It is connected to the rack and pinion and leads all the way to the power steering pump which has a pulley on it.
It may have 1 or 2 rubber bends on it with steel on the rest.
The pressure hose carries higher pressure than the return line.

hope this helps.

Can't locate thermostat for 2001 olds silhouette?


Under your front hood, locate your top radiator hose and follow it to where it connects to your engine. The fitting that it attaches to, (and is held on that fitting with a large hose clamp), is the housing for your thermostat. Access the thermostat by removing the hose first, and then by removing the two bolts that hold the housing on to the engine, you will have to pry the housing away from the engine with a standard blade screw driver. once the housing is removed, the thermostat will be visible. note the direction the thermostat is in before removing it. Because it can go back in either way...but only the right way will allow the water to flow correctly in and out of your engine block, so put the new one back in the spot the old one came out of and in the same direction as the old one was in. But before you do that.,, use a putty knife to carefully scrape any pieces or the whole gasket that seals the housing to the engine. the new thermostat will come with a new gasket to use when you put the new thermostat in your system. Make sure your car engine is absolutely cooled off by removing your radiator cap before disconnecting the radiator hose from the thermostat housing. work carefully and good luck be with you.

Leaking power steering unit on 2001 oldsmobile silhouette


You could try adding power steering fluid and see if it makes a difference. If not, then you might want to replace the assembly

When I turn my wheel either left or right it makes a loud whinning noise, and when I turn it, the powersteering fluid seems to leak out?


You have a bad Power steering Pressure hose. The whine is a lack of power steering fluid at the rack, and to continue to drive it this way will destroy the rack and pinion unit.

Wher is the thermostat located on a 2000 olds silhouette?


Follow the large radiator inlet hose from the radiator, to the thermostat housing. Once the housing is located, simply remove the housing to expose the thermostat. It may be necessary to remove the air cleaner and duct assembly, and the crossover exhaust pipe, as well.

2002 silhoutte lower cooling hose leak


Hello, I do not believe I would be so quick to let them put that hose on, until I had a second opinion. That sounds like its a very exspensive hose and labor you really want to get a second opinion. I've been in this line of work over 10 years and worked at GM 3years. I never had a hose that costed much more than a $100, and that was a powersteering hose. Please rate this answer, Thank You.
