack will be the pressure hose. The rack itself is also a good source for a leak. You basically need to get the van up in the air and dry everything off the best you can and look for a source of your fluid loss.

Power steering hose keeps breaking, even when replaced by high pressure hoses. Replacing rack and pinion does not help either.


A bad seal in the rack and pinion would have caused low pressure from fluid by-passing the seal. This also would have caused noticeably increased effort to steer the vehicle. Excessively high pressure would indicate an issue between the power steering pump and the rack, and since the hoses have been replaced I would focus on the pump. PS, find a real mechanic, not a parts changer.

I have a 2001 ford windstar that we have replaced both the powersteering pump, and the attached high pressure hose twice in a months time. The hose keeps blowing the seal just before the threads where it...


Hi Brenda, I'm glad to help!

Brenda, 3 things could be causing this issue. (1) The steering rack could be putting excessive pressure on the pump. (2) The pump that was replaced could be bad. (3) The hose is not fully seated and tightened properly. The repair shop needs to hook up a pressure tester to the pump and see how much pressure it is performing. Excessive pressures from the pump can blow hoses and seals. NOTE: I would make sure the hose is fully tightened before the pressures are checked. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Brenda.

98 Ford power steering keeks bursting the high pressure hose.


it sounds like it is pumping too much pressure, you need to take the vehicle to a power steering specialist & have the pressure adjusted otherwise you will just keep bursting hoses or the seals on the steering rack......hope this helps.....cheers.

AFTER MAKING A U TURN ALL OF MY POWER STEERING FLUID FLOWED OUT . I REFILLED IT 2 BLOCKS FROM HOME IT ALL RAN OUT BY THE TIME I GOT HOME THE LEAK IS ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. COULD IT BE A HOSE.


You has a leak on the high or low pressure return hose.

The high pressure line is machine press on and it heavy duty. (it's between power steering pump and rack)

The low pressure line is thinner.
(It's return from the rack to the pump)

Check for leaks on both lines.

Order the correct section from part store.

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

Power steering rack leaking


If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!
