Replace the line. stop leak is a gimmick and i never use it. it will leak again in the near future.

clean all of the lines, turn the car on, turn from all the way left to all the way right a few times, and see which line is leaking. it will have new oil on it. then replace that line.

Change the combination power steering hose which is leaking


Is it the power steering hose or a transmission line.Honda does not usually attach power steering lines to the radiator, but the transmission cooler lines are attached to the bottom of the radiator. If it is the transmission cooler line leaking, simply replace the line from the radiator to the transmission with 1/2 inch transmission line and some new clamps.May want to do both lines while you are making the repair.

Power steering leak


with power-steering it could be one of three problems. 1- power steering pump could be going out ( normally with the pump the car will whine but will not normally leak and still hold fluid) 2- a leak in your power steering lines ( and can normally be resolved with new lines or sometimes you may be able to bypass and clamp the leak on the line) 3- you may have busted the O rings in your powersteering pump and that will actually cause the pump to leak

hint- alot of people will tell you that you may also use transmission fluid for power-steering this is true you can its that same thing as power-steering fluid just a different color (but dont put power-steering fluid in a transmission, but at the same time if you plan on replacing the pump i would use transmission fluid due to it being cheaper but it will cause the O rings in the power-steering pump to go out quicker to cause a worse leak) so i would recommend to locate the leak first before using trans fluid due to if its in a line you wont have to replace the pump but if its already the pump this is the cheapest fix until repaired

While turning and hitting a puddle 03 gr Cherokee loses power steering.


is their any chance the belt is getting wet and slipping or do you lose power steering whenever you turn? if so check that all your power steering lines are not leaking (presure line will spray out , return line will just drip) check and repair as necesary

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.

Power steering leaks


Caravans all have the same problem with the power steering pump.The pump rusts and starts leaking from a rot hole in which there is no repair.If its a pressure line or a return line, they can be replaced as well as the steering pump.This is not a big job if your famliar with working on cars,if your not, I would recommend going to a garage.

Power steering leakage includes fuel line leakage...costly repair???


It will not cost all that Much to Repair these yourself. The Power Steering line is a Preassure Line though So, You need to be Extra Careful and Pay attention when Changing it. The rest is Pretty much Common Sense and can be Fixed by ANY Shade Tree Mechanic!
