The high pressure hose is simple to replace if its not to confined of an area for you. Just un-thread from both sides, fill with power steering fluid, work steering wheel from side to side to work the air out. In between this check fluid levels. If air is still in it will make a whining sound, and bubbles will be visible in the power steering fluid reservoir. Hope I helped you good luck!!

Power steering leak


Looks like it is your High Pressure power steering hose gone bad, it will squirt more fluid as you turn the steering wheel. Replace as soon as you can, if that fluid lands on the engine it can easily ignite a fire under your hood, happen to me some time ago when my car began to leak power steering fluid from the high pressure hose and the oil got all over the hot engine, it ignited causing a engine fire. Power steering fluid is very flammable and dangerous when it is close to excess heat from the engine. Most power steering systems have a low and high pressure hose, the high pressure hose takes tremendous hydraulic pressure every time you turn your wheels.

Starter won't engage


I would guess the steering fluid has gummed up your solenoid, making it difficult for your starter to engage the solenoid.

Power steering fluid is leaking badly. How do I locate the power steering pump and check the lines


Toyota power steering hoses fail very often, not certain what model you have, but follow the hose back from the power steering resiviour,and you will find the pump, then there is a high and low pressure line leading to the steering rack at the rear of the motor, it is usually the high pressure hose that fails

How long would it take to replace the power steering high pressure hoses on a Toyota Camry 1988 4 cyclinder. Do i need any special tools ?


Hi,
It would take 15 minutes to take out that hose and install new one.
You need two open wrench to get it off, one for holding the nut and the other one would be to unscrew it.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Ppower steering pressure hose 1988


There are only 2 hoses in the power steering system.
High pressure feed, and pressure return. They both connect to the power steering pump.
You can get the hoses from a dealer, or a local auto parts store.
Once you have them in hand, they are very simple to identify.
