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.

SOURCE: steers hard when turning around

try lucas power steering stop-leak. drain some of the fuild and then pour that in. it is for surging rack & pinions, not just for leaks. if that doesn't work then you may have a defective rebuilt rack.
check power steering pump pressure, might be weak.

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.

How to replace high pressure hose on a 1994 Silverado Chevrolet pick up truck.


hmmm..which high pressure hose the a/c or power steering hose...if its the a/c u need to take this to a service center. removing the high pressure hose without recovering the freon can cause serious injury.it is under extreme high pressure at all times even when the truck is not running... if its the power steering hose then start by removing the plastic shield in the steering staft at the steering box on the drivers side frame loosen the 18mm line nut then follow it to the other line nut on the back of the power steering pump....but sometimes the pump may need to be removed to to this, if this is the case i recommend u take it to a service center

Hello, i need to replace a high pressure power steering hos


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!!

How do I replace the power steering pressure switch on a 2000 durango 4.7L engine


The power steering pressure switch is threaded onto the high pressure hose that runs from the pump to the steering rack and pinion gear.
There are two hoses connected to the pump. Follow the high pressure line until you come to the switch, unthread it and install the new one. Fairly easy to do on this one. A little thread seal might be a good idea.
There may be some spillage so have a drain pan ready under the truck and have some new fluid ready to top it up afterward.
Just in case you are curious why the switch is needed I will give you the reason.
Your steering pump is driven by the engine so it does take a little horsepower. When turning it uses a little more power. So the switch sends a signal to the computer to bump the engine power up a little to compensate for the turning load. Keeps the engine speed from going erratic and/or stalling.

I have a 2000 Kia Spectra. I have a bad power steering leak in one of my power steering hoses. I need to know if this hose is the power steering hose or the power steering suction hose?


The the power steering hose is also refered to as the high pressure hose if that is the one thats leaking it's usually easy to find out. While you watch for leaks on the hoses have the car running and have someone turn the steering wheel all the way right or left til it stops it usually will squeal, that is when the hose is at the highest pressure if it's the one leaking you should see it

I need to rplace tke power steering hose on a 2000 kia sephia


we tried fixing the old power steering hose, finally just had it taken off and another made up by an auto shop, cost $65 to have one made. very easy to fix, just undo at each end. this is a pressure hose though so make sure and get the same kind made.
